Word around town is this guy was one of the bigger weed dealers on the south side. Wouldn’t be surprised if its a drug related murder. Most of the news reports seem to just say “he had a lot of visitors.”

Oh come on. He was 71. You never find old people involved in that sort of thing.

Not sure if you are being serious but they are usually the best type of dealer because you can have a nice cuppa as well.

I totally agree, I haven’t scored off a young person since I left college, too unreliable with too much ego.
