Houston rapper Paul Wall and Baby Bash might as well volunteer to be DD’s this New Year’s Eve, because on Tuesday, a judge ordered that they not drink alcohol or do any drugs as part of their bond conditions. Just before Christmas, the rappers and several others were arrested and charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and possession of THC with intent to deliver, both felonies.

Each told judges they would not pass their drug tests if made to pee in a cup.

On September 1, a Miami-Dade County Police detective walked into Kareta Kafe on SW 40th Street in West Dade, and sat down at the bar. He ordered a beer, which the bartender happily handed over.

He then ordered $20 worth of cocaine, and the bartender gave him that, too.

According to police reports, Kareta Kafe was operating under the most aggressively South Florida business-model possible: Undercover cops say they spent two months blatantly ordering cocaine at Kareta — including one huge, $140 “eight ball” — all while calmly sipping beer, coffee, whiskey, and bottled water from the bar.
