      Couldn’t agree more.  They can’t figure out a way to better their young lives, but they know a WHOLE lot about chemistry.  A:  Book a cot at the Houlton Hilton.  B:  Next time you want to be a “successful” drug dealer, stay off of main street/down the road from the police department.  Larry, Mo and Curley evidently.

      Realizing we are all human and do judge other ppl, I just want to ask you one question? Did you ever think that maybe these “kids” are only living what they learned? How can you call a drug addict trash. Would you call someone who smokes cigarettes and got Cancer “trash?”  I agree great job DEA, clean up our streets!  I’ve been clean from Meth for almost 16 years but only clean from booze and pot for two and I’m not trash!!!

    Maximum punishment is 10 years in prison. For which they will spend a few months in jail and be free to set up again in another town.

      if they get 10 years.. max… they will spend about 7 years in then be out.  normally max is never given unless they totally refuse to cooperate with authorities and give the info they want.  rarely do you find someone that will not spill all they know.

      This is not the biggest problem we have in the state with dealers.  The problem lies in addiction and experimentation that leads to addictions. This is like any other issue in the world today. It involves demand and supply.  Sadly what we see a lot of is the pushers getting busted (which is a good thing don’t get me wrong) but when one goes down two more start up.  If there is a way to “”cure”” the addicts then the problem would be solved. But it seems as though the meds put out on the market to stop the abuse (suboxone for one) is just as bad if not worse then the others. 

      Bottom line is we need not only to get rid of the people supplying.  We need to find a way to keep the users sober with out the use of other meds.. just like the old saying where the is a will there is a way. money talks.  Being able to accomplish this, we also would see a dramatic decrease in crimes in this state as well.
