One kilogram is equal to 1000 grams. The misconception that there are 1008 grams in a kilogram stems from estimation in the conversion process. 36 ounces is commonly used as a rough equivalent of a kilogram, and 3.5 grams is commonly used as a rough equivalent of 1/8 ounce.

"An eighth" (1/8 ounce) is a common unit used in buying and selling drugs. 1/8 ounce is equivalent to ≈3.54369, but digital scales rarely display decimals more precise than tenths, so an eighth ounce is treated as equivalent to 3.5 grams.

(3.5*8)*36=1008.
