Photo blog documents Philly’s discarded drug paraphernalia

    They’re blue and green and clear and purple, printed with dinosaurs, dice and more.

    They’re Philadelphia’s discarded crack bags, and they’re being documented on a Tumblr account that City Paper drew our attention to.


    “Crack Bags of Philly” is a photo blog full of empty drug bags. A few of the photos were shot in Center City, but most are concentrated around Fishtown and Northern Liberties — green and white bunnies at Front and Girard, bright blue at Third and Poplar and a blue Superman logo at Second and Girard.
