Fort Lauderdale, Florida: City representatives report that this year's Spring Break was highly lucrative for roadside entrepreneurs. "Unfortunately, many of the sales were illegal," said counselwoman Goldie Saget.
"Local police shut down several stands offering everything from beer and liquor to marijuana brownies to the drug ecstacy. There were even prescription drugs being sold streetside," she said.
"We confiscated tens of thousands of dollars and countless pills," Saget reported. "And we only just scratched the surface of these criminal enterprises."
It is estimated that illegal sales in Broward County alone reached well over $2M during the college recess. Other popular Spring Break desitinations have reported similar findings.
A representative for the DanceSafe organization reported that date rape drug usage appeared to decrease from last year. "We sold more drug testing kits and received fewer complaints of spiked drinks," said a spokeswoman. "This is good news for the party community. Safer is always better."
