"The plight of the neighborhood pot dealer just got a lot harder in Colorado. In Denver, many think they'll go extinct."That’s in Colorado. We have local dealers with home grown stash in western Montgomery County. You can probably score on some by driving up Route 29 and 73. But here in Coatesville it comes mostly through Mexican drug cartels.
Just a few years ago we had to wait in traffic backed up while there was a customer or several stopped in the street waiting for someone to bring out his goods. Chief Bellizzzie said it was an open-air drug bazaar.
That was in 1999 but in 2007-08 it was Déjà vu all over again. It was something like “Hampsterdam” in “The Wire” except with white addict/dealers from the suburbs of Coatesville as the car customers.
With Chief Laufer here those times are well behind us. But I still see traffic slow down on certain blocks of Lincoln Highway with people from outside Coatesville looking to score.
OK, maybe most of it is heroin and cocaine but you can get almost anything in Coatesville and some of the people cruising Coatesville are looking for marijuana.
