A drug dealer who spoke to the media on condition of anonymity said recent arrests of Telegrass dealers will not change anything because, “this whole country is full of pot heads,” the Hebrew media site Mako reported on Tuesday.
Calling the recent wave of arrests in Israel and abroad “a light setback," he added that, “it’s just a software, if they close this one more will follow.”
When asked if the arrest of the alleged creator of the online drug sales application makes any difference he said “nobody is beyond replacement.”
Israel Police arrested 42 suspects for drug trafficking through the mass cannabis distribution network Telegrass on Tuesday, effectively halting one of the Jewish state’s largest drug sale operations.
Telegrass is run on the instant-messaging app Telegram. The network has been the target of a months-long undercover investigation by the Israel Police.
