Things They Should Invent: illegal drug weight to dosage converter

Suppose I'm reading a newspaper article, and it mentions two ounces of cocaine. I have no idea how much that is. Like I know what two ounces is, but I have no idea how many doses of cocaine that is. Is it one dose or one hundred doses? Sometimes you need to know this to properly understand the article.

I want an easily googleable website that will do this for me. Actually, I want Google Calculator to do this, but I don't think they'd go for it.

This would greatly reduce the fun of illegal drugs. Much of the point of recreational drugging is that there is no specified dose, you make up your dose, and are often trying to top your own limit.

Not that I've done that in a decade or so, but I still remember how.

Nah, users would take it exactly as seriously as the suggested serving size of 12 potato chips.
