WHAT!!! YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WASTED TAX DOLLARS! WHO CARES IF HE HAD DRUGS! THIS COUNTRY HAS JUMPED THROUGH ITS POOP-CHUTE TO ENSURE THAT NONE OF ITS CITIZENS HAVE TO OWN UP TO OR ACCEPT ANY PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. IF YOU WANT TO DO DRUGS GO AHEAD, IF YOU CANT HANDLE THEM AND YOU THROW YOUR OWN LIFE AWAY THAT IS YOUR OWN PROBLEM! EVERYBODY NEEDS TO WAKE UP AND TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN LIFE. BUT NOOOO....NOW MY TAX DOLLARS WILL BE WASTED SUPPORTING THIS GUY IN PRISON FOR LIFE! GOOD JOB IDIOTS, YOUR LITTLE DRUG BUST (WHICH WON'T EVEN PUT A MINOR DENT INTO THE DRUG TRADE) JUST COST THE TAX PAYERS A MINIMUM OF $80,000 PER YEAR TO INCARCERATE THIS GUY...SMART...INTELLIGENCE HAS NEVER BEEN A PART OF NEVADA CULTURE OR UNITED STRAIGHTS OF SHEEP-ERICA'S CULTURE!
