This is so good for the country. people who has are guilty must be punished for sure. Lupus Symptoms. This is only the way to lower down the percentage of people being addicted to such things.

I am so glad to hear that so many criminals get behind bars! A drug treatment program in Sacramento would really do them well. And they should see old pictures with themselves drugged to realize the harm they used to do - to themselves and to the others.
