Meet your average “drug dealer”
I don’t meet the big shot professional dope dealers that the public imagines when they think of the profession. I can’t say that they don’t exist, but if they do, they rarely get caught and they don’t live in Bakersfield. The people I represent every week are, almost to a person, drug users who sell to their friends to support their habit. It is a far less exciting and romantic image than what you see on TV.
Your average drug dealer is pretty low end. If they are lucky, like this guy, they manage to just support their own habit. They are their own best customers. The big life, with stacks of hundreds and a fancy car? That just isn’t happening.
