Here's my suggestion Franklin, pull your pants up take a stand and whip a drug dealers arse for ruining kids lives. I've done a few times, see a druggie, beat thier arse for using and dealing, see how long they stick around. beat'em all down and maybe they'll all leave town or get help thru a rehab, either way don't turn your heads and back down, fight for the kids in Simpson Co. I have a family member on i guess all sorts of crap right now, just found out. So, regardless when i find out who's dealing to my family, they'll be dealt with. If the courts won't kepp it off the street then i'll do what I have to do to stop it myself. If it's someone you know that's dealing and you love'em, too bad, you should've stopped them and now they can pay for it my way.

lol, funny, you see my location is actually correct on here, my family lives in that town, your closer, why don't you go and help me out by spreading the word to citizens to stop taking the crap from these idiots and take a stand on it instead of criticizing me over a post, make yourself more useful and get off your arse and help solve the problem.

I do not condone drug use, or selling in any manner, but you probably should read our gun laws in Ky. before you start "whipping" the drug dealers. You wouldn't live long doing that sort of thing here. I sympathize with you on your relative, and your hatred for these dealers.

there are ways of doing things without a gun, while i'm assured that a dealer or junkie could be arrested and right back out in 24hrs. i would be arrested and sent to prison. considering the circumstance of the hypothetical crime, you would it would the other way around but there are ways of doing things. depends on who you know and who you payoff in Franklin, I lived there long enough to know that much. someone always has a hip pocket open for money.

Are you just talking drugs/pills? If you include all types of substance abuse, including alcohol, your topic may get more hits...Everybody knows somebody who has a at least had a drinking problem, smokes dope, snorts cocaine, uses meth, etc..... However substance abuse is defined as use of a substance in a manner other than it's specified use. Binge drinking falls into the category....but for all practicality it is only abuse when:
1. there is continued use despite social or interpersonal problems.
2. Repeated use resulting in: failure to fulfill obligations at work, school, or home or physically hazardous situations.
3. Use resulting in legal problems.
Funny how it's only considered abuse when it causes a problem and they don't think there is a problem usually...only other people think it's a problem.

true statement, However, on this thread the concern is with drugs, dealers, and the manufacturing of it. I agree with multitasking but when it's for something of this magnitude, best to handle one problem at a time or nothing will ever be done about it.

I'm talking about one of the dealers you want to beat down, shooting you! If it's so easy to pay someone to do this, why don't you go that route?

knowing me and my attitude, if I were actually in simpson county right now, I probably would minus paying someone to do it. i like the ol timey way of doing things by taking matters into my own hands since the popo doesn't do it correctly. Maybe if we had a judge that wasn't so lieniate it would be better. But yes if I were in simpson county, the one who has my family member hooked on it would deffinately have been delt with by now and I wouldn't be on here trying to get the rest of the county to feel some sort of hatred for the same thing instead of kicking back and letting it all happen every single day. The rest of my family there knows about it i'm sure but looks like they don't have enough gumption to stop it.

Your right, they don't have the gumption you got. Maybe you should head on down here, and straighten this town out! lol

I've lived in several states and this is the smallest city I've lived in (Bowling Green). I've never seen so many drugs in my life. There were (and are) drug issues in EVERY area of the country, but it just seems like it is to the extreme in this region. There are probably many different causes behind this, but that's a whole different topic.

I don't use drugs and nobody in my family has a problem with them. One of my siblings is an alcoholic and my dad is on the verge of it, but no pills or meth. I am friends with a social worker who frequently works with people who are addicted to meth, pills, or both. She has seen people end up in the hospital due to cardiac arrest brought on by drug use, children get taken away from their parents because of drug use, careers destroyed due to drugs, and so on.

It's very sad. A great deal of her clients have families that treat them like pariahs now because they have gone into treatment for drug abuse, and she has had one client who committed suicide over the embarrassment that she felt she had caused her family over drug use.

Cardiac arrest, children taken away, careers destroyed, seperation from familys, and suicide...sounds like alchohol also. Just saying, and again, I do not condone the abuse of any substance.

pharmaceutical companies and doctors are to blame! legal drug dealers thats what they are. if a person is sick enough to have oxcycotin or morphine or even opanna they need to go into the docs office and have it administered by the doctor himself to heck with sending out with a script half of them dont even use their meds they SELL THEM!!!! i;m pissed franklin sits back and just lets this happen pills are at their worst in this town and NOONE is doin anything to stop it. this country needs a drug czar that STOPS these drugs instead the gov't allows pharmaceutical companies continue making stronger drugs...duh.... a new hydro[loratab/vicodiene] is set to be released in 2013 that is 10 times the strength, no Tylenol in these strictly hydrocodiene. wtf is up they know we have a serious problem with these opiates already so why make them stronger??? my guess is population control, the gov't says "let em use that way everyone makes MONEY, from drug companies down to dealers and then smalltown government gets in on the action by arresting pple...never ending and it is the decline of society!!!!

Why not take pictures of the drug deals going down. Send a copy to the police, Mayor and then put it on you tube. If it is a "certain group" (I've heard sell it in all places), then maybe we as a "certain group" can get rid of the "dope dealers". We all know the family I'm talking about too!!!! It's been going on for "YEARS" here in Franklin Ky. So why not start wit them?????

Total agree with this! Doctor need to really regulate who they prescribe to and just administer things in their office unless they just can't for whatever reason.
