“This isn’t something I can do forever,” Carlo told me. “People always get caught. Someone gets jealous, your phone gets tapped, someone snitches, or you get stupid and sell something in the wrong place.” As we spoke, his phone vibrated constantly; he responded to each text, scheduling his evening ahead.
Carlo has been dealing for almost 15 years. He sells marijuana, cocaine, ketamine, and magic mushrooms, but his most-prized asset is his connection to a Canadian MDMA distributor.
