    Would like to have some coca plants as they are legally grown in South America. They use it like we drink tea- without harm. Yet, cocaine is one tough momma. Kicking a cocaine addiction is rough. Some aren't able to do so.

    Guess it's going to be a drought. Someone asked who buys this stuff. Who has money,90% of crack customers are white. Surprises you don't it,you better open you eyes and get off your high horse. The buyer may be one of your kids.

    And so the racial slurring begins. Why does it matter if they are legal or not? 5 drug dealers are off the streets. We do have American drug dealers too. I am just glad that these PEOPLE were caught regardless of race.

    They need to check the people who owns the boats and the planes. I wonder who they are?

    If they stop the illegals from coming in, the Dems lose a good chunk of their supporters

    This bust pales in comparison to the one that was made in Charlotte. Over 3,500 Lbs. of pot in one house and $2,000,000 in cash in another. Five arrested, 3 of those ILLEGAL MEXICANS.
