Pretty interesting slang tho, i have never heard of a "henry" or a few other of those.
Monkey is also vaguely from the Boston area. Price discussion is forbidden but Monkey didnt see any prohibition on weights and measures talk.....
a "bag"=.1-.2 g, usually cut to shit and not worth it.
a bundle = 10 of above bags, at a discount
a gram=a gram
a finger=5 grams
Commonly the quality dealers around here offer 1/2 grams of fairly pure scag for a reasonable price. the above is when dealing with street idiots, although anyone trying to buy quantity on the street is asking to get their money taken. Sad to say, dope is the most ruthless of all the games.
To paraphrase Burroughs "Junk is the perfect product, the user will crawl through a sewer and beg to buy"
Speaking of which, the Monkey needs to go massage his back now.
