Drug rehab can take the form of behavioral therapy, medication, or a combination of both. A number of considerations determine which therapy will work best

get the cops out of places not needed. seems they are to busy trying to give traffic tickits.Weed never hert no body. Its the other crap. The Md state pigs need to get there head out of their butts and get these other drugs off the streets and out of the projects where they mainly are. They need to go after the users more than the dealers. No body to sell to meens no more buisness. seems the cops are just trying to make money more than help.

i live in garrett county.i say marijuana should be legal again.it is alot easier on the body over both alcohol and tobacco.it is ridiculous what charges you get up here for some marijuana.it has also been proven that once it leaves your house after it being busted that some of the marijuana comes up missing.i say work on the harder drugs.i have been told that its easier to get ahold of something harder than marijuana now days.some of the cops here think theyre on a tv show the way they act.while others make you wanna turn good.

Marijuana is only half the problem people, the big problem is marijuana is a gateway drug, sure enough if you have tried it you will or already have moved on to bigger drugs! Good for those of you who haven't but in most situtations it leads to much more complicated problems !!!
I feel, it leads to theft(in most case's they are most likely stealing to aquire the drugs or the money to obtain the drugs, lying, degrading themselves in one of several ways !!!, the list could go on forever! Or in the most serious of conquences...the end result could be death and this is truth people!! I have experienced the loss of a loved one, my brother because of ignorance,drugs and alcolhol. Tell me one good thing drugs and alcohol accomplish that a good night's sleep couldn't cure or the help of some "higher power", council or just a good ole tear jerking moment and I will leave it alone!
The cops would not have to focus nearly as much on this epidemic if the ones who are reading this topic and responding to it with negativity,instead of in a more positive way, like quitting the drug(s) totally and going out in the public to offer help to those who have the problem !Neighborhood Watch, I am thankful for it! In most cases all it takes is lending an ear to listen or advice to soomeone who is lost in the strongholds of addiction!
If you or someone you know would like information to help you or someone else...contact me at stephaniebittinger@yahoo.com

oh god stephanie. Go back to church and stay there. This is 2011. Weed is not a gateway drug and cops would prefer criminals on pot anyday to drunk ones. Garrett county is a right wing heaven for christian zealots and rednecks. As the saying goes 'arrive on vacation, leave on probabation'. Stay clear of Garrett if you are not a christian fundo.

Pretty sure it's more important for cops to go after those pesky tokin' potheads by the parks than it is to arrest drunk woman beaters headed home from bars. You can't drive two miles through Garrett co. without encountering a liquor store or bar. But clearly the real concern is kids lighting up in the Walmart parking lot and causing the Taco bell to run out of burritos. Those damn kids smokin' the reefer.

Seeing someone fall into the trap of addiction is painful to experience. Not only will you see changes in the addict’s behavior, but you will also feel that the person you once knew is slowly drifting away, turning into a person you no longer are familiar of.This is the ideal place to address your addiction problems. Please call 888-513-6392.. open 888-513-6392 open 8:30am
