A "deck" is a small envelop.- or folded paper contaitilng from on>- 10 IhroO ? "BiiiffB" and sold for from 10 ccnts to ? t-rnts.

Trada Has Its Own Jargon. Among the "dope flend*" the cocaine is ealled "coke," "Junk" and "white stuff." and the street mercimnta who bay it from the drug stoie li- adu.uart.rs of the trade get itln small one-iighth of an enaee botties.
