In the same boat. Deal was signed, final items were box ticking to close and... sorry guys. We are on hold indefinitely. FML

Regrettably we are as busy as ever. With lockdown there are disputes about shared care arrangements. We expect domestic violence to increase with people in close proximity, drugs becoming scarce and financial pressured.

We are an essential industry, and it's no hard to see why.
Actually drugs being scarce could actually be good for the country :)
Ciggies too.

Scarcity increases prices meaning people have to get bigger scores to get their fix. Shoplifting clothing and electrical goods is an avenue mostly closed to them. Junkie females will find it hard to get clients so they will be looking for other ways to make money. It's not looking good

Long term sure.

But imagine having to spend 24/7 inside with a meth addict who can't get any meth. Disaster waiting to happen all over the country (and world).

Depends who you're with ;)

However, most suppliers will be announcing cuts to the standard price over the next week or so. SSE announced it yesterday so others will follow.

All the drug dealers round my way have suddenly become deliveroo people, apparently.

What happens when their suppliers run out? Who knows.
