Spanish term or phrase: "Quietos, paqueros de mxx"
Hi, folks. I'm working on a movie about human trafficking, drugs and many social issues.
The phrase I quoted belongs to a scene where some dealers enter the house where others make "Paco", a cheap and harmful drug made from cocaine. (the word I didn't write is a curse word, but I don't need help to translate it).
Is there a translation for "Paquero", the one who manufactures Paco?
How would you translate it?

Hola Mercedes

Me imagino que la película está hecha en mejico. El paco es como se le llama ala pasta base de la cocaína. Es una droga de bajo costo similar al crack elaborada con residuos de cocaína y procesada con ácido sulfúrico y queroseno. A veces suele mezclarse con cloroformo, éter o carbonato de potasio, entre otras cosas.

Pues bien, a parte de paco también se le llama basuco como puedes ver en el articulo de wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocaine_paste.

Parece más ingles y creo que podría ser una buena traducción.


Pues bien, el término que se utiliza

Notes to answerer
Asker: Gracias Manuel! La peli es argentina, pero quise cerrar la pregunta (creo que no lo logré) por que me equivoqué. No eran fabricantes sino dealers, con lo cual se simplifica la cosa. Igualmente tomo tu aporte para otra vez. Gracias!
