    These small time peddlers will spend a few months as state guests while their families will be well looked after by their God Fathers who have ascended to high positions with the help of drug money.

    These culprid will be out after paying the bail money and the respective police station - cops knows who deals with drugs, and they are paid the monthly wage by the drug dealers. This was not the first time and this will continue for sure, until the corrupted cops are kicked out.

    The culprits should be hanged when found guilty. This is worse than murder. They are destroying the Youth of this country because of personal greed.

    Good job. But at the same time the school children should be informed and advised to say no to drugs. There wont be any givers if there are no takers. Also the parents should take a role to help out the situation.

    I propose that not only sellers, buyers also should be prosecuted. Because, without buyers there are no sellers!!

    MUST BE MIND ALTERING DRUGS LIKE FANTASY ECSTASY SPEED HEROIN CRACK COCAINE LSD, CANNABIS AND METHAMPHETAMINES .
    UNLIKELY TO BE VITAMINS OR FISH LIVER OIL TABLETS TO IMPROVE THEIR BRAIN POWER AND MEMORY.
    WHALES AND SHARKS OF THE DRUG TRADE SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE NOT SPRATS.
