I am a mother of two teenagers and I am very scared and sick with the fact that there are alot of kids using heroin in collinsville. The police are aware of this and not doing anything.

I graduated from CHS in 2008 and I knew almost my entire graduating class and no one I knew was doing heroin. The kids that are the ones you'd expect it from. The boys that just got arrested, aside from Greg Burgelin, would be the boys I'd suspect of doing such stupid things. You'd know if your kids were getting into heroin. Just keep on an eye on them. I don't think it as as prevalent as the recent news article makes it out to be.

Its more than just a few friends, or one town. its the whole metropolitan area..but im deeply concerned for friends who used to make good choices. its over taking them and they are in denial. every bit of life has been sucked out of them..Its been abused by good smart friends of mine for over a year now...They dont even enjoy drinking beer anymore! Common its college!.. But this is truely a tragedy waiting to happen. parents. i dont care if your kid is 15. 23. 30. 42...if they need help. HELP THEM. before its too late..because they sure as hell wont listen to their old friends. but im not judging..simply saying that heroin blinds them from the truth...

It is very prevalent. It's just that most people (who are used to being viewed as normal outgoing party animals).. don't tell the world about their new sudden..secret...now prolonged, heroin addiction. but it should be addressed. itd be nice to have some folks at our high school reunion dooown the road.

I first heard about some kids doing "heroin buttons" about a month ago. I have two kids going to CHS, I asked both of them....they were not shocked or surprised. Aparently it's a lot more kids than we think! Of course I gave them the lecture about taking ANY medications from anyonYe else...even if you think it's tylenol. I got the MOM....I know better. "WORRIED SICK", you are right! As parents we should be worried, and we should demand answers as to what the police and school are going to do about it. I realize it starts inthe home, but it's not my home I'm worried about!

Collinsville Police need to do their jobs.
They are aware of this problem.Just go sit at Racca
by sonic for 5 minutes. Always selling right there!
Not sure how many people have to die before they start arresting these sellers. Anyone who has children. PLEASE watch your kids if they are PINNED OUT EYES,LIEING and STEALING and USELESS you need to drug test them. A very large group in this town are ADDICTED!
If you have a friend that is using heroin, please go to their family before you lose them.

yep, it's the thing to do now I guess. It's ridiculous. And insane what people who are addicted will do to satisfy their craving.

The police probably take the baggies they arrest people with and use them at home for their parties and buddies
