How much does meth cost?

clickaway How much does meth cost?(2006)
I ask this because I honestly don't know.

For someone who uses everyday, what is the cost each week? What is the cost per buy? And exactly how much are you buying?

I know it is probably different for everyone, but I just would like a general idea.

Hope this is ok to ask.
Re: How much does meth cost?
in Texas

1/4 of gram is $20
1/2 of gram is $40
1 gram is $80

16th (which is a gram and 3/4 of a gram ) 120.00

8 ball which is 3 1/2 grams is $200.00

Just depending on how much of a habit you have decides the cost. You would also have to factor in how much money you had to spend as you can see here in Texas you get better pricing in quantity

How long would an 8 ball typically last? A week? Two weeks? A month?

I'm trying to guesstimate out how much my bf is spending on his habit.
Re: How much does meth cost?
depends in your tolerence.

when I first started an 8 ball lasted a week.

when I quit, it lasted 2 days.
clickaway Re: How much does meth cost?
So, if he's been doing it for 10 years, would you think he's doing an 8 ball every 3 days?
Re: How much does meth cost?
I think that's a realistic assumption.

....but after 10 years...he could get 8 balls for 160.
or if he knows a cook, cheaper.
clickaway Re: How much does meth cost?
So, he's spending approximately $640 a month on meth. Geez, I didn't realize it was that much.

To be honest, I don't even know what an "8 ball" is.
Re: How much does meth cost?
3.5 grams

and the cost - depends.
What are you willing to give?
Your home?
Your family?
Your friends?
Your health?
Your life?

It will cost as much as you will give. It is up to you what the price is.

I was using this much per day, or more, by the time I quit nearly 10 years ago. The cost was far more than I ever dreamed in my worst nightmares it would be. My job, my house, my cars, my husband, my dogs, my dignity, my self-respect, the respect of my community and friends, my freedom, oh hell, EVERYTHING, right up to the point where I was standing at death's door, all 85 pounds of skin and bones of me.

As far as dollars and cents for just the drug itself, I was spending an easy $100 per day.
