    Let's see a street value of $94,000 compares to keeping each person in prison for 1 year at the average of about $60,000 give or take a few.

    7 x 60,000 = 420,000.

    To keep 94,000 worth of drugs off the streets, most all of which was probably going to be used by people in the privacy of their own home we spend probably well over 1/2 million when you factor in the cost of the police time, court time Etc.,

    I think the war on drugs is a crime being committed on the people of this nation.

    It's be far cheaper to send them all to college to get doctorates as punishment than it is to send them to prison. How pathetic.

    Terrific work by KPD, great coverage by KDH. Hopefully this bust makes an impact on the overall drug situation in the greater area.
