    Wow only one comment. If most of these folks had of come out of Durham there would have been hundreds of comments about how bad the city of medicine is. But since it was Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Hillsborough not a peep from anyone. HIPPO CRITICS!

    Dear City of Chapel Hill,

    To deny the central population (20 to 50) their medicine and relief by arrest of their distribution network the youth of your town is a crime of the government! Revolt & Revolution! Did you not just witness Egypt & Tunisia ! Silly Police State keep your sticks in your pants!
