    Might be wise to end the practice of depicting wads of money associated with drug busts. There are those who see only enticement. Just sayin’.

    My only objection to this story is that it is kind of lazy. It feels like a retelling of the police account. Last time I checked, sandwich bags are not illegal and neither is cash. The police may be correct in their assessment but just regurgitating what they tell you is propaganda at best. I’d like to see a story on the epidemic of drugs in Kingston, who and what might be behind it, and the human cost associated with a police only approach to dealing with the crisis.
