Doesn't surprise me at all. Salem has long been known for having a lot of alcoholics and drug users. Its part of the culture there and the cops even tolerate it. They just show up and pour booze down the drain while going easy on the kids.

By the way, I was born in Salem and lived there about 25 years. So I seen a whole lot about the alcohol problems around Salem. Grown ups having parties for kids that were my age at the time and allowing them to get drunk while they kept their keys. Adults who were in their 50s and 60s covering up for their alcoholic kids. Same with the meth heads around town including one who just got out of prison a couple years ago and now is back in prison. Meth heads killing someone over a few bucks. Yeah, some real winners there. Every place has it problems but Salem seems to take pride in alcoholism, drug abuse, and cops and lawyers that cover for the drug trade. Including some that participate in the drug trade. Just like some in the local business community of Salem around the square that have been involved in drugs in the past. There are plenty of people who know about the cops busting parties in the past and then telling the kids the pour the junk down the drain and no one will be arrested. Its the culture of that town. A culture of vast corruption and that's why Salem will never grown to the point that it gets anything but minimum wage fast food jobs and retail junk. Employers don't hire and won't hire a bunch of stoners and drunks.
