I guess these two will

I guess these two will continue to be caught, booked and released to do it all over again. Not their first rodeo.

We're surprised by this?

Just quit enforcing it. Prices will plummet, the addicts will gork themselves into oblivion, and the dealers will give up because they can't profit from selling it anymore. The addicts will always find something to keep them high, you can't change that.

You would know right, I bet you aint got a clue about addiction do you? That means your comment has no wieght and you should keep it to your self.
