    When the men on the chessboard
    Get up and tell you where to go
    And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
    And your mind is moving low
    Go ask Tara
    I think she’ll know

    Seems like the mono narc squad is putting in a LOT of hours (a good thing) but sad that they’re having to serve more search warrants than a city 2,or 3 times the size of Mammoth. Why ANYONE would put that meth-pipe to their lips for the first time is …
