  • It's an open weed market right across the street from the military school?!😳Why it continues right in front of the police car parked on the corner is beyond me? That 2 block segment of 35th is an embarrassment. There is loitering there because of all of the loose cigs and weed that gets sold there. All just 2 blocks away from CPD HQ. Impressive!😒👎

    I used to think that you had to hide or be discreet, but this is right in front of Congressman Rush's home. literally 3 blocks from police headquarters, maybe I am naïve but it's as if they had a license to deal drugs.
