  1. Our entire country gets a bad rap every time there is a drug bust . Everyone wants a big house , fancy cars . Drugs is not the answer. Its just a temporary factor. Every passenger becomes a suspect because of these mules. Why dont they get a license and try exporting Fish, Dry Shrimps, fine thyme, etc. Food that will actually help people and not hurt people.
