    wait a sec. he was selling pain killers right. where did he get them? is the pharmacy being charged for selling them too? is the prescribing doctor being charged with trafficking too? both those entities are equally involved in the problem. time for the responsible ones (read medical community) to take some responsibility for this problem too. if the doc doesn't prescribe so many painkillers, less are stolen in break-ins, less are sold in the street. oh yeah and the doc gets less trips to the bahamas courtesy of the drug companies.

    When are we going to stop wasting money on throwing people in prison who don't even commit a crime against anyone. A voluntary exchange between adults is no one's business but their own!
