    Since drug dealing is an all cash business, it makes me wonder if either or both of these guys is living on public assistance (welfare, food stamps, etch..). Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the taxpayer is paying for thei chemistry labs.

    Sentence them to life in Colorado. They will fit in nicely.

    Not to nitpick, but “The search netted 4.6 grams of heroin….a street value of about $8,800 in cash.

    …54.6 grams of heroin … a street value of approximately $11,000.”

    So some heroin is $1,913 per gram and other heroin is $201 per gram?
