Law (general) / law enforcement
English term or phrase: almonds
"...the defendant said give me three, he handed me three five dollar bills, and I handed him three almonds..."
The "almonds" are used by undercover officers in place of rock cocaine in a "controled buy" transaction. They resemble the real thing but they are not. Anybody knows the spanish version of this term, posibly a mejicanismo.
