    It’s nice to see some local talent distributing drugs for a change rather than relying on the thugs from Baltimore making all the available cash. Our local drug economy is improving.

        I stand corrected. It seems our local druggies are to lazy (high) to get out and sell.

    I completely agree that being involved with drugs is stupid. But it doesn’t seem very intelligent to misspell your negative opinions either. You make fun of people from the metropolitan area. All the while, you are really making a joke out of yourselves. Readers would take your comments and ideas much more seriously if you spelled your posts correctly. At least you didn’t feel the need to use racial slurs again this time.
