    One day people will look back at all the money we have spent on "The War on Drugs" and will be amazed at how ignorant we have been.

    i'm curious as to why they wait over 3 years to bust someone. i mean think about it. them drugs could have been taken off the streets long ago and possibly avoided a small part of violence and death in the area. i'm glad they busted these idiots but why wait?

    I would think if they acted at least three years ago that would have helped clean up the streets a lot sooner.Sounds like they want the money more than anything else.92K is what they said but it may(or may not) have been close to a million.
