This should surprise no one. Once you deal in illegal substances, it's only a matter of degree.
Like the old Hollywood parable from many years ago: A wealthy and powerful man was attending a party. Also in attendance was a gorgeous but struggling up and coming young starlet. The man offered her $1 million to sleep with him. The young starlet, knowing the man could open doors for her in the industry and desperate for money, agreed. Then the man asked if she would sleep with him for $100. She responded, "Of course not, what kind of girl do you think I am?!?!" The man smiled and responded, "We've already established that, my dear. We are now merely negotiating the price."
