Don’t believe anyone who tries to tell you that the drug game isn’t an industry. It’s no secret that drugs are big business, and now more heroin mills are operating like factories in an effort to appeal to clients with deeper pockets.

According to The Associated Press, one New Jersey heroin mill was run out of a simple, red-brick home. In addition to their other obvious responsibilities, dealers were in charge of trimming the shrubs; the operation didn't cause any disturbances in the neighborhood. Nothing good can come of bringing unnecessary attention to the illegal activity going on in the quaint little trap house.

Aside from the risks that come with participating in the drug game, some of these employees are well-taken care of. Sure, the hours might be long, but workers have the opportunity to make up to $5,000 per week, they get free meals and toiletries, and the bosses were even kind enough to install ventilation systems with respirators for each employee so they don’t get dusted at work. The bosses realize that happy (and healthy) workers are good workers.

Still curious as to whether or not you’ve made the right career choice? Well, despite its low profile, that heroin mill in New Jersey was recently busted. The game is the game, and nobody lasts forever. Still, at this rate, it’s only a matter of time before smack house workers are reciting company credos and participating in lame-ass kickball games.
