    I am not a smart person. But, how the hell all those contrabands get by those at the checkpoint ?
    Some officers, if manning the checkpoint, must be in this for the favors-extra money supplementing their meagre salary… that is not science fiction.
    I understand some need marijuana for their pain- I must try it to see the results.
    The Govt. need to hire those smart kids to run many of these problem related offices…Head of the Prisons etc.
