I bet they will walk, somehow. This state or county does nothing to these scumbags. I say they should be made to ingest half each on the spot. Video for future Dare programs. This is what happens. Love it. Die scum. Had enough.

It's very sad to think that 2 adults have fallen into such a pathetic state. 2 humans who were children that played hopscotch and various games now look like this. Did they really think that this is what they wanted to be?! How very sad that 2 babies that were cuddled and hugged have evolved into the horror and clutches of addiction....and it continues day after day after day. Lock them up to keep them from destroying other human beings.
