seems like this pair has been on the road for along time and police know this. a man was arrested for stealing the heroin at one point and was put in jail.. These two seem to have a freedom to do as they please and look at how many young people are hooked or on the clinic due to the distrubution of the heroin...

sounds to me like they are both addicts and suffer the disease of addiction. Never say never because it could be your son or daughter. He was the Salutorian of his graduating class in high school. The disease of addiction is one of desparation

1. I haven't caused anyone to start using opiates, people I've met have been using well before.
2. As the poster above said, anyone can succome to addiction. You should educate yourself about the matter.
3. What about the thousands of people in Vermont, illegally selling and using Oxycontin and other opiate perscriptions. Those are opiates just like heroin, don't look at heroin as being something completely different because of the stigmatism.

To concerned mother: Who are the real victims?

I "heard" about someone dealing and they never went looking for customers, people came to him begging for stuff.

Addiction is a serious disease in this country, that claims tens of thousands of people, not to mention the family members and friends who are affected by the use. Drugs will NEVER be eliminated. The demand side of the problem needs to be dealt with, such as more rehab centers, easier ways to get medication. There is a 1 year wait for the methadone clinic, and you must call every month. For an addict that is unreasonable, to wait a whole year! A lot happens in that time.

Don't judge people either. You have no idea what they've been through. Like the above poster said, I was salutatorian of my class, I was on the dean's list all 4 semesters of college, and I had a bright future. But usually drugs are used to mask emotional and psychological problems, and before you know it you are in a deep deep whole.

Please educate yourself on this topic, especially books that look at both sides of the issue, including legalization and heroin maintenance.

If you have any questions about good reading material, or any other questions for me, I'd be glad to answer.

I'm going to court on these charges in the next week. I hope they are lenient.

I have worked my ass off, beating this monkey of my back. I have been clean and sober for about 2.5 months, longest ever. I was in rehab for 3 months and have been doing counseling 3X a week, as well as NA/AA meetings. Things have finally changed because I wanted them to. Spending 4 days in jail isn't long, but when you're in there it is the longest 4 days of your life. That has definitely been a huge deterrent to failure.
