I am wondering when the Circleville PD will focus more on the drugs already on the streets? I see the raids and arrests, but when I read what the community has to say on topix, I realize they are only arresting the users... not the dealers. The users spend a few days in jail & are right back out on the street to quench their addiction. C'mon, how hard can it be to follow and watch the users once they get out? You know they're going straight to their dealer for the next fix! Why is this such a difficult task? We're losing friends and family by the dozens because of the pills and heroin epidemic. Nobody has ever overdosed or died from smoking marijuana, so why can't we put the effort and resources into getting the more dangerous drugs off the street?

I totally agree. Most of the stuff people post on here isnt reliable, and they talk about the people using, not selling. They need to focus more on the problem itself. Weed has never killed anyone, like you said. If only they would try harder to get the stuff that really kills people. I am tired of losing people close to me because they cant seem to be able to get rid of these drugs. There are far better ways to go about it than what people say on here.

Legalize the green, save Americans some tax dollars. Make more room in jail/prison for real criminals. Get the hard stuff off our streets. I never heard of any pothead stealing to get high.
legalize
