    Call your state representatives and demand that all of the illegal aliens in our state prison system not convicted of Capital crimes be rounded up and immediately flown to Mexico City. Let them disperse and fight it out down there.

    I know why you a former "vice cop", Greenville is a heroin town. Like Wilmington. "So What" is right, but he is wrong. I hope it stays illegal, keeps prices up. The drug war is a money racket for the state, as long as we can get fed money to combat the problem, L.E. will create the problem to get fed dollars. Just like any other money racket, except the victims go to jail.

      pills are well into replacing heroin most places including Greenville. Gville and Wilmington are not Bmore or even York Pa with the Herion trade. Its PILLS PILLS PILLS every where now. Pill mills, Doctors & our Govt local & federal make it to get em. Maybe the Mexicans want to turn into a meth town?

    VERY little meth on the street in Pitt and surrounding counties but that does not mean the mexicans or anyone else may come here to try and fill the streets with meth. This area is all about coke and pills for now. Most people dont know mexican meth is expensive & pure. 200 240 a gram. Its not the home made brew made in a bottle or in the bathtub 80 120 a gram. The GVP does a great job hitting these major players & loads. Keep it up guys. They may Dry it out then go after the street thugs. Crime here needs to be dealt with in a hard & swift manner & sooner then later.

    There will be another to take his place in seconds!! Seems weird that the Navy sees fit to give this drug to pilots on aircraft carriers, but won't allow citizens the same opprotunity. The drug war is a failure and a waste of money!! NOTHING has changed in 40 yrs!! and 1 trillion in money spent!! Time to look at other methods than just make evrything illegal. I'm NOT saying murder should be legalized either!! That's comparing apples to oranges. Crime is associated with drugs because the way we deal with drugs now forces a black market ran by criminals just like prohibition did in the 20s-30s!!! Treatment and prevention work!! Prohibition does NOT. How many reading this would go out and but herion if drug use was decriminalized tomorrow? Well... if you were truthful it would be less than 10% would be affirmative. Think about it!!

      You are misinformed. The navy does not give pilots Crystal meth. In WW2 our armed forces were given a version of meth but no longer. Cant fly high!!!! LOL

        In routine missions, no. But in situations such as "Desert Storm", etc. and other high intensity bombing missions/runs, where there are hundreds of sorties. YES it is given to pilots. Sorry. But you are misinformed. It's not just laid out in lines, but given in capsule form by MD. FWIW

          what you given was dexamphetamine a pharmaceutical version of meth in capsule form. Its prescribed by Doctors for many uses. Its still very strong.

      I agree that weed should be made legal but not meth. Meth is the devil's drug-people would rob, beat, kill for another hit. Truckers could buy speed-yellow jackets pills-at the local stores a few years ago to stay up for long trips but when Ice-crystal meth hit the streets it has turned out to be in my opinion the devil's drug, nothing worse than crystal.

      How? By placing laws on law abiding citizens restricting their right to protect themselves when it's overly apparent the local law enforcement can do nothing to halt the violence?

    And a lot of people robbing honest people to support a meth habit.

    Drugs, Guns and Murders are all connected. Thanks for the arrest. Hope we get many more and keep getting them. We don't want your kind in Greenville.
