Did you know the same kids who sling crack on street corners also sometimes work a second job at McDonalds and other fast food joints?


Because very often these marketers of death are the only employment game there is.

Question: How dangerous is it to be a street level dealer for a drug gang?

Answer: You literally have a better chance of surviving on death row.

What do street corner crack dealers get paid when all the smoke clears
(so to speak)?

About $7 an hour.

All the real money flows to the top, just like at McDonalds.
