The reason for the drug problem in Knox County is that there is nothing else to do. There are no jobs to be found andnothing to do (leisure things).
It is human nature to do what it takes to survive. With the lack of employment in Knox County and the pay for those whom do work... You just can not make ends meet.
I'm not upholding drug dealing! However, I am aware first hand. I have put in about 25 job applications in the last 4-6 months and nothing has happened. I'm either over qualified, underqualified or my college degree does not meet the requirements.
Knox County is going to have to do something for those of us willing to shovel shit, but can not even find a job doing that!
There are approx. 100,000.00 plus unemployed people in this country and I seriously doubt they all turned to swallowing, snorting, and shooting pain pills, muscle relaxants, nerve pills etc, as a means to fix their financial issues. Selling , buying, using (any form of drug abuse including those with valid prescriptions !) is a CHOICE !! They choose the road they take, FREEWILL is undeniably a God given blessing !! Just think about that for a minute. I'm not trying to be rude but I was raised in Knox CTY in the early 1970s and after all the Military dependant payments (my father was retired navy and died when my brothers and I were little kids) wasted on booze and parties by the 10th if the month, we survived on fishing home canned goods, vegetables from the garden depending on the time of year, and many times ate fried turtle ( My Uncle Denver Jordan was a great turtle hunter!!!) if you can believe that !!! Taste like chicken, LOL...Anyway pills weren't an issue back then, just beer and liquor thank God, because we definitely would have starved to death.. But putting the drug abuse aside, I think the mentality of the healthy, work age people in Barbouville has just taken a dive!! Seems they lack ambition, motivation, and the desire for a better life and its worse by the year. will.continue to worsen as more pills, alcohol, weed, or whatever they abuse to feel better for a little while becomes more readily available. Its a pretty vicious cycle, and in one hand.its the individuals fault, but on the other hand, Who can blame him??? Sorry to ramble so.long, I hope I haven't been offensive to anyone...just my two cents..... Robbin (Pixie)

I like all these people without medical training saying what she should have been doing. I am certain she was following Doc's orders and if it were arthroscopic surgery she was told to get moving quickly.

They stole her dog's dope...and whomever has a problem is most likely involved in attempting to take or already on her dog's dope.

I'm actually a Certified Medical Asst. with National Licenseing. I have 20 plus yrs experience in 8 separate specialties, I was not commenting on her medical issues as I have no reason to doubt her story. Actually everything she says seems perfectly reasonable. She was obviously the victim of one of Knox Counties famous desperate pillheads.. Poor lady post her story and gets attacked!! Guess pillheads and pit bulls have a lot in common. They tend to live in packs(ever see a pillheads shack of a home on the 5th of the month, bums pill sick sleeping 2 deep!!) They'll fight (or deny their uselessness) to the death taking up for each other. They breed and reproduce with NO concern for society ,( as WE the tax payers feed and house them). They'll be decent one day (let you pet them) and stab your car tires the next. And lastly a PIT BULL just like a Pillhead will, without a doubt eventually turn on you!!" Damn shame we can't put them down like we can the dogs, which the dogs would make better citizens.
