Cocaine In Britain Now Cheaper Then Alcohol

February 13, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – According to experts in the United Kingdom, cocaine in the region has now become cheaper per line then the average glass of wine, more then half as cheap as it was a decade ago.

The British Home Office said that price had fallen drastically since 1998, when a gram of cocaine was estimate at £77 ($110 USD). It is now estimated to cost about £40 ($57 USD). A gram of cocaine can hold as much as twenty lines.

“A reduction in price may be associated with increased competition or reduced demand, not just increased availability,” a spokesperson for the Home Office explained.

“In relation to cocaine the average purity at street level has declined continuously for a number of years, from 51% in 2003 to 34% in 2007.”

Regardless, the Conservative British Party, the Tories, have used the statistics to argue that the leading Labour Party have failed in the fight against illegal street drugs.

“These startling figures show the reality of drug use in Britain,” Conservative minister, James Brokenshire, said in an official statement.

“Price falls of this nature indicate that the supply of hard drugs into this country has jumped. It’s a serious indictment of Labour’s failure to combat drug crime and stem the flow of drugs onto our streets.”
