  1. If he was selling this crap, hang him! If he needed to make money, there is still plenty of jobs out there. Selling drugs is the easy way out of working regardless of who the drugs might kill.

    • cocaine requires several chemicals and gasoline in its making. Its not like this is food or something healthy for you. On top of that its been illegal for the longest time, you make the choice to sell it/use it then take the consequences like an adult.
