    Awesome! Great job and keep up the good work!

    Keep looking…there are plenty more out there who need to be rounded up and hauled away!

    Tell you what, just walk in to any pharmacy in Hartselle and pull the Sudafed report. 95% of the time the ones who are maxed out for multiple months in a row probably have roots in the drug business.
