What in the hell is up with our communities in Eastern Kentucky? 20 years ago kids drank and smoked a little pot, everyone knew the city police, sheriffs department and the local state cops, and things werent that bad. Now we seemingly have hundreds of "drug task forces," there are junkies everywhere, our tax dollars are being poured down the drain on these lost causes that appear to be getting worse, and no one knows who is in charge. Why arent the tax paying members of this area standing up and saying enough of this bullshit? We have let these whackos convince us if we just spend a few more millions on these losers "everything will get better," if we spend a few more million on undercover operations "everything will get better," How about we start spending the money we spend on junkies, child molesters and worthless trash, on the kids at the high school that make A's and B's and want to go to college? How about we laugh and walk off when some dirtbag dies from a self induced overdose? Lets start rewarding the good behavior and attempts to be better people instead of building "inspiration centers," that flood our community with junkies? How about when some scumball steals an airconditioner from a church or robs some old lady we form a vigilante group to handle the problem within the community instead of waiting for some government agency to spend 9 years building statistics and saying we need to invest our money in those that wont contribute in our society instead of those that do? Why have we become so stupid in our belief that those people who are not interested in being productive members of our community have more rights than those who are? I am really fed up with the situation around here and the stupidity that is creating mostof our problems. Lets start rewarding good behavior instead of supporting those people that have none.

I always said give them all the drugs they want and the problem would end its self,there a dropping like flys all around but when kids where raised with no values so they turn to drugs,(hard drugs) not a joint or a beer like when I growed up and you know we had law after us every weekend for small stuff,now they wont come unless somebody dies.Kids set up town and peddle pills and onbody sees nothing??Makes me wonder what there really doing??(In my opinion)

You could do the same thing with the speed limits,
drop all speed limits and let natural selection take care of those that drive too fast for their skills; problem is they can do harm to those exercising common sense or not driving outside their skills.
BIG part of the problem is runaway corporate America. In Kentucky, constitutionally, a corporation that ceases to be of benifit to the people is to have its charter revolked. Where is that concept gone? Nobody can do anything to stop the BIG PHARMA from flooding the market with these pills and pushing themselves unduely on the M.D.s to write these scrips?
IT is like we have been set up, as there is at least a 5yr low in police recruits and many supposed "state militia"/National Guard are halfway around the world forcing people to adhere to our idea of democracies that haven't got along for over 700yrs.
Truely this is what Washington, Jefferson and others warned about in getting involved in foreign entanglements and misadventures AND it was not even done constitutionally with a congressional declaration of war.

Constructive Fraud legally.
Judgment Spiritually or just another warning
to change our ways and stop being the puppet of
a supposedly zionist regeme that is stinking like
a spiritually dead corpse?(not that I like Amadinijad)

I truly believe our local law enforcement and medical proffesions are a large part of the problem, along with the people that choose to disavow evolution and blow money on the losers that want nothing but to stay in some pilled up state. Its really time for our community to start policing itself and correcting its own problems. Send the junkies to live in multimillion dollar compounds that tell them they just need some "help". People need to stand together and quit living with this bs.

start posting the doctor names
on the scrips from those selling
their pills and everyone can start
looking at the bottles to see if
someone they know has scrips from
FL or Pennslvania or?
Also if like I hear there is
several in a practice or on the
same street or clinic that can be
looked up and other names posted too.

What I hear is that there is one street
in Hollywood Florida where a bunch of
these pill pushers go and comeback with
enough pills to make 1,000 or more a month
selling them and keeping enough for their
own use?

To Local and Worried. I hope your child or grandchild never gets this diease. Because if it was your way they would have no where to go for help. I have meant many men at the Inspiration Center and they are very decent people. What they have is a diease, just like cancer or any other diease. It can be cured, with the help of our Higher Power and A.A. Morehead needs this Center for all of our young and older citizens, so they can learn to control there diease and become productive citzens. We all know theres a drug problem, thats why this Center is so very important. I'm sure everyone on here has a family member or friend that is addicted. The solution is for law enforcement to do there job and catch the people they know are dealing in drugs. And they know.
Disease is bunk

Calling it a dis-ease is just a cop out,
they are addicts that lack the strenght
of will to appeal to a higher power
to get off the junk and have some
moderation in all things.

