I believe that communities are enthralled with grow operations and the possible financial windfall from them.  In reality it's not much however and unless a community is well staffed with LE, it could be a real thorn.

Here's one for you...  Madison Township wants to rezone the old Dura Automotive site on Beecher Street to allow a grow operation to inhabit the site.  Gus Harrison Correctional Facility is on the opposing corner of Beecher at Parr Highway, a scant 1/10th mile away....  And Madison Township as well as the City of Adrian are understaffed with LE..  A recipe for disaster in my view.

My thinking is you get people hooked on marijuana and i guess it makes them feel good.  Then they move on to the next step.


Nah . . . the next step is usually junk food and weight control.

I just don't get the majijuana campaign.  Do the liberals really think all the drug users will switch to it rather than do hard drugs?  I'm guessing not.

The liberals want to take guns away from everyone because 10 or 15 school kids get shot.  I'm only making that as an example,  Then they want to leagalize drugs and pay no attention to the border where they enter all the while killing tens of thousands of people.

No one ever killed someone by speeding and driving erratic on Marijuana...   just Alcohol
Alcohol is legal however -  its like saying if you drink beer - you'll move up to whiskey

Nothing says dad of the year like overdosing on Heroin with your kids in the car...  ages 9 &4 -  hopefully taken away forever!

I see they are moving towards the Trailer parks... 

this catch and release program isn't working.    Letting the dealers supply and users not having to ID their suppliers only leads to more users and deaths!

Just like immigration, 'catch and release' has been proven time and time again, not to work at all.  Dopers need to be slammed in the slammer and let them detox in a cell.

It doesn't appear the addiction issue is letting up any!


http://www.monroenews.com/news/20180218/two-heroin-overdoses-in-one-day



Heroin is not the only addiction in Monroe County. Meth and crack cocaine/cocaine,
 are the ones to worry about right now. A lot of the pill heads switched over, to that. It's bad in Monroe, right now. You just don't hear about it as much, because the users aren't overdosing and passing out. Meth heads can be very violent, especially when the are going through withdrawals.

Didn't know that about the violent outbursts.  Maybe that explains some of the antics of a few guys at the gym the some of us suspect are druggies.

I don't remember what it was but years ago it was going around.  It was a horse tranquilizer and it tended to give users 'super strength'.

One guy was a biter.  The fire chief went in the ambulance to the hospital to help the EMTs if they needed it. 

Once the victim (tough word to use when it was self inflicted) was in the hospital one of the nurses was leaning over him hooking up whatever and she ended up with part of her anatomy very close to his mouth.  The fire chief reached across and put his hand in the way and pointed out to the nurse "He bites"!!! 

Today the fire chief would probably have gotten hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit!!!

When I was up north we picked a guy up out of the middle of the road and when he came around he was strong enough to break the straps on our backboards.  I think back then they were just seat belt material but it was still quite an effort on his part.

With me, key word is always 'addict'  Getting to be an addict requires the addict to partake in the drug voluntarily.  I have no feelings for any of them and I don't appreciate responders administering Narcan and bring them back...to do it again.  Let them die I say.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Oh, yes. Very violent. I've seen where a 20 year old was bugging, relentlessly, to her 72 year old grandfather, for $20.00. She was in a crazed state, when she woke from her last binge. He told her NO!. No money. She reared her arm back and hit in straight in the chest area. It knocked him out cold. An ambulance was called, cpr started by another daughter, but he came to right before they got there. Police came, too, but the granddaughter did not go to jail. She took off out the door before any first responders came, and he didn't press charges. Just think, if he had pressed charges against her then, she wouldn't be in the trouble she is today.

I am guessing she would be in even more trouble today.
