First off, if what police claim in this case is true, this young man is a brilliant entrepreneur who should be celebrated. Second, if police consider finding a high school student who amassed a measly $6,000 in cash a drug "kingpin," they're a complete laughingstock joke.
Via ABC News: Ohio High School Kingpin Arrested in Major Drug Bust:
Ohio police have arrested an alleged drug kingpin, a 17-year-old accused of running a multimillion dollar ring that distributed high-grade marijuana through two school districts and netted $20,000 a month.The story goes on to detail how the student narced on his suppliers, six other adults were arrested and police allegedly found three grow houses where 600 plants were seized "with an estimated street value of $3 million."
Such "street value estimates" are always comically overinflated, regardless what we know for sure is the price of pot in the area is going to be higher as a result of this bust and that will create even more incentive for others to traffic in the harmless plant.
