    Congrats on finding low level drug dealers. Unless one of these 32 people snitch on who gave them the drugs to sell (unlikely) than this attempt to find drug dealers is flawed. Out of those 32 people there were probably 32 more who didn't get caught. I been reading a lot of things like this the police are doing. They're trying to climb the ladder to bust the big importers and bulk wholesalers of drugs, with little success. Australia is pretty tough on drugs eh?
