I am trying to think of a good “day in the life” story I can tell about my time in coerced sex work under Barn Cat’s control. I think that’s why Barn Cat stopped buying from him, because he didn’t like me having friends of any sort. OK IT’S COERCED SEX WORK STORY TIME AGAIN It’s been 2 years, so I think I can tell this story without getting anyone in trouble. Thanks, Stamos, if you’re still out there, even though Stamos isn’t your real name and I’m pretty damn sure you’re not on twitter. This is the story of The Really Nice Drug Dealer Who Gave Me Free Xanax You’re already familiar with me, the protagonist of these stories, and Barn Cat, my abusive boyfriend/captor, who used $100-$300 worth of heroin a day, which is why I was doing sex work in the first place. Thank you for helping me, and for being a real friend in a dark time. Now let me introduce you to The Nicest Drug Dealer Ever. Because he was really really handsome, like young John Stamos. When I first met him, he didn’t like Barn Cat, because Barn Cat had previously ripped him off. He just made his living selling something illegal … But then Barn Cat introduced me — me, who was making a couple hundred dollars a day. So because I gave Barn Cat all my money, Stamos decided to sell him heroin again, and life was “good,” for a given value of the word good. Bipolar people should never be given Effexor, because it CAUSES manic episodes. That little sliver of kindness, that instinct to help someone. For a while, I found a place to stay near Stamos’ place. Like the one I was in when I decided to be homeless with Barn Cat. Barn Cat had all of that, and I had just run off from him because I was so upset. I had about 12 hours of Good Brain left before I knew the withdrawals would set in. So I would do my incalls, slip the money under the door to Barn Cat waiting in the hall, he would walk down to Stamos’ place, and I would meet him there after I was done working. Effexor ALSO has about a 24 hour half life, and missing a dose causes withdrawal symptoms like hallucinations, seizures, and horrifying nightmares. I hitched a ride from a stranger who had an open bottle of wine in his lap. The street price of Xanax varies from region to region and country to country. S., Xanax can cost as little as $2 for a 1mg pill, or as much as $10. On the internet (via the Darknet), prices for Xanax can be much less. Enough Alprazolam (the non-branded drug name) for 500 Xanax pills can be bought for as little as $50. No, it is illegal to buy and use Xanax without a prescription. Legal consequences of selling Xanax illegally can include 10-15 years in prison. Furthermore, Xanax bars bought on the street do not contain know amounts of Alprazolam, which greatly increases the risks of overdosing. Only purchase Xanax from a pharmacy with a doctor’s prescription.
The search for relief from anxiety drives millions of Americans to take alprazolam, or Xanax, every year. According to Psychiatric Times, over 50 million prescriptions were written for Xanax in 2009, making it the most commonly prescribed psychiatric drug in the country. This popular medication, which belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, acts within minutes to ease the symptoms of severe distress and prevent panic attacks. But the fast-acting sedative properties of Xanax also make this drug highly attractive to recreational drug users — many of whom find themselves addicted. As one of the most popular medications in the United States, Xanax is readily available to legitimate users and recreational users alike. On the streets, Xanax is distributed under a number of slang names: “xanies,” “zany bars,” “footballs,” “X’s,” “Christmas trees,” “planks,” “bars,” “blues,” “pink ladies,” and “blue devils.” This drug has become so accessible that even high school students find it easy to obtain. According to the 2013 Monitoring the Future survey, a majority of 12 graders said that Xanax was their favorite choice among tranquilizers. The sedative is said to be 20 times stronger than Valium and its sale is illegal in the UK. Growing numbers of teens are combining it with alcohol and cannabis in a potent cocktail which can leave users in a “zombie” state. A Daily Star reporter posing as a schoolgirl found dozens of dealers willing to sell the tranquiliser for as little as £2 a pill. Our girl found someone selling both Xanax and cannabis within minutes of searching on Instagram. Despite telling him she would be in school, the dealer offered next-day delivery complete with a tracking number. In chats using the messaging service Wickr he arranged to send £50 of Xanax through the post. Our shocking discovery came just days after MPs debated the misuse of Xanax in parliament.
Dealers are selling fake xanax pills, leaving "clients" to pay the ultimate price. We’re feeling the anxiety these days and an increasing number of people are turning to drugs like Xanax – a mild sedative used to treat anxiety – as a way to better function in their daily lives. Xanax's scarcity in the UK means that for illicit dealers, getting regular supplies of the drug is difficult. So in late 2015 some innovative dealers.
