Wonder what they were doing at the Wawa that caused the call to police? Were they shooting up in the parking lot? These fools are their own worst enemies.

People want to make this stuff legal too. Just what we need, another level of impaired drivers.

This is so outta control, everywhere. The penalties are not severe enough. So it will continue to only get worse.
