What in the heck is wrong with people? Circleville alone has had over 5 deaths in the last week from overdose. Am I the only one that has noticed.. Anyone else worried?
My concern is I have children that attend the High school and tell me they could buy any drug of choice from the kids there. Thank God me and my kids have a close relationship, but I worry for the parents who are blinded.
Parents and friends wake up, if we can not save the lives of adults talk to the kids before its to late.
I would sell my soul to the devil to keep my kids safe and alive. The demons are knocking at the back door of all our loved ones and its claiming many lives fast.
I keep over the counter drug test in my house and proud to say I use them on my kids. I would rather them be pissed off at me alive then putting them to rest, and wish I had. If just one person reads this and acts out then it may just be one life saved

Jimmy, I can not just turn the other cheek on any teenager. These kids are our future. I only hope to reach out to parents and make them aware, then step in and be a parent before its to late. If they do not.. They may watch the one important thing in their life be robbed by the drug.
I believe for a kids it is never to late to try, sadly for some its already to late and time is one thing you can not take back

Its not that I dont care, Maybe I just gave up on a lost cause. These young people are warned and warned about the number of deaths, about how their money feeds the criminal enterprises, about how drugs can make you feel good at first, then you lose the ability to feel good naturally, and the the drug no longer makes you feel good anymore, you have to keep doing just to keep from being sick. Theyve probably all seen the ten-year progression of pictures of a person on meth. how she age 35 years in only ten. yet a lot of them will still believe that the people who do drugs has got it together and they choose to follow like ignorant little sheep. Kid should have a one week class in shcool for the fact on drugs. let be shown the inevitable results. The negative news stories, the daily chase, the wasted money. then after they have had fair, true warning, let them make their choice. Then if they want to be a part of the teenage wasteland. let em have it. Schools could show a film of the life of various drug addicts. Could be quite effective in preventing a dozen or so untimley deaths later on from each school. sounds worth the effort.

Honestly I do not believe the users stop to think about what other people has done to the drug about to be used. I scream to people that they are taking the chance of placing this drug into their body not knowing what mg's of whatever is mixed in this drug? This is where parents need to have the knowledge to explain to the kids.
It is not worth the chance of taking ones life over just a few hours of a high. I have talked to many users they all say the drug starts making your body feel relaxed.. now if it is used with a needle ..it goes right to the heart mean while your body is relaxed but with a overdose your body can not react to even know its becoming overdosed until your heart just stops. Again not knowing what the each dealer has done to the drug.. THEY DO NOT KNOW what the are using .. they may call it crack, herion or whatever.. But I have heard stories of people cutting rat poison in it, tea.. or most likely what ever the dealers has at home on hand to stretch the batch they are selling. On the other hand I have heard that people get use to diluted drugs ..often pure drugs get sold .. a person's body is use to lets say (say 2 balloon's diluted) according to ones weight. Now if the dealer gets their hands on a pure batch..The same person buys 2 balloon's it will overdose them! This is what parents needs to be talking to their children about! And remember drugs cross many states.. therefor it changes many hands when this happens ..Every state it crosses.. Every hand may have mixed or cut a poison or what ever in it before it is sold to a user, That user could be our children or loved one.

I do feel your pain, My only brother is a junkie. It breaks my heart to see what he use to be compared to looking at him now. I can not change him he is in his mid 40's and he doesn't care about anything. God himself knows I have tried to talk and help him to I was blue in the face. I have learned a lot from him I ask him questions about drugs to educate myself as a mother to my kids. I may never win the battle over drugs to save my brother, but I will be the aggressive mother to save my kids, or any other kid for that matter, And your right there should be a program in school the kids should me made to attend in small groups about the truth of drugs on the streets. But I find that most parents are blinded to the pride of their child rather than the knowledge of harm their children live and assume it would not be their child using drugs. My brother could do no wrong in my parents eye's for years they upheld him on everything. Now if he does one thing right they still glow..which is what he feeds off of. This does not solve the problem

Its a coincidence you should bring that up just now about not knowing whats put into heroin to stretch dealer profits. I know a couple in the south end who shoot heroin daily, Just yesterday someone I know visited them, and he had injected heroin into her hand and her hand swelled up with a large bubble and became discolored. They told him a poor batch of cheap impure heroin has been brought into circlville and is being sold. So I figure soon you can expect to be hearing of a few more dying for the garbage. Homicide charges could be waiting for those who inject anther person. Better let em do it to themselves.

