    Meth is a horrible drug but also is a disease when someone is hooked… We shouldnt be wishing for od’s with these young peolle we should be educateing ways to kick the habbit and save lives of alotta young parents so their children wont become apart of a revolveing door to nowhere

    • It is not a disease. It is a choice that has consequences. The sooner these people leave our society, the better.

    Meth, meth, meth. What losers. I seriously wish that we would legalize EVERYTHING so that people like this would just OD and get out of our society. The huge number of junkie deaths would serve as a good example and warning for children to leave this crap alone. I say if someone is dumb enough to destroy the lives of themselves, their family, and everyone who cares about them, then good riddance.

  3. So making a phone call to a known drug dealer or user can be the basis of a felony charge for the of use of a communication facility to commit a felony, without any recording of the conversation? Texts would be good evidence. Geez. how about Smoke signals?
