I live on Caney Fork and often have to stop at the end of the road for gas and groceries. I would HATE to see the store close and certainly wouldn't want to see a small business be demolished. I think it was totally irresponsible to expose innocent people but do YOU know with out a shadow of doubt that it was even them producing the drug?????Thought not and last but certainly NOT LEAST your comment about "anyone that exposes someone else to their addiction should be in prison!" IS STUPID AND RIDICULOUS!!!! SO you are saying that if I walk into a store or get out of my car and stand next to someone drinking a beer or smoking a cigarette they should go to jail???I didn't think so.......

Meth is toxic and the production of meth is highly toxic and explosive, dumbass. Your connection is shut down.

First of all I have NEVER done drugs and never intend on doing them. YOU NEED TO GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT there was a thorough investigation into the "highly toxic and explosive chemicals" found inside the store. According to guidelines if there was high levels inside the store, it would have been demolished. BUT SEEING how it is still standing and all the owners had to do was put a fresh coat of paint on the walls and ceiling, THE LEVELS COULD NOT HAVE BEEN THAT BAD IF ANY. I know that you are not calling me a dumbass considering you don't even know me. I am not the one hiding behind a fake login name, DrS, I use my real name Kristin Stevens.

No I am NOT TO LAZY you stupid asshole! It's because I live about 20 miles from the closest gas station, which happens to be Moonshine Mini Mart. And what the hell does drug testing people have ANYTHING to do with this conversation??????I don't care how much they "got caught with". My whole point was that if the levels of toxicity was TOO HIGH the DEA, EPA, and Jackson County would have made sure to have it demolished...And seeing how it is still standing, the levels must not have BEEN THAT BAD!!!

Go get gas from the people who poison our youth and sell minors cigarettes. You are the reason the U.S. is in decline. You can ignore a menace to society because you cant manage your life to plan ahead and have enough gas to drive 4 miles further to Cullowhee.

Dugs testing is part of my job and being exposed to Meth houses causes false positives. This business put countless people's jobs at risk.

The good news for everyone is that under circumstances like this building in particular, there are procedures that can be done to decontaminate the building making it safe and a business can be held in the building again. I have heard that the decontamination has already been completed, but I don't know for sure.
