    These people are only low level dealers trying to support there own habit. The police and attorney general should not be wasting there time and tax dollars on chasing addicts. If they really wanted to do some good they would instead arresting these people and sending them to jail. They should be treated for there problems. And chase the major dealers: if they want to win the ” war on drugs” they should start with treating addicts for there disease. Instead of filling our prison system with non-violent low level offenders who could be productive members of society.
