Don't always believe what you read. All this because my son brought home what he thought were flower seeds. I helped him plant them and next thing I know I am being accused of being a drug dealer and being part of a drug ring. But of course the police leave that part out because they never felt the need to question my child and only wanted to bring a nightmare into my home and let my son now walk around with the feeling of guilt that he got his mom in trouble.

I think they need to crack down more on Bedford, Everett & Saxton areas. They are extremely over populated with drugs - both dealers and users. They need to do the SERIOUS police work involved with the crimes though, not mothers who planted seeds that came home with her son....how about the people robbing places to buy more drugs or the people that are on the streets selling it to our kids! Go after the REAL threat!!! Heroin, Crack, Cocaine, Meth....Those are SERIOUS!!! Those are drugs that are killing kids everyday! Marijuana has a much lower death rate...Ive never heard of any! Worry about the real threat and protect my kids!!

As a former resident of Bedford I personally know that there are alot of drugs in Bedford county but the thing is you would be surprised at who is selling them, yes west pitt street is known for being the "ghetto" or whatever they call it now but really you can get drugs from pretty much anyone espicially the "good kids" the top athletes heck it's not only an individual thing now it is becoming family businesses...
Yes Bedford is overly populated with drugs and I used to think that it was pointless for the police to just be punishing, what seemed like, the pot dealers but really if you clean up the "little" guys first then the "big" guys that come in will, hopefully, see that they have no one to sell the other crap to. So maybe the police have a plan but aren't disclosing it to the community, that would really be stupid.
I personally think there needs to be searches of vehicles that come off the turnpike in Bedford and in Breezewood. That would stop a lot of drugs from coming into our homes.

Only thing is, while they are worrying about the mom with a pot seed, there are people at the park selling crack to 13 yr olds. They do this kind of stuff out in the open because they know that the cops are too busy chasing the lesser evils to worry about REAL crime. This is all happening right under their noses...and it isn't just Bedford County. Its all over the place. Until the cops handle it in a different manor and crack down on the REAL drugs, then the problem will always be out of control. People may think it makes sense to go after the little guys in this, but as Ive learned from a few of my high school friends that have turned their lives around since drugs,... the lil guys information is very limited. Those big drug lords are not going to trust a soccer mom or a pothead. They have bigger and badder people on their side. The police are wasting time and money on those lil potheads. Get the big guys and then there will be no one to bring the drugs in.. Seems like a win win to me.

I do like your idea about the checking of cars off the turnpike though, but that would just make them take an alternate route...so ultimately they couldnt do it in a long term sense..but to do periodic checks would not be a bad idea... on ALL roads as they do the sobriety checkpoints. I think there may be an issue with illegal searches though. If people arent willing to let their cars be searches then the cops cant search without probable cause. Maybe have some dogs on hand for it and let them walk up to the cars with the cops...if the dog acts 'funny' then that I think would be probable cause.
