Quotes

"Those Syrians and Palestinians enter Egypt with tourist visas, then attempt to get smuggled to Italy" he said
"More than raising revenues for the government, the aggressive disposition of forfeited goods has also helped decongest the Manila International Container Terminal and sent a strong message to our stakeholders that we are committed to implementing customs laws and policies to the letter" said BOC-MICP District Collector ElmirDela Cruz
"Forced eradication is an exercise in futility," Tree said. "There simply too much poverty, demand, and ungoverned territory on this planet. Combine that with the astronomical 'price support' offered by drug prohibition and we've accomplished what the alchemists couldn't do: We turned minimally processed agricultural commodities into gold. Cocaine should cost pennies per dose, but the risk premium created by our ever escalating drug war gives us the modern alchemy."
"All of us share in the responsibility of addressing this in the community and making sure our young people are well educated. That there's programming available for those who might be addicted" said Yohey
