Great job! After the Iraq war ended out of the blue heroin made comeback. If you can read between the lines. 'When American soldiers came from over in Iraq ,so did the comeback.'

I want to know how they can

I want to know how they can only arrest 3 dealers, you see them all over the place in Augusta, especially in the low-income areas. I could find at least 20 all by myself in just a few hours without exerting myself.

The drug trade is all about supply and demand. An addict has a drug of choice but will take what they can get. When one drug is cheaper and easier to get, that's what they'll take.

It has nothing to do with soldiers and all about addicts who will put any kind of poison in their bodies to get high. It's sad.
