The UK’s biggest drug retailer is selling an entirely new line to tackle the problems that come with dealing in the country’s booming illicit drug trade.
Key points:Tobacco and heroin are both increasingly becoming more expensive, with tobacco prices climbing as high as £500 per gram in the past yearTobacconists are already seeing higher prices for drugs, which is likely to drive the industry to expand into more illicit marketsDrugs such as fentanyl are becoming harder to come by in the legal marketTobacoin, which has a street value of £25bn, is also being sold in legal outlets as well as onlineTobaccos are being sold online and at flea markets for up to £20.
There are fears that the growing popularity of online sales could push the price of drugs like fentanyl, which the UK has seen jump from about £50 per kilogram to £700, from legal to illegal.
Tobaca, the UK’s leading drugstore chain, said it was launching its new line, called Tobacco, at the start of next month.
Its new line is designed to reduce the risk of drug overdose, by reducing the price to £250 per gram, which could be made more affordable by introducing cheaper pills, and by allowing customers to choose from a range of different products.
Drug dealers have said that they are seeing more people seeking help in buying cheaper pills and are increasingly finding that cheaper products have more of a “cleaner” smell.
Toby Maclaren, director of drug policy at the charity DrugScope, said: “With prices of fentanyl, fentanyl analogue, cocaine and cannabis skyrocketing, it’s no surprise that a lot of people are turning to Tobacoin to help them access the cheaper, cleaner alternatives.”
But what’s really concerning is the potential for a legal market to become flooded with cheaper drugs that are becoming more difficult to access.
“Drugs like heroin are increasingly becoming harder and more expensive to obtain, with the price rising from around £500 to £500 and up to more than £1,000 per kilo, according to DrugScope.
There have been reports of people buying drugs on the internet, which can then be purchased at a wholesale market.
This is likely also to push tobacco prices down further, according in a recent report by the DrugScope think tank.
Travellers in London and the rest of the UK are currently buying cheaper drugs online, often for around £5 per packet, in exchange for the convenience of the convenience store experience.
In February, a man in Bristol was arrested after he was caught with a kilo of heroin on his body after purchasing it online for just £3.
It’s not yet clear if this new drugstore is the first to launch in the area.
In the UK, the Drugscope report found that drug prices were rising rapidly in April and May of last year, which prompted a major warning from the UK Drug Strategy.
A number of different drugs are available for sale online, and some are even cheaper than tobacco.
In an effort to curb drug use, the government in March announced a £7m initiative to tackle online drug use.
This includes introducing online drug markets to combat the growing problem of heroin and cocaine trafficking.
Drugs which are more expensive than tobacco or cocaine are also increasingly being sold as part of a new online market.
According to a recent survey by Ipsos MORI, there are currently 1,200 online drug dealers across the UK and around 400 drug shops.
In a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph, Terence Gannon, chief executive of Tobacconist, said the new Tobacoins were the “biggest online drug marketplace yet”.
He said the drugstore, which was established in 2012, had seen the biggest increase in sales and profits in its seven years in operation.
Toboaconists have already seen higher prices on their drugs, with a new price of £250 for a packet of Tobacoinos at the end of June.
Mr Gannon said the price had risen because of “higher demand”, and that the increase was expected to continue into the coming months.
He added that the new drugs were cheaper than cigarettes because of their higher purity, and that people were buying them for recreational use instead of for addiction treatment.”
They’re being sold for recreational purposes and not for addiction,” Mr Gannon told the Telegraph.”
I’m surprised people are taking them as a recreational drug.
“Mr Gatton added that a new product was also on the way.
He said he expected the new drug store to launch before the end, although he would not disclose any further details.
Tobiq, the largest online drugstore in the world, is another company that is expected to launch a Tobacooin brand before the autumn.
Tribeca, the leading online drug distributor in Europe, is planning to launch the brand in September.”
