Follow this logic: these people stole merchandise to buy methamphetamine. Methamphetamine is very expensive because it is illegal. If meth were legal one dose woud cost less than a dollar. Ok. We can't stop or even slow down meth usage and production because the addicts LOVE their drug, the "war on drugs" has only increased the price and availability of meth. Why don't we try legalizing meth, allow addicts to pay 50 cents a dose, cut the mafia and home meth lab people out of the loop and free the addicts from having to steal to support their habits?
But we will never do this because deep down inside we REALLY don't believe in freedom. It irks us that meth addicts REALLY love their drug and are probably having a good time. What we really believe in is absolute control over others and as we increase the effort to control people we lose more and more control over our own lives. Soon the addicts will be breaking into YOUR house. The police have it ass=backwards Mark Montgomery boboberg@nyc.rr.com

Okay, follow this logic:

You clearly have spare time on your hands. At least enough to make posts such as the one you did.

Why don't you take that spare time and work an extra job. Take the money from the extra job and give it to drug addicts so they won't have to steal to support their habits.

More in clay county doing this stuff. Please get them out of my neighborhood. Brazil, Clay City, look hard and you find this going on everywhere! I am sick of seeing all this go on every weekend. The kids around here riding their bikes with backpacks..what do you think are in those? I know because I see the transactions daily. Anyone who drives on US 40 and the Kroger parking lot will see the kids do this and pass their baggies to other kids. Clay county wake up and lets keep getting this stuff out of our county, its getting out of hand. Call the police or let somebody know at city hall. Stand up and get this stuff out of the county.

Well, you may just have a point here. Also, if it were legal it would cut down on paranoid addicts thinking cops are after them. Therefor reduce the number of addicts running around strung out with guns. They maybe could then live a more "normal" life than they do now. Who knows, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try though. I think they should definately legalize marijuana. Heck it's safer than booze.

I know all about meth. I'm a recovering addict. I spent 2 years in prison. I'm in no way saying that it's ok. I just know the police are fighting a losing battle which is sad. In the process they are spending our tax dollars aimlessly. For every dealer/cook that I've known who has been busted at least 2 or more of their customers have started cooking. I saw on CNN or Fox, one of the news channels last night a story about legalizing drugs. So apparently theres quite a few of us out here with "mental problems". Its easy for you to say things because you have NO CLUE just how bad the problem is, and it's getting worse daily. I believe legalizing it may cause a drop in crime. Would I do it if it were legal.....NO!!!!

Drugs have separated families, The drug makes liars out of good people. They turn on the ones that love them dearly, and take up for other users, just like the articles above, Drugs alter their minds so much , that they think everyone else is out to get them, then they start thinking everyone is turning them in. Instead of going and getting help to get off these drugs, when everyone else around knows that they are using them, they choose to lie on other family members, and use them as a excuse to use their drugs. I personally would love to tell them where I wish they could stick those drugs.......

I used to know a guy who was so strung out on meth that he thought the satellites in the sky were following his every move. He also said the little green guys come out of trees at night and try to insert into our brains to control the world. I knew him before he became addicted to meth and he was completely normal. It just shows what this drug does to people. I dont agree with legalizing it, I do,however, think that there should be more rehabilitation opportunities out there.
