Pablo’s Place: We Keep that White Girl

The Opportunity

Each year, more than $500 billion changes hands in the global business of narcotics. It is one of the most sophisticated industries on the face on the planet and brings together a diverse range of individuals and groups for one purpose: to make significant amounts of money.

There is a market for narcotics for a simple reason: the world is a tough place and people just want to get high. Yet, for the most part, there is no major online hub that serves the needs of those who use narcotics and those who deal in narcotics. Pablo’s Place will change that by providing the first comprehensive Internet portal for narcotics. In doing so, it will cement its place in one of the most lucrative businesses known to man.

The Service

Pablo’s Place will be the Yahoo of the drug world. It will serve as the primary online destination for consumers and dealers, providing them with a new set of triple Cs: content, community and commerce.

Management Team

Pablo’s Place is led by an experienced group of industry veterans. Further details are available to qualified parties.

Business Model

Pablo’s Place leverages a robust hybrid advertising model to tap into the $500 billion/year narcotics industry. Depending on the type of advertising being done, advertising will be sold under CPC, CPM, CPA and per-listing pricing structures.

Marketing Strategy

Pablo’s Place will spend no more than $10,000 on marketing as the service does not need to be marketed. In the words of Chris Rock: “drugs sell themselves.”

Exit Strategies


Pablo’s Place seeks $12 million in funding for development, staffing, security and “quality assurance.”

    It’s sad when I realize that I recognize every single graphic you used in there. What’s the anti-KoolAid? I think I need some.
