That's a good report card for Princess Anne stores. What about Salisbury bet they wouldn't pass, and if not those businesses could generate $ for Salisbury. Same is true for over grown weeds and grass around Salisbury Businesses example the Elks Golf Club to the YMCA, Salvation Army along Eastern Shore Drive. If we had a mayor that stayed on top of things and saw ways of making $ rather than spending.

good to see we are safe from tobacco. (not) how about doing a check on drugs and making sure the weight is correct?

Keeping tobacco out of the hands of minors or keeping Marylanders from buying Virginia cigarettes where they're significantly cheaper because VA doesn't tax the hell out of smokers? There in lies the real question.

Was there any reports of actual selling to underage people in any of these stores?

Or, was this simply another illegal warrantless search / entrapment program?

Leave us alone!
We used to be free

Heroin dealers beware! Make sure you have your dealer's license ready and the dosages are correct! Also for crack and meth dealers as well.

I know, government regulations are jacking up your prices and it's hard to stay competitive, but still,you must comply.

Oh, wait... never mind...
