    if we put these scumbags in front of a firing squad, it would make a HUGE statement. Why slap them on the hand, let them bail out of jail just to go back and do it again. If the system REALLY wants to control the drug problem, then DO SOMETHING to solve it. Get rid of the runners and suppliers. The next person might think twice.
