    We never get pictures of the so call smugglers , the criminals out to make addicts out of our precious youth .this picture does not help anyone ..does not deter the criminal who left the parcel to be collected by someone , maybe someone working at the AIRPORT or some one as a visitor .Naming and shaming would help otherwise people will think its an inside job .
