Easy problem to solve

Just make all of these into cheap OTC drugs and tax them. You will still get the customers using the "five finger discount" method but you won't have to deal with their weapons. Wink

He robbed banks because that's where the money is.

It just goes to show if something of value is to be gotten that it will be the nature of crooks to go after them. It does matter what it is after all, they do hijack trucks for TVs and even latest or hot video games. I would think drugs too are on the wish list. Our drug laden society that even if OTC sold it would be abused and if qualities are wanted still rob as an end result. If in big cities the local carry-outs have bullet-proof surrounding for the vendors to sell chips, beer and cigarettes, why not the drug store(maybe some do). Since this a Canada related article it shows things are changing up north. -----Willy Happy

that's either Malaya or Madagascar has a "zero tolerance" on drugs or for any infraction like spitting on the sidewalk, they go after you. I'm sure this is the same country that "caned" a visiting student some time back for what we would call a minor thing. In that country they pretty much have the trail and proceed rather rapidly to render the death sentence in totality. If caught selling drugs; death, if caught in murder; death, if using drugs; death and the list goes on. I'm sure those with better defense attorneys may at least get life imprisonment. More often than not, it's death sentence for capital/major crimes. If this was China, you have your relatives billed for the bullet used to dispatch you. -----Willy Shocked

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
