Here is what I have seen having lived in the middle of West Virginia for 5 years and now here. Drugs kill people fast. They get high and they are out of reality. I deal with this horrible issue in my own family. It does not matter how many die around them, or how neglected their children are, or where they sleep or if they eat. The drug is the God of their choosing. But it is like most epidemics or infectious disease outbreaks. The strongest survive but the weak ones die. They self destruct. We will always have a part of our society that is either not able or not willing to contribute. We have to take care of them. The problem is the scales are tipping to far. We have too many. At some point middle class folks will not have the money to pay for them. In 1935 FDR put the social security act in place. It was a good thing but it has gone too far. Back then people were expected to work on roads and building dams for the money they were given. Now we have generations of people who don't know you are supposed to work or be independent. Take away a mans self worth and you have a usless human being. Everyone needs to feel they are doing something worthwhile...........or they become very expensive pill heads who leave their children to grandparents to raise. 25 million of us are doing it right now. Hope I live long enough to see her through. There is a reason women dont have babies over 40. Well, thanks for listening and like the sign says........KEEP PRAYING LEE COUNTY

don't understand how they spend years in jail without drugs and come back out and start again. Beyond my comprehension. One thing I know for sure, they don't care about their families in the least. I hate drugs. There is no helping them. You don't think families try their hardest to help them??? They don't care in the least who they are hurting,
