Those stupid people over at War are really Stupid.

Question: Do people really think they can get away with breaking the law?

"CRIME DOES NOT PAY!"

A drug bust will be coming to Gary Hollow Very Soon.

t's not so much the drugs..It's the people that use or take the drugs.

The people that sale drugs don't put a gun to peoples heads and make them buy...The people buy on their own.

Remember, Drugs will aways be here...Just Say NO!

u will never be able to get rid of drugs on the streets drugs been there and gonna continue to be there its like the air u breathe never goin anywhere. To really put a end to drugs is to get the drug users getting the drug dealer not gonna do anything but create more dealers. sad to say but its true

You ppl sit there and insult ppl that abuse drugs, but the truth is you don't REALLY know what the hell you're talking about. Drug addiction is a disease and just like diabetes or even cancer it is a critical illness that affects people both physically and mentally. Before you judge these people and look down at them like they choose to do the drugs. Try being educated on drug addiction..You'll learn that it's not just a stupid act ppl choose to do, but it's a disease that most addicts need a dr.'s help to control and eventually get off of the drugs. INSTEAD of just insulting these poor ppl, learn what they are going thru and what they go thru without the drugs. You'll be SURPRISED on how hard it is for the ppl with this MAJOR PROBLEM...Remember these are ppl too, just like you, they just have a serious and sickening disease and instead of ppl turning their backs on them, they need support. It would help a great deal if ppl would show some consideration and mercy for them.

The shit of it is now we have to feed them, house them , and provide medical care to these DIESEASED PEOPLE !!! Put their mangy asses out on the side of the road and pick up trash or something beneficial to the community...The one thing you got right in your defense of these "POOR PEOPLE" is that "IT" is a MAJOR PROBLEM and the only way to deal with that is to make them pay for ruining our county through whatever means it takes! I'LL just eat my bologna sandwiches at home !

No it isn't like cancer or diabetes ! Those are things that just happen and you have no choice in the matter. Smoking, drinking and drugs are something you either choose or don't choose to do . And why would anyone feel sorry for them when they choose to do this. I have compasion for those who do have true illnesses, such as kidney failure, heart problems, cancer,etc....not the ones who wanna get high and escape reality and next thing you know they are lieing, stealing and killing for a fix...nothing means anything to them, not even their own children or family......they get treated like crap and go through hell thanks to the ones who get this so called disease that they choose to do !You are acting like something was wrong with them at birth or all of a sudden their bodies go crazy and have to have that fix and they did nothing to cause them to be addicted...I feel for their families and friends and and saddened that a soul is lost to drugs , but I don't feel sorry for someone because they decided to feed there body crap until they get to the point they will do anything and everything to see that it gets it. Now if people who do this would put even one tenth of this into taking care of their kids , then we wouldn't be hearing or seeing how all these kids have to pay the price and go through hell thanks to mom and dad wanting a cure for their disease !

Disase my @ss !you become a drug addict on your own diabetics or cancer you have no control over . It's people like you that try to excuse your drug habit that makes me sick.to even put yourself in the place of someone that has an illness that they can't help is a shame .

I myself have seen firsthand what drugs do to otherwise "good" people....It is NOT a DISEASE! I have seen cousins pawn their childrens' toys, sell their ONLY transportation for $200.00 then complain they'd work if they had a ride, or even just sit and lie for pity to get money from those too naive to get that they are feeding their addiction more by lending them money!
I CAN'T tell you how many times I've wanted to turn them in so they'd get help...but then I also see the "help" they get! Yeah right, all the users will tell you that Methadone and Zaboxin (I don't know the spelling, just spelling as it sounds!) are just a free high that taxpayers allow to be given by the govt.
There was a WV (senator, I think) who wanted mandatory random drug tests to be enforced on anyone who received any govt. assistance (stamps, med card, compensation, etc.) but the bill was dropped because some "idiot" felt it discriminatory against those receiving assistance! True! Look it up! Now you tell me, how is it a worker HAS to drug test if asked, no choice, but a lazy bum (unless REALLY legitimately disabled or just in a bad way for a while) may "feel bad" if we ask them to? Just stating an opinion. But please, if you ARE on drugs, your kids, family, friends, they ALL deserve better.
There is a better life for you, I promise you this! I'd rather know that if I go out w/my child they may think I'm not "cool", but they're not sad because other kids have more or they don't have dopeheads for parents. Have some self-respect and dignity, God loves everybody but all decisions are yours in life. Nobody FORCES you to choose the wrong ones.

I am sorry but people with cancer and diabetes don't come in your house and steal you blind. Also you need not compare drug addiction to cancer or diabetes the people with these diseases don't have a choice about their disease DRUG ADDICTS DO!
Sick of footing the bill

Drug addiction nor alcoholism is a disease!
A disease is something you're afflicted with unexpectedly and without choice.. I, myself am sick and tired of the excuses.. You had a choice prior to snorting, shooting, popping and drinking that first time. Now they have these so called methadone and suboxone clinics that do nothing more but fuel the fire. I say drug test all recipients of government assistance, I'm tired of footing the bill for druggies, alcoholics and illegal immigrants! The government needs to get off their sorry ass and do something.
