as the single person whom they had a body warrant for in the cherry hill area of the bust that didn't get picked up that morning I can honestly say that the "facts" here are seriously skewed to make this seem a lot worse than it was.
none of those people involved that I knew including jamie were 'drug addicts'. they all had jobs, paid their bills, paid their taxes, took care of their families, and weren't the type of people who ever bothered anyone. they were simply people who enjoyed smoking a joint or eating a few mushrooms instead of getting drunk and destroying their livers.
I hope lee solomon & co. are proud that they ruined the lives of a bunch of good people who's only real crime was partaking in substances that were deemed illegal by antiquated laws based on a series of propaganda smear films in the 1930's.
this was NO drug ring, it was a bunch of normal people who shared similar interests and pooled their money to buy pot, hash and mushrooms in bulk to save a lot of money. anything sold to high-school students was the product of one of the local neighborhood buyers who bought in bulk, split up their purchase into smaller quantities and re-sold to whoever they could.
it's been about 14 years now, what did you guys accomplish? nothing. do you think all those people stopped smoking pot? nope. is the world a better place now? NO. congratulations on accomplishing NOTHING. you should be commended for getting the real dangerous stuff off the street, maybe one day you'll be able to make a dent in the ADDICTIVE stuff.
