This is prime country for that sort of thing. The parking lot behind the Chinese Restaurant and surrounding area.......Ballard and Emmett area.

I'm surprised this is rare enough to be newsworthy. There seems to be plenty of customers.

I thought crack is old fashion, was just a fad that died off in the 1990's. Was junk then and sure it still is today, what a waste.
