CNN recently mentioned cops in some area offering teens $500 to text-snitch on drug dealers in school. Yeah, sure, because a few hundred bucks is worth risking retribution (potentially death, depending on the drug) to help enforce laws that shouldn’t exist anyway. More likely they’ll be getting false tips.
Although, I can imagine a particularly choosy marijuana customer turning in whoever tried to sell them dirt weed claiming it was White Widow. “Hey, I can buy more weed with that money!”
