On a daily basis families bring their children to Mira Mesa Park to play and attended classes at the Recreation Center. A lot of organizations play soccer, football, basketball, softball and all kinds of other sports every day there. We have fairs, carnivals, even the circus recently at this park. Mira Mesa park is filled up every 4th of July with families enjoying the fireworks. However, as I found out personally, gang members are dealing drugs here. A teenage girl recently purchased drugs from a dealer in Mira Mesa park and almost died from an overdose. This park is accross the street from Mira Mesa High School and surrounded by homes. I remember a girl died in the park around about 6 years ago. The media reported drugs were suspected, but I don't remember hearing a report confirming it. My fellow residents of Mira Mesa, did you realize this about your park, one the best known and popular parks in San Diego?

I have lived in Mira Mesa for about 14 years and I know that park has been that way for a long time--I would never walk across it during the dark hours thats for sure.

COPs used to buzz the park (drive inside it) from time to time but I guess people griped about it so I don't think they do that anymore.

Good luck

The girl purchased the drugs during daylight hours shortly after school let out on a Friday. The park was full of people at that time. I've lived in Mira Mesa for over 11 years and suspected this was going on, but only late at night. This guy is dealing in broad daylight, right next to the Coke machine at the recreation center. A lot of the kids at the high school know about him. The police are aware of it and will hopefully bust this guy.

The police should set up a permanent police station next to the fire station or in the back of the teen center near the senior citizen building or even in the baseball field across from the park and the library. Mira Mesa needs a police station because I am hearing that these drug dealers are increasing in San Diego with the economy being bad. That rec center and all the Mira Mesa parks need to be watched by the police also. I am sure they will be able to catch one each day. Look for people exchanging money or taking out their wallets or looking around in their surroundings too much. The undercover police can probably walk a drug sniffing dog with them to the park. The police dog can take a walk and at the same time bust drug dealers. We do not need this crap in our community.

You should have secretly taken a picture of the drug dealer with your camera phone and turn that in to police. Anyone suspecting drug dealing in the parks should have your camera phones ready and take pictures. Just make sure that the dealer doesn't see you taking a picture. Pretend you are taking a picture of a friend with the dealer in the background.

I lived in MM since the late 80s and never saw drug dealings nor gang members. But I do suspect that they are there and happening. The population in Mira Mesa has changed over the years, I noticed. The MM area is getting more diverse. First, it was the whites that lived there, then Filipinos, then Vietnamese, then people from India, etc. I noticed an influx of Hispanics and Blacks this past year so really Mira Mesa has become a good mix of all kinds of ethnicity. Then it is going back to more Whites again in certain areas. It may cycle around. Mira Mesa is in the dead center of San Diego and convenient to go to the left, top, right and bottom of the map. That's why many people want to live here. See map at http://www.mira-mesa-homes-for-sale.com/map.g... . Mira Mesa is a community and probably has more people than the entire city of Poway. Mira Mesa is like a city, therefore it needs its own police station near the fire station or near Mira Mesa Blvd. where the teen center is. When you have this many people in the community, it becomes a haven for bad people visiting the area. Mira Mesa needs police protection 24/7. Whenever I see a police car patrolling around, I always thank them in my mind. There are too many children at MM at risk from these bad people.

When i went to Mira mesa high school i could pretty much get marijuana or ecstasy any time i wanted i didn't need to go out of my way to find it. It was actually a lot easier then getting alcohol. Kids have no idea what they are taking with drugs like ecstasy it could be mixed with anything. We probably need to rethink the way we look at drugs instead of making the police work harder we should legalize some of the safe drugs i don't know any that's died from smoking to much pot, if people could buy pot legally for example then they become responsible for what happens to it, how its used and who its used buy. If u buy drugs at the store u know for sure what it is and how to take it properly. Drug dealers would be put out of businesses and kids wouldn't be able to buy drugs them self's. The police can take care of other problems and gangs wont have any more drug money to buy guns. Drugs are not going to go away just because the law says so, if u want to regulate something u need to take control of it the government needs to take responsibility and control the drug trade market then they can properly regulate it. Then there would be no drug dealers in our parks, no more drug money to fund gangs, someone will have the responsibility to make sure our kids are not using them and it would be properly taxed and people do spend more money on drugs then food. Now that i think about it there is a sign that says "police" in the same building as the epiccenter whats that all about?

There is another park located in Mira Mesa by Sanburg Elementary that has drug selling and drinkin going. And to top this one off there is an all male group home across from the park, which one of the residents sells pot to the local high school kids. We really need to look out for the the younger children that live in this area.

ATTENTION:

Do you know that there is probably one or more MEDICAL MARIJUANA Dispensaries in MIRA MESA?????

The parents of teens in Mira Mesa have to pull together to get rid of them or every TEENAGER in Mira Mesa with no debilitating illness will have a Medical Marijuana ID Card and full legal access to marijuana. They can get a medical marijuana ID for just claiming to have aches, pains and insomnia.

There are reports that teens who are 18-19 years of age in Mira Mesa have started going to the Medical Marijuana Dispensary to get their Medical Marijuana ID cards once they graduate from high school.

Mira Mesa is creating a YOUNG generation of potheads who will develop psychosis and mental issues someday if this is abused. As a parent of teens and children, you need to be aware of WHAT is HAPPENING to your child. If you have a male teen in Mira Mesa, chances are he already has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA ID card in his possession! You will be shocked to know that many teenagers in Mira Mesa have one.

Please save your children from this insanity and BAN Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Mira Mesa, Miramar and Sorrento Valley. Talk to your politicians about this.

Protect your children.

On Saturday, May 7, 2011, there was a parent (father) outside of Target petitioning because he was concerned about the marijuana dispensaries being so close to the high school in Mira Mesa. Thanks to that concerned parent. I know many Target customers may have walked by you but you taking precious time out of your life to go out there to petition and save the children is heroic. You are a hero for standing up for what is right. Wish there were more like you who have the courage and time to stand up to what is right for our children.

Beware of the female petitioner outside of Vons Mira Mesa. She will sell you to sign a petition about another political issue regarding contractors, non-contractors and unions. Then after you sign that petition, she will tell you about the medical marijuana zoning petition so that the dispensaries can open up and do business anywhere such as near the schools.
Therefore, know what you are signing. There are multiple petitions and you could be signing the wrong one or if there is cheating, the petitioners may copy your information from another petition to the medical marijuana zoning petition. Don't sign any petition if the person has three petitions on her.

I believe my neighbor may be dealing heroin and or trading sex for drugs. I live on flanders rd. I have seen her and her friends come and go at all hours of the day and night. I have seen her and friends in her car parked right on the street actually smoking it off foil in her car or friends car and have seen her come home falling over damn near. Ive witnessed multiple counts of different men picking her up and going around the corner and returning shortly after. I would assume to trade sex acts for drugs, to get high and or to sell it. Ive seen her waiting and meeting people outfront and hading things through windows. shes either really dumb or really high and doesnt realize how obvious it is or just doesnt care and thinks she is invincible. she has lived in my neighborhood for years with her mother. i dont think her poor mom really has a clue and probably just thinks she has alot of friends coming to the door and meeting her outside. I know her full name and address and have submitted annonymous tips before to police. any ideas people?
