    Daily detections of drugs being transported within the country are being reported!Isn't the Police smart enough to trace the source of supply of these drugs and take effective action to stop it.?

    They will never catch the top as they are in cahoots. This are lower down street sellers who are dispensable and caught to show they are doing a great job to fool us.
