well,I've lived in red bay my whole life until the last 5 years and I'd have to say that the drug problem here is as bad or worse as anywhere else. I've lived in a few different places for work and have seen the drug problems out in the open but in red bay it's 'hidden' so to speak. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what somebody is up to or when someone is high. And it's like the police just don't care. In fact,most of the local police in the area not just red bay are the same way. They recently had a big drug bust with several hundred arrests but don't let that fool you. They probably won't have another one for another 5-10 years. And most of the people are already out makin and selling it again I'm sure. As much as I would like to see this area of the state grow,in my opinion,If u are concerned about your family and the issues that drugs and alcohol and the pressures that it will have on them will do;I say stay where you are. Because all the world needs is another innocent person fall victim to all of this mess that is abundant here.

You have no clue... That's a fitting name for someone who has no clue about how the judicial system works. Law enforcement did arrest almost 200 people in a roundup that took almost two years to work and gather all the evidence necessary to apply for that many warrants. If they don't have another one for a long time it would probably be due to the lack of manpower. Those people arrested went to jail and then bonded out and we t right back to their dope most of them ended up. Getting rear rested in the two months following the bust and having their bonds revoked. And staying in jail a while. While others went on to court to have their charges either dismissed or lessened by the DA. Law enforcement did their job. It's at the next level you should be looking into. But your right the drug issues are bad here and never get better because its just easy to obtain. That's why they say to give anoynomous tips to your sheriff offices or police departments. But I guess I wouldn't trust some.

Drug problem in Red Bay worse than anywhere else? Not physically possible. After all, New York City has more than 600,000 registered drug addicts. There's not 600,000 people in this area.
Even if you went per capita (percentage of people and not overall number), it's still not possible that this place has it worse than anywhere else. After all, as has already been written, it's "hidden" (it's not). Hidden drug problems can't make for a worse problem than out in the open in your face problems. Take on Missouri if you want to understand per capita problems.
All that said, yes, Red Bay has a drug problem, and most of the time it's prescription medication or methamphetamines. Yes, Law Enforcement does do what it can to contain the problem, but the way law enforcement works requires some evidence to go stomp the heads of those that are problems. You can't just rip doors off of homes because you think there may be a problem... and most drug addicts are not so stupid as to make it well known to all. It's a catch 22. They still manage to do what they can and sometimes make large busts. More often, they make small busts just because that's how it works.
Red Bay has a problem, but so does Ohio. In the end it's about the same here as it is everywhere. If you want to find the place that has no drug problems, there are caves in the Appalachian foothills in Ohio. Live there. Otherwise, learn to deal with modern life and get some coping skills that work.
If you still would like to move to Red Bay or have already, welcome to town. The food at 4th street's grill is fantastic. Be sure you try it sometime. Mr. J's is also pretty darn spiffy. Say hey on Memorial Day if you would. The people are mostly friendly enough and usually intelligent enough to tolerate.
