How can these people live in Government Housing? I thought they did police checks out there, to keep the drug dealers out.

The heroin problem in the city and in the county has been ignored by the BPD & the Sheriffs Office for years. It has grown and now is out of control. Lives have been lost and many families have been affected. Our children and grandchildren are being hurt by this epidemic. Will you listen now BPD and Logan County Sheriffs Office?

First of all it was a problem before Obama. Secondly, if you do some research, you will see where it is coming from. The CIA and Special Forces are in Afganastain guarding the poppy plants and over seeing its growth. The CIA is bringing it into the USA to fund their black projects. It has been going on for years they have just changes locations. That is where 80% of the heroin comes from.

The BPD and the LCSD have done an awesome job since they have joined forces since Kunze left! This could have been nipped in the bud 5+ years ago if they would have been able to combine resources!! Keep up the good work!

Where are you getting your information? They may say that is what is going on, but I have yet to see proof of that. This is the same thing that went on during Vietnam, just different location. You are completely entitled to your opinion and I have mine.

Felony 4 and 5 possession charges are no different than what was happening with Kunze. Why is it we only get the little boys? Why do we only hear about heroin busts and not coke? Coke is just as prevalent. Could it be because coke is the rich folks drug of choice?

This the same song and dance they've been playing for the last 75yrs and nothing has changed. These drugs are controlled by bigger fish than these cheesy little junkies of the week. Why is there 10 times more hard sh/t around now oxymorons, pillbillies,methfreaks, etc. What will the Logan Co Drug Task Farce do in Nov. when Nohio vote for Medical Marijuana?

It is called first hand knowledge. I've seen it happen, I've seen the funds that is allocated to do this. I don't speak of something I don't know anything about.

Check out the CIA involvement in te infux of crack into LA under Reagan, you only have to read up on the Iran/Contra hearings. This has been going on for years. Where is the heroin coming from? I mean where are the poppies grown and what people rely on it for their main cash crop? You may have knowledge but you don't have the big picture, and you need to question who has supplied your knowledge. The politics of opiates is complex and as nefarious as the drug, itself. Karsai is plain and simply a drug lord on a similar level with Noriega. This is a bit of information that might help:
For many years it became a moderate norm to dismiss the old history of CIA sponsorship of the heroin trade; the talk sounded too conspiratorial, and people felt America had put that sort of thing behind it. But it happened, and it's still happening. It happens not because the CIA directly grows poppies or sells or transports heroin. Rather, it happens because the CIA's modus operandi of fighting anti-American ideological movements by bribing and protecting local warlords whose power is based on their ability to marshall mercenary armies, rather than on broader popular support, inevitably privileges the kinds of short-term, high-revenue, low-labour industries warlords like to engage in: drugs, gems, human trafficking, illegal rainforest logging and the plunder of antiquities.

Mr Yglesias has expressed support elsewhere for the idea of bribing warlords as an alternative to intensive counterinsurgency and state-building in Afghanistan. Stuff like this is the reason why bribery is a bad idea. It's bad because it's bad for Afghanistan. That Afghanistan is the world's largest producer of opium is in large measure a result of the fact that America has been "sponsoring favored poppy entrepreneurs" there for 30 years.

The DEA can't control the flow of heroin between Atlanta/Dayton/Detroit, how can the tide coming from the mideast be stopped when the CIA, along with Blackwater is virtually using opiates production as leverage in a country as corrupt and poor as Afghanistan? The DEA does not have a working relationship with the DEA, and it is easy to see why.

So you may have some first hand experience, or knowledge of poppy fields being burned but for every field that is burned there are many being protected.
