In the mid 90's heroin popped up in Louisville pretty heavily...not because of widespread usage, but because of the importers' desire to quickly establish a strong customer base and thus support an ongoing business.And it failed.Then, the attempt was made by a fairly organized family of immigrants from Vietnam. The venture couldn't create enough market to make the risk and expense of importing heroin profitable, and a couple of the guys got busted with some big prison sentences.The heroin started popping up inside of the prison, and even failed market testing there- they would have honestly done better both legally and financially dealing in weed from the get-go.
Today what you're hearing about is migrant workers trying to find other ways to make money with semi-skilled labor being in low demand and residential construction at a standstill.It isn't going to catch on, it'll fail probably worse than before, and dry up fairly quickly.I've never tried Heroin, but I've met junkies - it's shit to stay away from.The dealers will quickly realize it as well, it doesn't matter what kind of retail business you have, you manage inventory in such a way as to make profit. If this is a new business, one or two busts and little return will quickly shut it down. If it's the same crew that hustles all the coke into Louisville, they'll quickly find the client base less desirable and numerous while running the same risks on their existing venture.
In any case, besides the obvious, " If you don't buy it, they'll stop selling it", I'll contact all of the major illicit drug organizations and sternly warn them that Severs is going to tell on them if they don't clean their act up.
It's already "caught on" well over a year ago, going on two. It's getting worse.
Obviously, the shit doesn't come from KY. So, of course someone or lots of someones are bringing it in. I don't know who those people or groups are but those aren't the people this message is for. This message is for the people that ARE in our circles who ARE selling it because the old adage goes both ways - "If no on is there to sell it, then no one CAN buy it".
