I'm starting this discussion to better understand. I have thought about this for awhile and I have came up with no answers that work. This is a discussion not to point fingers at anyone or place blame. It just seems that jailing people who buy and sell drugs is not working. Building more jails and putting all that money in the correctional system is not working and the just say no slogan is a joke. So people lets discuss it. I want to hear from all sides. If you have never done drugs or if you have done drugs and quit. If you are still using what would it take for you to quit. Is it a lack of choses such as no jobs or hopelessness.

You would first have to get rid of the shady cops and social service workers that are intertwined in the drug mess....they keep it going not only that but gtown cops are the laziest I e ever seen!! Get out there and actually bust these idiots!!

You can start with Leah and Phillip Campbell

For me it took the threat of losing my kids and winding up on the street. And I got pregnant again and am due soon. I'm afraid there is no true solution to this problem. Once a person reaches that point it is hard to fix the damage that's been done. Intervention needs to be made before they start using. Studies to identify at risk teens should be done and hard core curb tactics set in place before they ever do it for the first time.

You know that feeling you get in the first few seconds of a free fall on a roller coaster. That's what heroin feels like immediately. That's a hard thing to quit not only because of how good it makes you feel but also because the "sickness" feels ten times as bad as the good will ever feel. Reversing it at that point is almost impossible. And when someone gets to that point nobody can make them do anything. They will only quit if they want to.

The answer isn't stopping it after it's started. It's stopping it from starting in the first place and that my friends starts the day your child is born.

The drug problem seems to keep growing and growing.. It is everywhere you turn.The sad part is that our children are growing up with this in their world, us as parents need to make sure our children know the effects it can cause and hope for the best that they decide not to EVER get involved with it...

Also a way we could start the process of stopping the drugs in our town is by finally putting Phillip and Leah Campbell in jail.. They keep running and hiding. They never stay in the same place long....

So true it's estimated that nearly 4000 children from ages 12-17 years old use drugs for the FIRST time EVERYDAY. This is insane this needs to be a top priority

Thanks recovering I'm so glad you answered I have posted this on three separate forum and you are the first to put it out there. I agree prevention is the most effect tool but what we are doing is not even slower the progress.

I thought if you lock a person up for so long it has to finally change their behavior right? It's just been within the last year that I've looked for the right answer and have found none. I've talked to people who use and they seem more confused than me. I've ask what is so good about using you would risk your freedom and your life for? What is worth not caring for your children for? What would help you to quit? What would be proper punishment? The ones I've spoken too haven't had the answers so I posted on here. People this effects us all in one way or another by the laws being passed or how the tax dollars are being used.

Drug problem will never be fixed. It is too lucrative for all parties including the police. Nobody cares if a few junkies fall over dead when their bank account is full.

If the laws could be changed and all money's ceased went to toward education and treatment and not toward law enforcement and correctional could that fix some of the corruption? Would that make a difference?

I think the best way is for the government to keep putting poisonous drugs out there for ppl to overdose on really quickly. Like the flesh eating stuff that's coming over via Russia. If you're willing to chance dying that way, you're beyond hope anyway. Drastic measures.

The education and treatment angle might make a difference. Instead we use the money for Police to buy tanks for some reason. The PRC has the Death Penalty for all of the following.

The PRC is NOT a crime free country.

Need to find the source of the drugs and cut it off. Sounds like the police is the only ones not aware of the Campbell's. Maybe need a little vigilante justice since nobody would miss them anyway.

The source of the drugs will never be cut off. It just gets replaced by some other d-bag. No one should risk their safety and their freedom just to get some losers off the street that will be replaced in two weeks. You are much more valuable to society being productive than taking out some half wit that their is an infinite supply of.
