How to sell my self-released album locally

So, I recently burned my EP onto some CDs, and I was wondering how to go about distributing it. My friend says he'll sell some at school for me, but I'm worried that a teacher will catch him and confiscate all these copies I burnt. Are there any other musicians out there who have experience releasing music on their own?

I don't have a credit card or anything like that. I'm looking to sell physical copies.

You ought to have at least 30,000 on backup in case of increased demand.

Have you looked into selling them on Amazon.com or other similar sites as mp3s?

(You can also roll a fake joint with oregano and tape it on the CD case. When people buy it for the joint you get paid since oregano is cheap if you get it in the Latino food aisles. If a cop busts you simply tell then you are trying to help people find a safe and legal alternative to drugs.)

I cannot make 30k copies, and I'm not looking to use any service I have to pay for. I'm literally burning each copy myself on CD-Rs bought from Walmart.

well if there just CD-Rs just tell your teacher they're school-related files (powerpoint projects, for example) and that your only getting money because you dropped it on the ground or something

the 30k thing is really only funny as a retrospective concept

like, if you go back and read that thread it actually mostly just consists of people lamely trying to give him earnest advice, or calling him dumb in the most straightforward and unfunny way possible
