    In the Little town of Swampscott, MA we have a OXY dealer that is the nephew of the Captain of our local PD so he never seems to get in trouble, amazing huh???? We also just had a fairly busy OXY dealer sentenced to 5 years plus a day for dealing, as well as we have a 20 year old Drug Dealer that seems like the teflon don because he is Mike Lynch’s Nephew(Channel 5 Sports). This kid deals in 100 pound lots of POT, and has deliveries from the west coast each week. He also deals in MOLLY which is the drug that Extasy is derived from, he also deals in Perc 30’s. For some reason this kid is slippery, has accumulate over 400,000.00 in cash since being arrested for dealing and threatening murder and bodily harm to local people!! This is going to be a long haul for people dealing with this drug, Shame on the Pharmacuetical companies, the dealers and the users. Shame on Law enforcement for selectively enforcing also!!
