What’s a customer base?
Your customer base are the people who buy weed from you, time after time again. You could make a one time drug deal with a person you don’t know occasionally, but by the far, almost all your money should come from your customer base. The customer base should consist of friends that wouldn’t snitch you out and preferably don’t like the police. The customer base does not employees who sell for you, bribed police on your side or your bodyguards. Your customer base is your revenue.
How do you build a customer base?
It takes a while to build a customer base, but it starts with you. It takes time to develop devoted customer and you need to be a reliable dealer.
- Always have a reserve of weed, so if a customer calls at any time, you’ll be able to supply 24/7.
- Don’t scam your customers. If your selling them schawg (shitty marijuana), then tell your customers and charge accordingly.
- If your customer complains, listen attentively and don’t argue. For example; if a customer claims, that you shorted them… then just give the customer what they say you owe them, even if your sure you didn’t scam them. If you piss off your customer, you not only lose money, but the customer could turn to a snitch.
- Have a price set in stone that both you and the customer know that you will deliver on. Don’t sell for less or else the customer will think that’s the new price.
- Occasionally give freebies to loyal customers.
Below are three different groups that you can sell to. If your starting out dealing, you will have to start with group 1 and then progress at group 2. If your not comfortable with group 3, that’s fine… just stick to dealing with group 2, as there is still plenty of money to be made.

Out of all the rules and bullshit you have to follow when your a dealer, you should remember one thing above all. Don’t get caught. That doesn’t mean don’t get arrested… that means don’t be anybodies’ bitch in some dirty cell. Prison… avoid prison at all costs. You can get arrested, but the courts have to convict you beyond a reason of a doubt. That means that everyone has to be 100% certain that you are a dealer. So even if there is some evidence and it’s believable that you could be a dealer, the jury has to know for sure that your a dealer before your convicted.
- Undercover cops DO NOT have to tell you that they are cops
- They aren’t supposed to take drugs (a few will disregard this) but they are very good at faking it.
- They can buy and sell drugs.
- But they cannot let those drugs get into the system (into the public’s hands)
- Undercover cops are almost always introduced through an informant (snitch)
The biggest rule to avoid getting caught is keeping a “tight circle.” That means that no one outside of your customer base knows you have anything to do with marijuana. Furthermore, everyone in your customer base should be friends with you, so if they get caught, they won’t snitch on you. You should also consistently remind your customers that you won’t sell or accept their their friends or acquaintances into your customer base. Don’t let your customers decide who is in your customer base because that’s how undercover cops get in.
Imagine this setting…
One of your customers is driving with some marijuana they bought from you. They get pulled over, the cops search their car and find the marijuana.
Your customer get arrested and decides that in order to avoid jail time, they’re going to snitch and help the police. So, a little later your hanging out in bar with your customer (friend) when some guy walks up and your customer greets him. Then your customer introduces him as some badass weed seller.You hang out with this cool guy and figure out that he had a crazy past and is an expert when it comes to marijuana. So while you feeling the buzz of alcohol, you spill your thoughts and tell this guy that he should join you in your marijuana deals. Next thing you know, he’s watching your back while your dealing pounds around your city.
Then late one night, you wake up to some bang and within seconds a bunch of guys dressed as ninjas are pointing a bunch of mp5s at you and your facing 10 years in prison… Don’t let this happen to you. Watch who you talk to about marijuana and don’t sell to anyone you don’t trust.
Many cops can fake that they smoke marijuana, but no one can fake a hit from a bong. So offer anyone new in your customer base a bong hit, if they reject, ask them why.
If they say they don’t smoke marijuana, then that person could very well be an undercover cop (what kind of dealer doesn’t use their own product)?That’s not foolproof though, as some cops will take drugs.
Cops also can’t let drugs get into the system. That means cops can buy and sell drugs, as long as they can recover those drugs later. So ask anyone in suspicion if you can buy a little marijuana off them and tell them that your going resell it. Undercover cops can’t let you do that.
Furthermore, thanks to the internet, information is readily available. You can casually ask them what high school they went to and look up that information online (look at their myspace, facebook, etc). Beware of anyone your friends introduce to you, as they could’ve become informants and are introducing to you an undercover cop.
Unlike with undercover cops, you can’t be reactive to snitches, you have to be proactive. That means you have to see into the people you sell to and hang out and see if they would snitch on you. Snitches have many characteristics.
