Humans, like many other animals, crave the taste of salt. Animals frequent salt licks, humans have traded salt for equal weights of gold, and the word “salary” comes from the Roman soldier’s allowance for purchasing salt. Salt appears in our language in idioms like “worth its salt” and “salt of the earth.”

Ohio Attorney General Speaking Out Against Opiate Epidemic

Well unfortunately that is not going to happen unless more funds are allocated to drug enforcement. Community leaders now try to get the drug selling houses reported to the drug line but the response time is slow because of so many calls or documentation and evidence submitted is not enough to make a bust. Drug selling is on the “fly” we need drug enforcement available on the “fly” as well.
