Don’t laugh. That’s what the headline says.
Apparently drugs are transported on the interstates (along with just about every other avenue you can imagine).
Since 1993, officers in Saline and Dickinson counties have poured “significant” resources into the task force, said Salina Police Chief Jim Hill, and recovered thousands of pounds in drugs and nearly $500,000 in cash.
It marks an important step into stopping what Hill believes is one of the most lucrative and overlooked markets in drug trafficking. [emphasis added]
Hmm… what that last sentence should read:
It marks an important step into beginning what Hill believes is one of the most lucrative and overlooked markets in drug enforcement.
Just about every place in this country is the crossroads or the hub or the terminus or some such B.S. whenever there’s a budget or seizure buck to be made by drug enforcement.
