The buyer. Speaking as one who's been the buyer before.

What happens when the government is the one funding the synthesis of the drug, and testing it on U.S. soldiers? That's how lysergic acid diethylamine got started.

I don't think it's all of the government and CIA that is involved in drug smuggling the way some seem to think. If that were the case then dealers like Ricky Ross and Rayful Edmond wouldn't even be locked up. Instead I view it as being rouge elements within the gov't and CIA that are involved in this. These are the ones that have to be rooted out.

Does this girl look Liberal to you?


YouTube - Blondie Heart of glass HD

I don't know if she enabled me - but she done something!

Probably did do something Liberal to me.

I guess it wasn't my fault.
