    Oh please, this guy just wants to keep his full time job. I live near Brunswick and sure, you have your junkies but I’ve never heard of any ‘bigtime drug dealers’. Plus, why does it bother Mr. Cutliffe so much that the drug market is unseen by the citizens of the town? If people want to ruin their life by drug use and keep it out of the way for other people, then let them have their choice.

    •  Say this after the junkies break into your house and steal your stuff to sell for drugs.Say this when your kid or love one is so hooked on drugs that they look like a character from the walking dead show.

    I haven’t seen this big drug culture in Brunswick, but certainly where there are people there are drug users, which means dealers.  My first question is simple: no one should be able to “just call in” a prescription for an opiate with out a DEA permit number; how do these “kids” get them?  The second is just as simple: why are the pharmacies and prescribers not using the state Prescription Monitoring Program more robustly?  That’s what its there for, folks.  Which is not to say it’s there for law enforcement, which it is not, it’s there to identify drug seekers, get them into treatment, and keep excess legitimate drugs from hitting the street.

    That doesn’t help with crack, heroin, or pot, but the prescriptions have a partial answer.  Don’t count the College out of this, either.  The myth that only low income people use recreational drugs has long been be-bunked.  These kids have money, they want fun, they’ll find a willing seller.  Not pretty, but true.
