There isn't much of a market for it because overseas they are a
little more relaxed about drug use compared to to the U.S. police.
They just wouldn't sell in the Netherlands for example.

Only if you've found a use for them that the rest of us are unaware of....

Are you perhaps saving all of the leftovers from the activities of
the apotemnophiliacs??? Not a bad idea perhaps, you could send them
over to Eugene and we could get some electromicrographs to see which
individuals actually sharpened their tools before using them.

Remember the Carpenter's rule, measure twice, cut once.
