Since March 2007 the cocaine supply in the United States has decreased dramatically. Some say Lindsay Lohan and Britney have snorted up most of the supply but either way take a look at some of the statistics release recently by the Executive Policy & Strategic Planning Staff (ie DEA).

  • From January through June 2007, the average price per pure gram of all domestic cocaine purchases increased 24 per cent, from $95.89 to $118.70, while purity fell 11 per cent, from 67 per cent to 59 per cent.
  • From January through June 2007, the retail (involving amounts up to ten grams) price per pure gram of cocaine increased 15 per cent, from $145.42 to $166.90.
  • From January through June 2007, the mid-level wholesale (involving amounts between one and ten ounces) price per pure gram of cocaine increased 33 per cent, from $53.09 to $70.39.
  • From January through June 2007, the wholesale (involving amounts of one kilogram or more) price per pure gram of cocaine increased 11 per cent, from $20.85 to $23.04. (Source)

Coke seems to be a much better investment than my Google stock. Volume on the cocaine markets remained high as well with 11,586 transactions recorded during the price research.