Sure some have been abused and
self-abused but many folks learn how
to cope and get themselves away from that
crowd of "Friends"

Calling it a disease is just wrong
probably started by the medical community
so insurance companies would cover it
and they can make money off of
"treating it" but the treatment is actually
just a revolving door for return customers.

Dear Disease is bunk, You should read up and learn more about what you're writing about. Several doctors have confirmed addiction to be an allergy. Not all people are conflicted with it but many are. If you can't help people who have this disease,allergy, why help anyone with any disease? It's not easy to walk away from everyone you know, because almost everyone uses or drinks or smokes etc. A.A. is a nonfunded orginazation. It fully supports itself. I suggest checking out the Alcoholics Anonymous book from the library and reading The Doctors Opinion. William D. Silkworth, M.D.

All this is fed by a prison industry intent on locking up more and more Americans.

Drugs need to be treated as a social problem and not a criminal problem (except, of course, when drug use leads to criminal actions).

By making drug use criminal, we make drug users into criminals.

Come on, people. These are our neighbors, friends, relatives who have fallen under the power of something so powerful they can't get out from under it without help.

We need to figure out ways to help, not just throw them into jail and prison where they can learn to be criminals.

"IT fully supports itself" like a self-fulling prophesy, this idea or CONCEPT of dis-ease is set up as a excuse or to excuse the behaviour and their in lies the problems parasite-ed off of by the hellth industry. "I can't help it" is
a self defeating statement that puts the power outside and the ablity to treat the problem in someone elses hands, like a doctor or other government program or agency that does have money interests behind this INDUSTRY.

Saying substance abuse is a disaese is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
You can have a choice to take pills and drink.
You don't have a choice with diabetes or cancer or other REAL diseases.
Some educated idiot must have wrote that.
I gues you think child molesting is a disease too.
There is a thing called moral discipline.
Knowing the difference between right and wrong isn't some sort of medical break through.
It's COMMON SENSE.

Choice is a factor in most diseases. While it is true that diabetes has genetic links, it is also true that it may be controlled by diet and exercise. Most heart disease and cancers have choice factors, fats and fibers in the one case and smoking (KY is # 1 in lung cancer deaths/go big choke till you are blue)...The same is true of pain pill addiction...that is, you do have a choice, but it isnt all choice. Some folks are originally experiencing the pills because of an injury, but the pills become familiar and the therapy not a function of thought...ease of administration. After that, there are lots of factors, depression & social anxiety being some of those. In other words, drug addiction is like a disease, certainly a mental illness, requiring understanding of its complexities in individual cases.

I also think that big pharma brother makes a difference with their promotions to medical professionals and the conspiracy to constrain health care availability. If we all had easy access to the healthy side of the bread, then we might not have the conspiracy of pharma and underground economy.

Of course, the main missing link is the unlawfulness of use of marijuana. If mary jane could easily be found and openly used, then even the folks in pain really wouldnt care too much about the pain or the pills. The major danger of making alice B. available is that a world of munchie sufferers would produce more diabetics...vicious quadrangle, yes?

Clearfielder: You know what you are talking about. These young people have no idea that they will not be able to quit these drugs. When they start doing what everyone around them is doing, they think that they will just do it this once or maybe for a little while. Some can do that but not all because some are and some arenot addicts. They don't realize this. The addicts do need help, badly.

Diabetics are about 1/3 of the U.S population now, how can that be a weight only issue,
how about damages done from cheap oils that make us insulin resistant, pancreatic damage due to vaccinations pushed on everyone whether the
risk/benefit is justified all of this
is part of the human-resource exploitation industry.

The Supreme court is about to rule for immunity for big pharma for the problems their junk causes
as long as it is not a off label prescription,
like has been pushed for.

Telling addicts "they can't help it" is
like
telling teenagers to go ahead and sleep around
cause we know "you can't help it"
No chance for self discipline development thats
just unrealistic and imposing morals and other
such b.s.
we have too many jag offs as it is to
expand the telling of people
"you can't help it"
you need OUR exclusive patented treatment for
the rest of your life.... soon to be law too...

Just like many things, unless you have it you don't understand it. It is a diease and there is help if you want it. And A.A. is fully self supported. Go to a meeting.
