I'm not understanding the big drug problem here in Beckley. I just moved here from Philly and I thought that place was bad. When I came here everyone looks cracked out. I saw a mother and father with their two children and they were maybe 90lbs each. So sad. Do doctors just hand out pills to anyone? This is crazy.

I applaud Cheddars, they have hired 220+ employees for the Beckley location alone, I don't care if it is just "another restaurant" it is more jobs for the area and a great boost for the local economy. That's a lot of jobs produced just by one restaurant, I expect Olive Garden to hire just as many. Whether or not you think we need more restaurants, the resulting job opportunities must be appreciated.

I dont understand why it takes 220+ to run a restaurant. Thats just insane how do you expect to make money working there if you have more than 20 servers working at one time.

It's that bad! For a town this size it's simply amazing how many are strung out. These people have been devastated and they will never recover. This place never really had a lot going for it but it was peaceful. Now that peace has been shattered by at least one robbery every night,and a hand full of breaking and entering every night! That Zombie Apocalypse thing showed up in a prescription. Thanks greedy practitioners,you are now the new drug dealers! Thank you so much!

They will open when they find enough employees who can pass a drug test. That's the holdup from what I hear.

LOL... Seriously? What are you people smoking to suggest that Beckleys drug problem is anything bigger than a gnat on the ass of a bear sized problem any major metro like Philly has.

Ill explain it to the one from Philly... its a form of Self fulfilling prophecy.
A strongly held belief, or a delusion, declared as truth when it is actually false may sufficiently influence people, either through fear or logical confusion, so that their reactions ultimately fulfill the once-false belief.
You hear about it.. you see it everywhere. Its the same effect that can be observed when you buy a new car, and then immediately see how "common" that car is on the road but never noticed it before.

You cannot be in this area without people telling you how horrible the drug crime is here. You hear about it, you see it everywhere. Even when it isnt present, you begin to assume its presence.

Perception created illusions. Nothing more. If this town were any more "sleepy" it would be comatose.
