What am I missing - possession of CDs is a crime? Are we talking about music or is this some new drug or something?

Good one. CDS and CDs are two very different things. CDS stands for "controlled dangerous substance." And CDs are "compact discs," which typically, as you noted, have music on them.

Maybe they were playing loud CDs while ingesting CDSs. I vote for HoJos as "Best of Gloucester Township" for places to party and procure drugs.

Where's the BoBet when you need it?

Most of the small mom and pop motels in the area, like the Oasis and Wilson on Admiral Wilson Blvd went out of business, due to government regulations and high taxes, putting hundreds of girls out of work ...

John, you're incorrigible.

Wait, I forgot to add...and a hopeless romantic;-)
