    I fully expect to see this more and more with the marijuana law changes; but shows you the bold and utter disregard for the consequences drug addicts and drug dealers have. Very happy to hear that law enforcement was on the lookout and if only the courts start dishing out heavier penalties for the dealers, we could take a bite out of the distribution that right now seems so easy to do. If you know an addict or are one, it is important to get help so you are not being manipulated by these people wanting your money.

    It is great to hear that this heroin dealer is off the streets, but what about the idea of the police keeping him under surveillance to find out where HE purchased those 20 bags of heroin, to get to the bigger suppliers. This makes more sense in helping heroin addicts
