A couple of years ago I remember coming across a cool little blog created by a drug user going by the moniker Dequincy Jynxie.
Her blog was a roaring success among the drug community ( Jynxies Natural Habitat ) which chronicled the various baggies you get when you buy a bag of gear stateside, even getting the attention of various national and international online magazine style websites, us included :).
Theres nothing special about the artwork but I found it quite amusing that drugs come with their own branding, Not something your average Irish class A dealer would ever consider doing but admittedly it is very enterprising and pretty impressive.. street corner hustling and marketing at its finest.
Sadly Jynxie (Shelby Hughes, 33), and her fiance Thanat0s (Bryan VanAssch, 34) died in what was described by the police described as a homicide.
Both were found in a burned out house in Midwest City, Oklahoma, drugs were not believed to have contributed to their death nor the fire but its clear from speculation around some of the various drug forums that the fire was a means to an end to cover up their murder.
Its an awful end for anyone, a life of addiction rarely comes with a happy outcome but to end up with a vicious death is horrific, one thing is for sure she will be missed and her legacy has been carried on via her website where users still submit their reviews of smack they buy as well as the branded bags it comes in. Here is a couple of examples of what users post:
New Bugatti! Originally i posted the green Bugatti six months ago which was just the logo . Now it came out in red with the logo(spelled correctly) and with it printed (incorrectly in capitals) under it. Instead of Bugatti it is spelled Bagatti. I think the misspelling is to deliberate to be a mistake and is a play on words maybe meaning bad addict , bag atti, bag addi, bag addict but who knows it might be a typo but I would find it odd to have a correct and incorrect spelling of the same word on the SAmestamp lmao . Like green Bugatti it is a very good stamp. The knockoff bag ain’t too shabby. R8.5 L7 C8