I only wish they would arrest a lot more of the pushers. Circleville is very bad. I live in Circleville and its sad to say that if a user was to walk from the end of Norfolk Street onto Logan street where it meets Pickaway street (roughly 3 blocks) and lets say they bought and used along the way ...off every dealer from point A to B they would not be alive to tell about it.
I have seen the junkie Bubble on many people, the more scare is dirty needles and the HIV spread.
The are falling like flies in this town yet nothing seems to be getting done by officials? It is obvious where the sells are anyone can drive the streets and notice all the junkies gathered around certain houses and parked cars they don't even try to hide it.
Just the other day my daughter gave her Uncle a ride (she is 17) she showed me the house.. IT was a drug house..She didn't know..(she showed me the house) My daughter has already received scholarships to go to college for nursing, This piece of dead skin thought more of himself getting drugs than what he dangered his own niece of.. One car ride could have cost her whole college career! I am still pissed over that

I'm not familiar with heroin or how it is used. My son told me his dad has a large 'bubble' on his hand, is this a sign of heroin use? I don't get close enough to him to check out his hands or his arms, I don't know what to look for, I don't know who to ask? This isn't the only clue that he may be on drugs, but I have nothing concrete to start with. I just want to protect my children the way my parents protected me.....

I can not assure you the bubble on his hand is a junkie bubble, I can only speak from what I have seen. I can tell you that the use of using a needle (to shoot up the drug) that does not hit the vein looks like a big round purple in color and turns hard knot that will leak infection.
The most common way that is a red flag is if the persons attitude starts to take a big turn towards things they once respected.
I do not want to but bad thoughts in your head about a innocent (possibly) person.
And I will try to search the net to find links to show you the difference.. Keep your fingers crossed that I can find a source with pics to help.

ok go to... mrsa-staph-infection.com and look at the Mrsa pictures then boils. The junkie Bubble looks a lot like the one on the side of this persons eyebrow but it is purple ..here is what i found on
How is heroin used?

Heroin is usually injected, sniffed/snorted, or smoked. Typically, a heroin abuser may inject up to four times a day. Intravenous injection provides the greatest intensity and most rapid onset of euphoria (7 to 8 seconds), while intramuscular injection produces a relatively slow onset of euphoria (5 to 8 minutes). When heroin is sniffed or smoked, peak effects are usually felt within 10 to 15 minutes. Although smoking and sniffing heroin do not produce a “rush” as quickly or as intensely as intravenous injection, NIDA researchers have confirmed that all three forms of heroin administration are addictive.
Heroin addicts are at risk for contracting HIV, hepatitis C, and other infectious diseases. Drug abusers may become infected with HIV, hepatitis C, and other blood-borne pathogens through sharing and reuse of syringes and injection paraphernalia that have been used by infected individuals.

I hope that Erica Mills (doty) or whatever her name is rots in her jail cell knowing that she did in fact sell bad dope to make an extra dollar to get high on her own supply. HER dope ALONE killed 5 ppl in the pickaway county area. i hope she thinks about all those parentless kids out there trying to stay well, while this white trash drove her pretty little mustang around pushing her dope on teenagers. i'm close to someone she helped make his death quicker, but I hope that the prison time she gets isn't anything compaired to how these kids have to grow up without parents b/c she had to make that extra 20 so she could get high. passin all that hep c and hiv all over circleville. JUST LEAVE. We don't want YOU we don't want your DOPE, just go. Go to an new town and lace ur dope with d-con then BRAG about it. That's complicity to Murder there Erica, so I hope your public pretender gets u more than treatment in lieu of, you deserve prison period. and another certain fat ass crack dealer (also a girl) who is out on an O.R. for 4 counts of trafficking can take her crack and leave Circleville also. Sick of these nasty ppl that take lives, ruin them then think it's funny. And for those about to jump my case, I am a recovering addict that knows what I'm talking about, just sick of how Circleville is. 6832
