    Wonder how many hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer dollars are needed to support salaries, benefits and supplies for the “Asheville Police Department Drug Suppression Unit” to make marijuana busts?

    Not a fan of drugs. Just someone who has watched this country fight this losing battle for 50+ years. Time for a reality check.

    What a waste of tax dollars by our government. I do NOT use drugs, just a clarification, but what a terrible focus for our legal system…..js
