Face-bong: Online drug market

Posted by: Neil Mitchell | 21 November, 2013 - 8:34 AM

We have unearthed a drug dealing ring being run online out of Werribee.

It is like a marijuana supermarket.

It’s a buy, swap and sell market.

And it’s on Facebook

For heaven’s sake.




It is described as “a group for people in the Werribee and surrounds area to sell some unwanted items … so come find bargains.”

Now it is a private site; invitation only.

But we have checked it out and the drug dealer works under the name ‘Rick Kush Dispenser’ – no doubt not the real name.

There’s a couple of points here:

1: Facebook - Get your act together. Close it. Although I don’t trust Facebook given what they have tolerated in the past.

2: If this continues, this makes cannabis easier to buy than alcohol.

Police need to jump onto it. Now.

  • On Neils show today it was mentioned that 5 people had been put in intensive care this week using the fake synthetic cannaboids sold legally in various shops and it hasnt been around long but the numbers of hospitalisations is pretty high. Yet they still havent killed a mouse using pot.

  • Can't we see what is going wrong? Kids at risk, war with Indonesia, CRIMINALS selling drugs. All online. To think the idiots in Canberra want to build more internet with billions of dollars wasted NBN. What do they think will happen? Its time to pull the plug and get back to basic. No to drugs, no to broadband.

  • And we're not conserved about weekly specials on alcohol and bulk buying prices which almost encourage the drinking and buying more alcohol?
    You know. With all this bad talk about pot, I haven't seen many negative papers on the stuff... Alcohol, on the other hand.
    So what's the real deal here?

  • This is so fake it made me laugh. It's worded like a spam email for heavens sake! A drug dealer would not advertise his (or hers) product on facebook, let alone location. And as for the pictures, you can download them through a simple search, and the facebook page? I could create one JUST like it with pictures of a class A drug. Would you add me to the online drug ring?

  • I cannot stand seeing our Police officers being made to act like garden nazis searching for a bit of (naughty) vegetation in someones yard or pocket.

    The real crime is that this stuff is not legalized and taxed. Let our police force work on real crime please.
