ALSO i did a web search and there was an article there stating it was a major city for the mexican cartel! so i dont know,im sure this doesnt go on unnoticed and galax seems like such a nice town! we were thinking of moving to the area til i heard about this! does anybody know about this??

I've lived in Carroll County all my life. The police have captured some people with drugs, some appeared tp be dealers. However for the most part Galax is a peaceful place. I don't think the drug problem is any worse than anywhere else, and the police departments, County and City work together.
Did you know Galax is named for a leaf? Galax leaves grow in the woods here in Southwest VA. Gala, so I read, is Greek for milk. The rest is Latin, meanin g pouring or flowing. The flower of the Galax leaf is an inverted white cone, that reminds many who see it of milk pouring or flowing.
Come visit, camp, hike the New River Trail. Or, attend the Galax Old Time Fiddlers Convention(along with people from all over the world). Galax may not be the center of the Eastern US, but it's close enough. A 12 hr. drive will get one to a large part of the Eastern US. It's approx. 1 1/2 hours from Roanoke, VA; approx. 1 hour from Winston Salem, NC for big city shopping. Rent for a while. You'll probably like it. D

I personally tend to believe what some person who has lived there their whole life tells me over some reporter! as for the other responses THANK YOU!! im just trying to find somewhere nice and safe for my family closer to my job!

Sounds like a commercial for Harmons , and I guess throwing in some drama does attract more attention to it .

There are no "cartels" in Galax ,there's a huge screen in the police station that shows what is going on in every area of the town , they can see every street corner without even going outside , and there are so many cops that you are lucky if you can even fart without getting arrested .

Oh yes I will keep posting and with no need to use rude, foul language like yours .

I don't think drug cartels is what you should be worrying about as much as that attitude of yours .

Move to a little redneck town like Galax and talk to someone like that in person and see if he or she don't slap the spit out of that mouth .:)

I don't do drugs , and am not a convict , and am just wondering what would make you state that about me being that you do NOT know me other than what we have posted on this forum .Are you this dramatic in the RW ?

HARMONS SUCKS .Their prices are too high and their clothing went out of style in the 80's.

And do you mind telling me what jail making people tougher has to do with this conversation ? I don't think we were even discussing that.

Are you on strong meds or do you just have mental problems ?

Looks like you need to go back and reread . Or maybe you can point out to me in which post did I even use the word jail ? Apparently the only thing you are good at is throwing insults and bad language , because you definitely suck at discussion .

Dang...ladies please...lol. There is nothing going on in Galax that is not going on in America. symbiotic ... check out Grayson County...we are not so fast to slap! I am no local but it is a Great place to raise a family...just drive on through Galax and head toward the New River...only river in the U.S. that flows south...further you go into Grayson the prettier it is! Not a commercial since I don't own it...

Ummm...just curious...do you live in Galax? That is so funny...I can really visualize the GPD...COWERING in a room watching all the criminal activities on a screen...might help if instead of armored cars and expensive sniper rifles...they would hire a cop that spoke Spanish ! Just a thought...

Yes the gulf cartel and their enforcer branch "the zetas" have a presence in the area.Just look at the news over the past couple years they kill in bunches.These people use murder as a tool to further their business and they are here for sure.for those who don't believe this you should open your eyes because denial never fixed anything.I've also seen ms-13 tags around don't know if it's legit or just wannabe kids but the wannabe seem to be the most dangerous at times.I know this to be true because I used to move in their world and trust this it's not a world for the weary.So you folks better get on the ball because it is a nice area and I hate to see this happen.

LOL - I moved out of Galax about 3 years ago .I went into the police station reguarding a traffic ticket that was given to me and saw what was going on in almost the whole town while I was waiting for the officer who gave me the ticket .

No hillbilli I don't live in Galax but I do know what goes on there.Just go to the DEA website there is a section that lists towns with cartel presence i belive it's under the organized crime section but have to search a bit.They have a map and all it's right there for everyone to see.

No smartypantz i'm not tweaking I've always been partial to the nod personaly.
