    If you knew my real name you would know that I have a degree as a substance abuse specialist. I only say that to give credential to this fact: Meth (crank) is not a drug. It is a poison. You can't grow it, harvest it or achieve it with any natural process such as harvesting Opium or chewing Coca leaves. There is no "right" formula for it. You should fear people who use it for the simple reason that put it in their arm because they have no value for their own lives. Be afraid - be very afraid...

    DRUGS HAVE BEEN CONSUMED IN EVERY PART OF OUR SOCIETY for a very long time THIS HAS NEVER CHANGED. INCREASED KNOWLEDGE OF DRUGS HAS GIVEN SOME A WAYWARD VIEW.MANY INDIVIDUALS ARE INVOLVED WITH CORRUPT USAGE/DISPENCING/MANUFACTURING YOUR DOCTOR, ACCOUNTANT, LAWYER, YOUR POVERTY STRICKEN AND POLITICAIN. Heroin, meth, cocaine, uppers, downers, psychadelics, cannibis, prescription. It is about selfish anal rententive greed. I say many prayers for the addicted to the chemicals and the life style,

    Don't like police organizations that bypass the usual oversight, but for once, SCINT got it right. G. D. the pusher.

    Some Meth is a home made concoction of various poisons. I saw a recent graduate of OSP demonstrate making crank out of over the counter anti-histamine once. When he got to the part where he chopped up tin foil and poured battery acid on it the crap started smoking he gave it a thumbs up. The bowl he used to mix stuff had a hole eaten in it. Laid it out combing it like he was doing a painting in pink ooze. He is back at OSP now trying to get his Masters Degree. Be scared, be very scared of him.

    This is where the focus needs to be -- meth not marijuana. Meth is so much worse for society, and resources are limited in the "fight against drugs". I'm not worried about a pothead stealing my stuff and raping my kids. I can't say the same for methheads.

    Controlled substances are used all the time at our local schools and in our local police departments. Hence, I believe all students and all police officers should be arrested for frequenting a location where drugs are consumed.

    the charges should also include the corruption of minor(s)without limitation. I hope children assistance programns take a look at these individuals. Ihopoe the over twenty -six bunch spend a long time on the fence with the other type of individuals that lure children.
