Would You Like Crack With That?

I just don’t understand what the big hoopla is over the recent arrest of college students at San Diego State University.

Everyone knows that college tuition is extremely high, so I’m thinking that these brilliant future business leaders found a way to not only help ease the financial burden their parents were facing by putting them through college, but also exercising the educational muscle they were receiving through their education.

I mean, come on! Sure they forgot to write a business plan or file their new company with the state. I’m sure they also neglected to obtain an Employer Identification Number (EIN) with the IRS, but look at what they did do! Not only did they seemingly form a whole chain, almost an Amway-like upline of dealing their drugs, but they utilized technology to market their wares, offered sales (thus having an understanding of supply and demand economics), and worked with foreign dealers, which definitely shows that International flare for business dealings and importing.

I’d say they pretty much earned that degree with their extra credit activities! While people may scoff at the student, 1 month shy of receiving his degree in Homeland Security, being arrested, what better experience for a future agent than to experience first hand the illegal activities and ease at which drugs and potential terrorists can cross our borders! I say give him a job right now so we can learn from this eager young man’s experiences!

I think that the media and police officials need to relax about this whole “misunderstanding” and give these poor (well, ok, maybe poor is a bad choice of words) college students a break. After all, they’re just kids who are about to join the ranks of the gainly employed like the rest of us, and I can’t think of a better business associate than a drug dealer.
