Rose Sellers Arrested. 114 of Them.

Who knows why?!? The report doesn't say. Apparently giving roses on New Year's Eve is a bad thing though. I don't think it can be blamed on "Westerners." I've never heard of the tradition, if it is one, of giving red roses on New Year's Eve. 114 rose sellers were arrested. Must have been a pretty busy night! I'm sure we will all feel much safer, now, with the rose seller's off the streets...

This guy is in deep poo-poo. Not for lack of creativity, though. Wonder what kind of money he could expect to make by selling 3,555 bottles... The mark up is pretty steep, here. No. Correction. Very steep.

It amazes me that with such hefty penalties and punishments that people continue to try to smuggle drugs into The Sandbox. In a country where the "welcome" sign says, "Drug smugglers will be executed" it just doesn't seem like it would be worth the risk. Apparently it is, though. There must be a demand...
