Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.
With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.
Homicides - yes/no

Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick.
Which immediately becomes a public expense.
-"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""
This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.
By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.
