You all claim to know so much about the heroin problem, and cry the cops aren't doing anything, so ill ask, if you know there's a problem you know some names, has a single one of you spoken to an officer and reported exactly what you know, or are you just gossip hounds with no actual knowledge and idiots who think information travels magically? Those are the 3 choices, you've either reported or you're the latter 2. Nothing else exists. If you know a single fact and haven't shared it reliably you are a contributor, if you don't, then you don't know squat, you're simply gossiping. You can't cry and withhold info at the same time.

No, oxy is not heroin. Its a synthetic opiate. Heroin is a derivative of opium, and much less predictable than oxy. All are stupid to play with, but with heroin there is no clue from batch to batch what its strength is or what its cut with, that's mostly why more people die from heroin. The nature of oxy is nearly as sinister, its too addictive, but its NOT heroin. It was either a halfwit or a child said that, just because something acts the same doesn't mean it is, that's like saying k2 spice IS pot.

Just read the local paper. Again I read about people being arrested with syringes but not drug charge. I guess they keep it in a condom and swallow it if they get pulled over???
I say anyone who gets arrested with a needle should be held 72 hours after arrest. All fecies will be looked over by the arresting police officer. They do this, the word will get out.
A little motivation to get the drugs off the streets

Also, you dripping idiots, opium poppys aren't like pot, one plant isn't making squat, it takes a huge amount of flowers to reap any opium, nobody is getting away with that on this continent. It also takes a long season and specific soil ph, so many factors that its just impossible here on even a slightly meaningful level. One person would need an entire field just to feed their own habit. The governments policy of hands off foreign poppy growing is due to the fact that for afghanistanand few others its the average poor farmers sole income. Retraining, subsidy, or war on civilians is the only way to end production. Its not the growers making millions, they only just survive, its the processors, importers and distributors making all the money. And the cops.

Waterloo PD needs to do something about the Heroin problem in Waterloo. I have lost a lot of my friends because they r on Heroin. The cops are so worried about stupid bullshit that they are totally looking over the biggest problem in this town.
they can't babysit these junkies who go to rehab and get out just
in time for the next fix. peat and repeat over and over and over. but they can keep on patrolling to catch them when they steal you blind, not really much you can do with folks who don't help themselves. the bluesuits aren't the problem, just the junkies who can't lay it down. Only God can help them!

You are being silly and looking silly.... that has always been the #1 export... long before the wars love... and btw, our soldiers are not the only american there... there are more c,ontractors.... and they have loads of money to spend... they make more than our boys over there do. I grew up here and when I left to get away from people around me goingv down... heroin had just moved in big time... that was 1998. I haven't lost 'friends'b because sadly, I dismissed them. They exist only in memory, dead or not. most people never come back from where that crap takes you, no matter how hard they try. And, they are zombies, crying over a friends od while they dope themselves up to forget. Its not scumbags... it is heroin and the likes.. oxy, other pills, meth. Education, resistence and tougher laws for offenders are the only way out... dealing, distributing and transporting these drugs should be treated like premeditated murder inthe first.

Even when we treat murders as murders they still murder. Education as in "DARE" has not worked either. When will the masses figure this out, the laws don't work. People are free to do as they feel they need too and no law is going to stop them. It is human nature. What do we know from history, Prohibition didn't work except to create more organized criminals, and just like The Controlled Substance Act of 1970 has done as well. Legalize all of it, tax it, and you can then regulate it more effectively. Stop with all the more laws talk. We have enough laws and they do not work except to waste tax payers dollars on programs that do nothing but create more criminal and drug addicts.

Legalize it all? That's the answer? Seems like that would be add to the issue of junkies on the streets and crime. I agree with voter. You need to educate you kids before someone else with a needle of a line does. DARE might not work for a majority but it is education and teaching kids to say no. That really is what parents need to do. Drug counseling in schools though is a bit overboard. That is medical care and cannot be administered at schools. Heroin is a killer and meth too but it seems like most of you on here just care only about 'your friends' that keep dying and you want the police to do something? You do it! Intervention is the first step in a recovery process. Call up the loved ones and other (sober) friends and find them an option to get off the smack. Things don't go away because we don't like it... but we can change things when we get up off our butts and take a stand. You can stand with your friends and neighbors just as easily as you can stand against them.

Have you checked our prison population since the War on Drugs started? How many going are going to prison because of a dirty urine test? We can't keep drugs out of the prisons much less the general population.
