Is it because the local law enforsement is under staffed or over worked? Why doesn't Frankfort offer more help........Is it the fault of the Doctors that are dirty or pain clinic's every mile or so? or maybe the Doctor shoppers in Florida?

If possible, the drug problems are getting worse. Until they get the big dogs around here, it will never change and the cops won't touch them because of who they are. Also, there are some doctors that don't help the matter. They write the scrips knowing that they are either users or sellers of the drugs. They also need to go after some of the doctors and put their ass in prison for a long time and lose their license and not ever get them back.

Of course the officers dealing isn't helping. The Lawyers who are involved in either dealing or using. The drug dealers that help to buy the elections don't help the problem.

Is it because the local law enforsement is under staffed or over worked and the rest or either lazy or on the take. The police already lost the battle they are just doing a holding action. Sad when the rest of KY calls Hazard Drug Capital USA.

because it cant be stopped by no cop force when you bust one it opens the door for 10 more drug dealers

Thats right they supplying, not using. Like any business, supply and demand and there ia big demand in Hazard. Why is there such a demand ?
Boredom ! There just not that much to do in Hazard.

Got a very open mind, used to live in Perry County,
in fact going down for Christmas to visit, but you couldnt pay me enough to move back.

Seen it all, stealing from relatives, rape (seems to be number 2 after drugs) killings. Saw one woman draged out of her and they stole the car in broad daylight. When ever I come down I keep one gun in tht truck 2 on my person at all times.

it's because alot of ppl all so far gone and they really dont know how to get clean. I'ts not because they want to live like they do but they dont see that they have a choice. Some ppl are court ordered to na/aa mtgs. and they dont even have a clut to what the 12 steps mean. Long term rehab is the only help i have ever found that helped me in my addiction. they broke the steps down there and i worked them-putting everything i had in me into them. They told me that i only had to change one thing and that was everything and they weren't joking either. My thinking was very screwed up and it took alot of time and work to change. I feel like if Hazard had a rehab and ppl could better understand addiction that they could then get some help and start recovering and stop living in hell.Jail and prison dont help addicts it only makes them cold and angry and causes more resentments which lead to using. unfortunately a lot of ppl are dying in their addiction and i am just so grateful that i got help and that now it is my choice of whether i will go back to that lifestyle of mysery. and today I choose not to!If you need help and cant get into a longterm rehab ask someone in a na/aa mtg to help you work the steps. they work ppl! I promise they do. I use to think that it was all a bunch of bull but now i know they are not. They saved my life...i have 17 months of sobriety now and i thank GOD for that each and every morning I wake up and every night before I close my eyes. I may die tomorrow but I will be clean and sober if I go!!!!

Live in Illinois now.

As far as rape most women follow the national average 95% dont report it. If theres no rapes going on why is there a rape crisis center downtown Hazard ?

The car jack happened about 4 blocks from the Hazard Police Station .

Well the population of my town is 40,000 the same as Perry County and when I compare newspapers it makes my town look like its populated with a bunch of nuns.

exactly what part of illinois do u live larry my gf moved from peoria bout 8 years ago cuz of a much worse drug addiction than pills, now granted this wasnt a good place to come to try to get off something but she wanted to get clean and did. Im just saying i live in perry co and im proud of it, not proud of everything that goes on but this is where im from.So unless u live in a church i doubt u live with a bunch of nuns. Basically i just dont think u have ur facts straight, and b4 u start talking about people and where they are from u should know what the hell ur talking about. Oh yeah, im pretty sure perry co dont have 40,000 people, now i could be wrong but if i had to guess i would say about half of that, and at the most 30,000
