They do without! One of their neighbors named Dave is also a problem. Another druggie turned in is Reuben Lamar Strong Jr. he likes pot and was an underage drinker, but I think he is 21 now. See if anything happens this time, probably not.

Reporting it won't necessarily get you results. It is unfortunate, but do keep complaining. It stinks that people have to have drugs to get by in life. Yes, it can become an addiction that is out of control, but the key is to NEVER start.

I reported something big to a BIG agency once, but nothing ever happened.

Please understand, it is EXTREMELY difficult to bust someone for simple use of meth. Generally their usage takes place in their own home or a place not easily observed by police. Not to mention the justice system does not have the room, time or money to house SO many users, which is why most are returned back to the street and placed on house arrest (you know, to keep using in their house) or my personal favorite work release when they haven't held a job in years!

I have experienced many sides of meth, as an officer dealing with users and dealers, and as a friend and family member to several people who are or were admittedly "hooked" and cannot escape meth's grip!

There are bad apples in every profession, but please do not get frustrated, and please continue to call in your information! I speak only for myself, but when I receive these kinds of tips they are taken seriously, there's just SO many of them they sometimes must be prioritized and sometimes there really isn't much that can be done as the law protects users from unlawful search and seizure just as much as it does the non-user law abiding folks. It may just take time and that person slipping up to get caught.
