Many journalists, myself included, are too scared to ask. We know what they’re doing here, but we’d rather not get involved. While this may ensure our safety and continued work in the neighbourhood, however, it leaves a hole in the story—one that Matt Chambers, editor-in-chief of the online magazine The Dependent, has set out to fill. Chambers had the chutzpah, or perhaps lack of sanity, to work his way into the trust of some neighbourhood dealers and turned it into a four-part feature series that attempts to answer who are these people, how does the street-level drug trade work, and why don’t they get caught? The second feature went up today, but it’s important to start at the very beginning (a very good place to start).
