They haven’t said too much at this stage about why the men both fell ill. I guess all will be revealed once a post mortem has been performed. Strange both if them were bad. Must have been something they both had!!!!!

Try not buying any at all. How about that. Sad people have to turn to drugs increasing the bank balances of skummy drug dealers. Stay clean and clear of drugs, it’s not cool at all.
