    All drug dealers think that its easy money, and they will never get caught. Instead of working a job with benefits, the only benefits they will get is three meals and a cot, and maybe bubba. And by the looks of them, probably bubba. Oh, one more benefit, free room and board payed for by tax paying citizens.
