GREENBELT, MD. – Drug dealing pays in a big way. It’s a good thing that drug dealers make so much money, at least for a couple of them mentioned in this crime report, as they have to pay over $200 million in judgments to the Federal Government as part of their convictions. And why not, the federal government was making the neighborhood safe where stashed millions and centered their cocaine business in a hideout just a block from the mansion of Vice-President Joe Biden.
