Some Kingpin

Yesterday, some variation of the following headline could be viewed at many news sites around the internet.

Ohio High School Student: 17-Year-Old Kingpin Arrested In Major Drug Bust

If one took the time to read one of the various articles announcing the bust of the “Kingpin,” a variation of this information would be read.

An Ohio high school student has been arrested by police, who allege he is a drug kingpin, who ran a multimillion dollar ring, which distributed high-grade marijuana throughout two school districts, netting about $20,000 per month.

Reading further into the article, though, one would begin to wonder if this 17 year old kingpin was actually running some multi-million dollar drug ring, or was just a high school kid selling some weed.

Yahoo News reports that when cops raided the 17-year-old’s bedroom, they found $6,000 in cash. Because the student was a minor (16) at the time of the drug deals,...

Sales must have been down if only $6,000 bucks were found, either that or the margin on sales of marijuana aren’t what they used to be.  Shouldn’t a drug “Kingpin” have a bit more cash on hand?
