  1. So sad, please if you cannot be responsible don’t have children. Poor little soul, so sad. 5 years old and both parents going to jail (most likely) so so sad. Think people, think, omg!

  2. The value of this stuff SHOULD be ZERO!
    Don’t buy it, & don’t use it and it becomes worthless.
    With the kind of money involved, it shows how many folks support the trade.
