Very interesting show on Netflix called Dope. Each episode deals with a particular drug; the people who make, traffic, deal, use and battle each particular drug. A real eye opener.

At least the CC is trying and not standing down. Four years ago they didn't have the funds for routine patrols. Personally I think kick backs play a major role in drug bust or the lack thereof.

How about using drone in the sky to watch where they are going and then capture and arrest at the destination they arrived at. Might be able to get the ones importing it.

Ocean is a big place..including just a few miles offshore..really easy to lose track of a small vessel even with a drone.

Heroin and meth is a huge problem around my area. I've never seen people on straight cocaine act like people do on that other junk. I think that's the devil. It runts so many lives and families. 💔 I personally don't think I'm any better than anybody else. We all have problems maybe not drugs but everybody struggles with something....

I apologize to those who might be related to a user or addict first but 365 days free Fentanyl world wide would most likely clear up the drug problem.

The first lowest form of life is a child molester, the second is a drug dealer. They should both be publicly shot.
