A drug user who was conned as he was sold flour instead of cocaine reported the fraud to a police officer in Peru.
According to a video shared online, the dealer deceived the buyer by handing over a plastic baggy filled with what was supposed to be cocaine but when the man tried to snort it, he noticed it was flour.
Disappointed, he saw a police officer on a routine patrol shift and he approached him to report his failure to purchase cocaine.
“I am from La Porra, I came to get my drugs, boss,” the addict told the cop in a video shared online.
“And I want to file a report because they’ve given me flour, boss.”
The drug abuser begged the cop to help him get his supply of cocaine and the cop broke out laughing.
He told the officer: “Help me out with that, boss, because one comes here to get his drugs and they give you flour.”
According to Article 299 of the Peruvian Penal Code, it is legal in the South American country to possess up to two grams of cocaine or at least five grams of coca paste for personal use.
Planting coca plants – which is the the material used for making cocaine – is legal in Peru and coca leaves are sold in markets.
