I haven't seen any dispute to this hearing, but think about this:  If Laura was
in with Jacques and company, she probably with also in with Leo, and would have
ready access to a drug supplier, a drug supplier who was in fact subcontracting
to Bobby, therefore Laura would theoretically have no need to get drugs FROM
Bobby.  Points to ponder:

If Laura's real motive was to corrupt other people (as intimated in the talk
with Jacoby), then she may have been simply getting him involved in coke for
its own sake, for its corruption value, and not actually needing him as a
supplier.  Maybe she wanted Bobby to think she "needed" him to get the coke,
then she wouldn't be dependent on contact with Leo, something she might not
have wanted to be too visible.  And in the process, she brings Bobby down,
although this does not sound like a challenge.  On the other hand, Bobby might
have no idea what Laura's real motives are at all, or (heaven forbid) he may be
lying about the whole thing to score points with the shrink.  I know it can be
argued that he seemed sincerely devastated at Jacoby's disclosure of his
heretofore unknown (to Bobby) knowledge of Laura's character, and that this
made it unlikely that he was pandering to Jacoby, but I wonder,
"A new religion that'll bring you to your knees, Black Velvet if you please..."
