The Methamphetamine problem is made worse by judges who release first time and often repeat offenders back into society without long term treatment and follow up. The odds of anyone kicking this habit without treament are very, very small and those with treatment, the outlook is not promising. Judges need to come to the realization that meth abusers are highly likely to continue their use and be a threat to society. They need to be incarcerated to protect themselves and us.

something i just added to another forum,
we have a number of families that have mortgaged the house or worse (so i've been told?) because of their gambling habit,
still, this is nothing compared to the methamphetamine problem in Pawhuska.
One loser in town addicted to meth, has children by multiple women (didn't bother to marry them) and drops by with his mother and sister to threaten the 'wives' when their welfare check arrives. Yeah the same welfare check to feed his kids and put a roof over their heads.
Then he, momma and sister all go to the Barlesville Casino together with what ever is left over after their meth buy.
I wish i was joking but its sadly a true story.
