Wondering why you can't get your dealer on the phone? Well, last week 103 (suspected) drug retailers were pinched in a good old-fashion crackdown in the TL and Mission/Market Street areas.

Similar to the one that happened in July, these crackdowns mean that the price of poisons are going up, and so is drug-related crime. The Chronicle reports that "the narcotics unit seized $1.5 million in methamphetamine in the first six months of the year, and the price on the street has gone from $12,000 a pound to $17,000 a pound," going on to say, "with a price increase...more dealers are coming from out of town and drug-related violence has increased as dealers fight over turf."

Such gaiety, really! Disco dust prices soar while violence on the streets increases!
