    I hope they got the guy that’s always cruising the Front Street bars plying his trade. His pants low around his backside looking like some derelict. Having said that, the war on drugs is a failed venture. Govt might as well as legalize as much as they can and regulate it all like they do tobacco and alcohol. Turn our debt around. Doubtful that it will happen.

    Wow!!! So Bermuda must have hundreds of high functioning addicts, for the drug trade to be so lucrative on such a small island. Willing to bet that international business has a share in the addicted population or “recreational” opioid and marijuana usage. The ones we see walking about town certainly don’t have the bankroll to make them boys rich….

      Yeah hence why I said the war on drugs has been a complete and utter failure. But let’s get it right and not brand brush it….drug users come from all walks of life; from your plumber to your insurance broker to the guy next to you at Sunday service.
