    Their machines were legal! They will get it all back after they go to court! The only people that were ripped off are the people that were there the day of the raid and the one not profiting now because of it! Only adults are allowed to play and believe me, they're not forced! As for drugs found, it was a small glass pipe that pot had been smoked out of! We're not talking about cocaine or crack or any large quantity of a controlled substance! The business has been there a few years, quite a long time for an illegal business that judges ride past every day to stay in business, huh?!

    They're toast, flaunting it right under the public's eye on Henderson Drive where the judges drive by each day. This was important; look at the drugs that were found and how this place ripped off Hispanic persons.
