@Dan. Thanks for responding .:) sorry for the delay on my behalf.... well here it goes..... I pledge to continue be the noble man I am. And continue to help my community fight the war on drugs. Thankyou for acknowledging my position as member of the "neighborhood watch" program. I do tend to keep my eyes open for anything suspicious. I would like to make one note that I couldn't imagine walking a mile in a doper's shoes. Sounds like a bad idea. And sounds dangerous. If your walking that path I recommend you get the proper treatment. Before its too late. Remember "once a doper always a doper" . Keep your soft spot, but be wise. "Very nice" night

I heard of "once a Marine, always a Marine," but sorry I've never heard that saying: "once a doper always a doper"... must be new.

@dan p it's nice to see there are others out there who are as open minded and understanding as yourself. I agree, jail time is not going to make this mans situation any better, if anything it will make it worse. The only thing you get out of jail are connects and more street smarts (and not the good kind). These people need to be ordered to get the help they need, and the help needs to be made mute easily obtainable and affordable! Instead if wasting the money on locking these people up we need to focus on the root of the problem! most addicts start off simply by self medicating because they cannot get the real help they need in the first place, whether it be physical or mental, there is always a reason. Addicts are humans too, underneath it all, and most people will never take the time to figure that out unless someone they love is going through it.
