I seriously doubt 1 in 17 people at guvernment have enough drugs on them to be considered traffickers.

Trafficking is not about how much, or how many substances you have on you, it's about passing substances from one person to another.

True, considerations for charges or senteces are made with regard to "amounts for personal use", how the substances are packaged, and other factors like cash or IOU's...

BUT...

Increasingly we are seeing a criminal justice approach getting tougher with people who consume substances in Canada. More people are getting charged more easily and receiving tougher sentences.

Grabbing a couple extra pills for your friends is likely to get you into more problems these days than perhaps in the past.

Props to Stephen.

the cops did say that they released a number of people during processing who had amounts considered 'personal use' .. i.e. they weren't interested in them. i.e. if you had one or two pills or a dimebag or something, they prolly confiscated it and sent them on their way.

Where did you see/hear this?

That's not what I was told by Detective Sergeant Ed Roseto and another officer from 14 Division when I asked them face to face at the press conference.

technically, it was 180 people, 33 charged = 18.4% not 22%

You're ignoring the fact that there were tons of drugs all over the floors when all was said and done. There's no telling how many were able to get their pockets empty in time, but since the reports say that the floors and tables were covered in drugs, it's fair to assume that a lot of people were able to ditch their stash, making the real % of possession much higher than the 18.4% who were the unlucky ones that got caught.

I have just had an extensive conversation with a staffer at councillor Vaughn's office-

she informs me that they have as of yet received no complaints about this warrant or its execution- and have only heard support from the local residents association- who no doubt have only read the media reports of the 'drug flea market'

I think that people need to call in to express their concern-

also she suggests that those who have been involved directly will receive more results and so those who have been abused in this raid should contact-

After the raid, there were drugs ALL OVER THE FLOORS AND ON THE TABLES which means that a good chunk of the 117 people got rid of their stashes in time.

And I bet you believe there were tables set up like a flea market right?

I have some swamp land in Florida you may be interested in.

. 1 in 17 people got booked with with dealing. I seriously doubt 1 in 17 people at guvernment have enough drugs on them to be considered traffickers.

No, I don't believe that all. I do believe that the drugs "conveniently laid out on the table like a flea market swap meet" are either peoples ditched stashes or some undercover police officers overactive imagination when pleading a case for a warrant.

Ultimately, the argument breaks down to which of the 2 clubs do you feel has more drug use per capita, the guv or cozo. Forget about sheer volumes of people. And no matter which way you look at it, $35,000 or $20,000 or $10,000 in drugs confiscated is quite a bit for 180 total people in the club. And I'm in the wrong fucking business if that $30,000 in cash confiscated was all door money from the cover of 150 people (not including staff).

so? those were all small bags or various drugs, i.e. things that were tossed by users. arresting users makes not a lick of difference in "fighting drugs". if they really wanted to do something to stop or even limit the amount of drugs in the city they'd be going after organized crime - but those people pay them so they're not going to do that.
