There has been a lot of talk on a shortage of cash money circulation and stores only taking debit/credit cards. Does this mean that drug dealers on the street are now accepting cards as payment? Asking for a friend.......

its not a cash shortage but an ALLEGED coin shortage. they are blaming the coin shortage on the pandemic. i believe its a first step to see if they can get us into a cashless society. i am now refusing to use a card, cash only. if we go to a cashless society, millions will be out of jobs.

I don't know how drug dealers are conducting their transactions at this time. On the other hand, if you're looking to purchase a firearm of some sort I could introduce you to my own favorite dealer Tookie (of no fixed address). I recently made a purchase out of his custom van and he told me that he still accepts cash, credit cards, debit cards, food stamps, and high dollar consumer goods still in their original packaging.

I am surprised that coins lasted as long as they have. They are heavy in bulk making it very expensive to transport.
I worked in freight so I got to offload and ship bags of coins to military stations.
They were heavy as heck.

I was stationed in the Pacific back in the mid to late 90's and the base exchange eliminated pennies for that very reason. Prices were rounded to the nearest nickel. (probably rounded up).

nothing beats loading and unloading a hundred plus bags of loose coin and stacking it on pallets. Bestworkouts ever. So much easier though to load bricks of boxed coin, even they get heavy though after awhile.

A friend of mine works for an armored car service that picks up money from some of the casinos in New Jersey. As a younger man he said the work of picking up the coins was back breaking, but as a middle aged man who now works in the counting room he's very happy with his job. Heavy lifting is done by machinery and all he has to do now is pick out slugs and other foreign objects. Also, when he goes to work he fills his pocket with modern clad coins so he can swap them for any silver coins he spots during the day. The company doesn't care, all that concerns them is that the count is correct, and my friend won't say how much extra he makes doing that but you couldn't pry him out of that job with a crow bar.😁
