  • Are we losing the battle and war against Meth?

    Hows the meth problem out there? Are you seeing an increase or a decrease? If your like us, it is booming. Even though the numbers don't reflect it from the State. As you all may know, ISP MSS lost its DEA money, along with the rest of the States. Smaller departments will not be able to pay for the clean-up. What will we do?

    Yes, we're losing it. We're losing the war on drugs period.

      I guess it will end up becoming a wait till they catch fire and burn up type situation. Not good for everyone (innocent occupants, other occupants in the case of apartment meth labs, and the first responders that will be responding to more and more chemical structure fires) involved.

        I have not run across any meth in a number of years. Are you guys finding high grade or home made?
        "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson

          I agree with ptlcop. The war on drugs was lost a long time ago.Its a shame the politicians in this country dont try something other than throwing money at enforcement. I feel we should legalize marijuana. Its about time. What a tremendous waste of time arresting someone for the sake of simply possessing it. Im saying that the war on drugs is a modern day prohibition and we saw the results of that . Its a battle we cant win.Its not a matter of persistance or moral values. Al Capone once said "all i ever did was give the people what they wanted". With that being said this country consumes more illegal drugs than anyother in the world. If we cant change the demand we cant stop the supply. Furthermore up north we havent seen much meth at all. cocaine is still king here.

            Never have been winning, and we never will win the war on drugs.

              To show a little perspective....

              There are an estimated 20 million (infoplease.com) drug users in the United States in 2004 and nearly 400,000 local and state police.

              There is absolutely no way we can ever stop whats going on. We can only hinder the process.
              This is for all you parents that like to put your kids names on the back of your mini-vans.

              STOP IT! There are predators that will use that information against them!

                "Home" grade, we found two rolling in the last year.

                Most of our drug arrests are pot though. Personally I think its a waste of resources to lock up a pot head. Make'em pay a fine and cut them loose. Call it toker tax...I don't care.

                  We won't do what it takes to actually "win" the war on drugs. Much like illegal immigration we take a middle ground of being illegal but very little enforcment or punishment for the vast majority of those involved. Start beheading drug dealers, it'll slack off. Legalize it to end the turf wars, it'll slack off. Status Quo, well that can go on forever. Lock up a dealer and its just a new job opening. Lock up a user and you've just taken a customer out of the loop for 18 hours. The only thing the prohibition is done is keep it (mostly) out of public view.
