If you notice people being a little more edgy than usual...

Perhaps you have found that around the district tempers have gotten a little shorter. Well the reason may be the recent surge in Cocaine prices. The Washington Post reports that dealers are cutting cocaine quite a bit, and the national price of cocaine has risen 44% from January to September.

It's getting harder and harder to find the drug,

On a recent weeknight patrol, Officer Alvin Lytel was hunting for drug activity in Southeast Washington. He drove to 30th and Hartford streets, a spot normally filled with small-time dealers who shoot dice while they wait for cars with Maryland and Virginia license plates to drive up from nearby Southern Avenue to buy crack.

"These streets are empty out here," Lytel said, patrolling four spots in an hour before he found one with activity.

One must wonder what this is going to do to the legislative efficiency of our capitol.
