Exceptionally well written with a subject matter so many of us encounter or have a predisposed opinion of, without having actually experienced it first-hand, nor attempted to grasp an opinion outside that of usual public perception. And this is coming from a guy who never did drugs (well, a little pot), but spent a lot of time living in the community.Indeed, there is no doubt that some of those involved in the drug trade are vicious bullies and would be whatever the case, after all a bully is a bully, no matter what walk of life he or she is found.
