    Funny. All deadbeat Think wanted to talk about on the thread under CFK’s arrest was drugs-related arrests in the Falklands and on this thread about drugs-related arrests in the Falklands I can’t find him anywhere amongst all these posters scrambling for their say. I guess he was simply trying to divert people from his corrupt former First Lady.

    I say, throw the book at them all, make sure to go as high up the supply chain as possible, if the drugs came in on a fishing boat, ban it for life, even if it it’s a local company. What surprises me most about this is the number of people saying it’s about time these people got caught. Trust me, if I had evidence or even rumours of drugs peddlers/ pushers or users I would report what I had to the police.
