It's amazing how many old timers are hooked. I talked to one guy who said his wife had been smoking that crap for 25 years.

end the use of the evil drug known as meth. it makes people violent, aggressive, psychotic, sociopathic, and paranoid. Mix that with chain smoking of cigarettes and alcohol and you have a explosion waiting to happen.

can or can't put into my own body make me more violent, aggressive, psychotic, sociopathic, and paranoid than any chemical ever could.

Even "bad" drugs are better dealt with through the medical system rather than the criminal justice system. Lock up the "bad guys" for breaking into my house rather than for being high or intending to get their friends high. Cocaine is a rather effective topical analgesic.

i hope the SCPD busts the meth cookers at the Mission Gardens Apartments -- managed by The John Stewart Company -- soon. they are terrorizing the other law abiding residents. i am sure they have more than an ounce of meth on them. Mission Gardens awaits the help of the SCPD with great anticipation.

According to another Sentinal article, there was a fatal shooting at Mission Garden Apts. earlier this year. Sounds like a good housecleaning is needed.

Becky,

We are having the deadliest year in a decade because of drug related killings and you are promoting drug use?

Please leave. You are not welcome in Santa Cruz.

Keep it up SCPD! Let's send the message that this is not the place to set up meth labs and push drugs.

I agree with Becky. Why not focus on violent crime? The jails are full of drug related offenses... and who pays for them? So what if they want to take drugs?
Nothing Wrong With Meth

Fix Prop 36:

Prop 36 should be modified to only include no violent substances. The problem is it gives users and abusers multiple chances of freedom with little or no punishment.

Meth = Mind Altering Addictiveness, Theft, Rape, Killing, Gang Banging
Crack = Same As Above
Coke = More Socially Acceptable But Nevertheless Coke Heads Are Just As Bad

We need to classify drugs as to its relation to societal danger.

It would be nice to say meth and crack = non violent offenders. But no. Addicts of these dangerous drugs will likely lead a life of crime and despair. The only way to stop it is to go to the top and lock up everyone that has made one red sent from peddling this crap in our communities. Forever. And treat and monitor the addicts for the better part of whatever may remain in their lives. Limited exceptions are explained below.

Prop 36 should allow offenders of these drugs to stay out of jail on the following conditions:

First, give hard core evidence of any and all individuals they have purchased and done the drug with. Second, remain clean for the probationary period plus five years. Third, the addict (MUST) complete court ordered drug rehab including required monthly follow ups for counseling and testing (including a hair sample). Why you ask? Because hair acts as a time line. No hiding behind chemical masks that can be consumed prior to testing. Fourth, the above is required during the probationary period plus five years for all illegal drugs. Yes that includes our beloved May Jane. Once an addict always an addict.

Dealers: No prop 36 exemption. To reduce jail time dealers must give up every person they have sold to and every person that profited from the sale of the drug. And then they must still follow the same set of conditions listed above for the non-violent users. All Four. No Exceptions.

The change would allow law enforcement to easily climb the ladder and catch the wholesalers and drug lords that control the gangs and trash who continue to peddle this crap in our community. Oh and if someone lies they get the electric chair. Real evidence only. Joking though. If they lie they are protecting the drug dealers and the spend every day in jail, in protective custody solitary confinement until they give up their dealer.

Why Coke you ask? I’m tired Coke whores in the local bar scene asking me to buy them a bump. Who am I Willy Wonka? I am not your candy factory. Stop trying to steal my wallet so you can buy yourself a bump. Don't get me wrong a lot of girls that do coke are hot. Yeah I said that but every guy agrees with me. If you are looking at your partner and they say thats not true just mention the name of a hot hollywood actress and chances are he thinks she’s sexy. And at least 50% of the time you will have named an anorexic coke whore. It's sexist and rude but in order for me to convey my message we all must be honest to admit we are all part of the problem. Men who choose hot women who do blow are guilty of being an enabler and perpetuating unobtainable body image women and girls. But the looks go fast and you end up with a Coke Whore.

What happens when hard core drug users run out of money? Think Whitney Huston "I don't do crack, crack is for poor people". Not using but paying leaves you Bobby Brown begging to free base.

Pot not included because it was made illegal because William Randolph Hearst (who’s family still owns much of our local media think KSBW) invested heavily into the timber industry and feared Hemp. Hemp is a cheap alternative to wood for pulp in paper production because it grows quickly (unlike trees) and is renewable. Congress scared by stories of ax-murders, on pot, published in Hurst's own newspapers made it illegal in 1937.

Lets continue to be honest a person that smokes pot is more likely to make you an awesome omelette then rob or kill you, eat you baby, sell you dog or rape your wife. Unlike Coke Whores, Tweakers and Crack Heads.

"your house"? I thought you were living in Peace Camp? Your buddy Miguel was arrested for performing an arson while high. So how's that for skrew-e logic? Oh yeah, I forgot. How much can a door and a gallon of paint cost,right? Remember that when you get broken into.

You should apply the same logic to your pear incident. After all, how much did it cost to pull the pear out of the tailpipe? NOTHING. No harm no foul, right?

Lock up all meth users and junkies! They are the scum of the Earth!

OK, it's time for me to take some ritalin and percodan before I go to the bar and get blackout drunk while chain smoking ciggarettes. Then I'm gonna drive home and look at porn until the ambien kicks in.
