since when is heroin just a big problem now...its been a problem for the last 6 years especially in Waynesboro..not shocking!! If the task force worried more about the hard drugs heroin, cocaine, pcp and such instead of worrying about the weed..this county would be better off!!

There is no difference in any you mentioned, they are all illegal. Do the crime spend the time. Trouble is they make more money selling drugs than most people make in their lifetime and when they get caught they spend very little time in jail. Then backout selling again.

could someone enlighten me as to when and who passed the law regarding the illegal use of a communication device relating to drug charges?
i was looking for it in the PA code and couldn't find it. no luck with google either. i would like to relate it to a school essay i am working on.

I'm not sure by who or when exactly it was passed, but I do know that 6-7 years ago a person I knew of was charged with the same thing. So it's at least been since then.

The problem can't be solved by more law enforcement, stronger interdiction, etc, because those are the very things that CAUSE the problem. To whatever extent the effort actually does interdict the flow of drugs, the price of the drugs here increases, which increases the incentive to smuggle and sell drugs, to accept or give bribes, to murder competitors (or worse, law enforcers), etc. Its a losing proposition, where every dollar spent to impede the trade ends up, instead, increasing the profits to successful narcotraffickers....while the unsuccessful ones fill our prisons, at continued, perpetual expense to us.
Prohibition creates the profitable black market from which ALL these problems arise. And Prohibition doesn't really stop drug use (its ONLY stated objective) anyway. People who are not deterred from using drugs by the certainty of health damage, and substantial risk of death are also not deterred, surprise, surprise, by the more remote and uncertain risk of arrest, prosecution and jail.
It would be a crying shame if the United States can't get its puritanical head out of the sand, and end prohibition, before we find a failed state FAR more dangerous to us than Afghanistan or Iraq right on our southern border.
