I didn't mean to click poor service but now I don't see how to go back and change it! Maybe after I do this reply thing. Also, if they don't find the person in possession of the drug, just somebody said they got it from them, can they do anything about it?
HiUsually, they need more than just one person's word. And what they do sometimes is under cover work. I would suggest that the person involved not be anymore involved at this timeThis is a crime and with significant consequences as I noted.
