Usual story - some poor streetseller caught and big hullabaloo. Has the Drug Enforcers caught a single big drug baron the last two years ? Without stopping the main source, these puny actions are useless.

I wonder why the religious leaders who make big statements and lead protest in the streets leading to violence, don't make any effort to bring moral values to the Buddhist Nation!
