    Every drug is addictive. If not, then there would not be money in it. Legal or not, if you want this crap to stop, then finding real cures is the only true route. California is a prime example of what legalizing pot will do. It will not stop illegal sales, but only increase the amount dealers are giving customers. People are going to use drugs regardless. Until the jail and prison systems really focus on rehab, this fight is senseless. For every dealer busted, 3 more await their turf and clients. Dont believe, ask someone who has left jail on possession to sell or use. Arresting these people is solely about money. The war on drugs was fought, lost, and not the powers that be are in denial about it. Finally, havent you noticed a lot of people making the laws on drugs are in fact users themselves. Now that is reform. Ref out.

    Maybe the MCSD could come to Washington County and make some drug busts. Because what we have sure isnt working. To many sorry people trying to run a sheriffs department here.

    To Lena: I completely agree, the way it is run is horrible! I could go on forever about this... To Resident: Drugs of all types are much more accessible by children and teens than alcohol, this is a fact! No drug dealer is going to check ID before selling a teenager a little bit of crack. Also, I never said alcohol wasn't bad, I personally think it is worse than marijuana. Don't talk to me about common sense, I didn't set up the system. Furthermore, you aren't going to stop kids/teens or adults from using anything they want to do, so some regulation on things we deem not a large risk to health should be considered. To Curious: You bring nothing to the table, if you believe you have something of worth to share then do, otherwise don't reply..

    We need to borrow the Martin Co sheriffs dept. LCSD can only seem to catch the criminals around here when people start to notice that they're not good for much...

    To: Informed I was just discussing this the other day. Is it really fair for the gov. to sell drugs/alcohol to the public, but allow others not to? Isn't it hypocritical? There is no drug more addictive than what they put in cigarettes? People will buy cigarettes before they buy food for their kids. Where is the government's responsibility in creating a drug that is so addictive? It's like crack, one hit and you are hooked. If the crack dealers are being arrested, who is policing the government. Answer: no one. They get the profits, raise taxes, and healthcare expenses. They laugh all the way to the bank. They say exactly what drug dealers say," I didn't make them do it". It just a shame! Marijuana in its natural state is a medicine, but once the chemical are added, there is no telling what you are getting. Even if government regulated, what chemicals would they use? Would it be safe? Probably not
