We wonder why WV has such a bad reputation when stuff like the Jesco Whites show up on Documentaries that portray the ignorance of people. i'm sorry but the Jesco Whites are an embarrassment to this State as well as Boone County. I admit they all need help. How can anyone justify doing drugs on TV and brag about it and then have the audacity to do the drugs in front of your mother. Then we wonder why our society is going to Hell in a handbasket.

Of course the Whites are an embarrassment to West Virginia, but hey, who cares? We're not all married to our cousins. Let the world think what they want. The Whites movie is just fun(:

I have yet to see this movie, been wanting to though. All of you who look down on the Whites need to look into thier own families. The only thing the Whites are doing is just being COMPLETELY HONEST about the things they do. You dint think there's pillheads in your family? Bullish:t. Addiction to pills has ran rampant. I've got a friend who works at a methadone clinic. You wouldn't believe some of those in that program. Local well known people (lawyers, nurses, pharmacists, and more) but they keep it low key. The Whites are just open about what they do. No I don't agree with everything they do, but they are behaving the way they were taught, doing what they saw thier parents and families did while growing up.
I read about one scene in the movie of a girl snorting pills in her hospital room after giving birth (I think). That jumped out at me. Everyone that commented on that was shocked, calling them "poor white trash" among other things. Last year I went to visit a friend of mine after she gave birth to her son. This woman is well known, works for a great law firm here, would never thought she'd do anything. But there she was, crushing up an Oxy on the table beside her hospital bed. So the Whites aren't the only ones who do this stuff.
I don't know these people, but even though they don't do the right thing, at least they don't put on two faces...one for public, that they are good moral people. Then one for private, as they crush up a pill or cocaine or whatever.

I was born & raised in Boone county. I must say, I was afraid of watching due to the embarrassment I thought I would feel. Turns out, I left the theatre feeling sad.:( my father currently lives in Boone Co. And is a pill addict as well. There are absolutely NO resources there to educate about or assist in treating addiction. The closest facilities would be kanawha or Logan. Both are 45 minutes away. If you know anything about this, then you know young have to be at the clinic almost daily. Whichever I agree, not too far to save yourself, but in the eyes of an addict, its muto easier to continue down the same path of getting high & committing a slow suicide.
However, I feel the embarrassment should lie in the hands if the doctor as well as the government. For example, Dr Dawson was my fathers Dr & his monthly Rx was: 140 oxy 15's, 140 tab 10's, 140 Xanax, 70 SOMA, ibprophren 800 & some stomach meds. He has NO TERMINAL illness nor does he has any real diagnosis aside from "back&knee" pain. Yet, he was able to get that lethal concoction monthly?! The government, and MINE AND YOUR TAX dollars paid treatment BC he is on disability due to a legit injury at work, whichever explains back&knee pain. However, the treatment for addiction IS NOT covered just the same! So in my opinion...the whites are not the embarrassment, they are just a product of their surroundings and the flawed system, which they have been outsmarting since they can remember.

I'm seriously contemplating a move to Boone Co. I just have to take a road trip to check out the options of building as close to the Whites as possible. Looks like a perfect place to retire.