- Have an incessant fear of prison and cops
- Believe it’s better to “just be honest.”
- Have never done time before or never dealt with police before
- Or have done time and snitched out on their buddies.
- May believe they are the most important in the group (arrogant)
These are big signs of a to be snitch waiting to happen. First off, if they’re constantly paranoid of the police even when they don’t have to be, then that’ s a big tipoff. What’s gonna happen to that person if they do get caught? They’re gonna freak out and not think right and in order to avoid prison, they’ll snitch everyone out.
The second characteristic is “better to be honest, then get into yourself into a hole of lies.” That’s very true when it comes to your friends or family… but no the police. Don’t tell police anything except who you are and where you live. When your caught, you just sit silent and say you’d like to speak with an attorney. You have that right to shut the fuck up, but most don’t use it.
The third characteristic only is a tipoff for a snitch if the two above are also true, otherwise discard this rule. If someone has never dealt with the police, believes in honesty all the time and is constantly afraid of the police, then they will snitch. Why? Because these people can’t handle the pressure, the only exit sign for them is to be honest. They view as telling the police everything that happened, not only as just the “right thing to do” but also a way to save their ass. Watch out.
The fourth characteristic is obvious, if the person has snitched out before, then chances are they’ll do it again, no matter what they tell you. Get used to it, it’s reality.
The fifth characteristic isn’t exactly a big giveaway, but it is a clue. If the person in question isn’t on the top of your drug organization and they are arrogant, then this could pose problems. When your in a drug ring with someone, you must treat them as a equal… as a brother. But someone who is arrogant won’t do this, they view everyone as below them.
Most “snitches to be” are caught during small time drug deals or with a small amount of drugs on them. In order to avoid prosecution, they snitch out on their employer or the drug dealer above them. Then that drug dealer snitches and the snitching doesn’t stop until the top guy is finally arrested. Weed out the people that you think will be snitches. That doesn’t mean stop being friends… just don’t tell them about your drug business and don’t let them in on it.
Remember, only you can prevent snitching.

Why sell marijuana in bulk?
It’s far better to sell marijuana in bulk because there’s less risk. Instead of doing a dozen separate drug deals, you can just cash in by selling all your product in one big deal. Although you will make a little less profit, you will reduce your risk tenfold if you sell bulk. Let others break it up and sell it for scraps.Of course, you can do small deals too, but selling marijuana in bulk is how you should make most of your money.
What is bulk?
The term bulk depends on your state. It could mean you sell from a couple of pound to half an ounce. Go here to NORML and click here on the state. Look under “possession” and find the first penalty and the amount. Don’t sell more marijuana then that amount.
For example in California; less then an ounce (28.5 grams) is just a $100 fine. Which means, outside of your home you should never carry more then 28.5 grams or you could be looking at up to 6 months in prison. Let’s look at another example, In California, if however you are caught selling, you are screwed (which is why you should sell to reliable customers). But… there is an exception. If you are caught “gifting” less then an ounce (28.5 grams), your only looking at a $100 fine. Aha!
That means, your marijuana deals should play out like this… You should place the marijuana in a secret location before the deal. Then go up to your customer, greet him/her and have them front you the money. You should say “thanks for paying me back” (if they are wearing a wire, it won’t look suspicious in court that you accepted money). Then leave the scene and call them and tell them the location of where you stashed their weed. Therefore, if you do get caught, it looks like you gave them the marijuana as a “gift” (or at least you can argue that in court). If the customer is unwilling to front you their money, then whisper the stash location in their ear (a wire won’t pick this up).
Let’s look at another example. If you look at Alabama; you’ll see that you can yet the same sentence for having one gram as having up to a 2.2 pounds of marijuana. In this case, selling bulk would mean selling one to two pounds of pot. Don’t bother with little shit (like dime bags and eights). Now if you notice in Alabama, there are further penalties for selling to a minor or selling anywhere near a school or housing project. Therefore, you must choose a location to sell which is at least three miles away from any school or housing project. This may seem like a bitch to do, but 5 years of prison additional to whatever else your charged with, is no joke. Furthermore, don’t sell to any minors. The possibility of a life sentence just doesn’t make it worth it. Besides, most minors won’t be able to afford to buy a pound in marijuana.
Now, of course a marijuana deal involving an ounce is not as high risk as one involving a couple of pounds. Remember your two biggest threats are people attacking you for your marijuana and undercover cops.
