    The real shitty thing is the cops are sitting back feeling like they accomplished something and citizens are acting like it matters too. its a lb possessed by an old man. you really think its the only lb laying around ready to destroy and corrupt? youre a dummy. that didnt even make a dent in this towns epidemic. maybe a lb an hr for a day or two might make a dent. i dont see whats so hard about solving the meth thing. it is pretty damn obvious who smokes that shit. just put an open season on them and let us hunt them already. sick of this meth addicts are victijms of addiction bullshit. they have had decades of examples why its not good and they dont care about anything or anyone they still do it. they all deserve to be put down like rabid dogs.

    The old hide it in a storage locker and they’ll never catch me gambit. In the age of GPS tracking through the smart phones criminals don’t stand a chance.
