So the solution is what Grant? Legalize it, all drugs? Ignore it? Sweep the results of what it causes under a rug? Ignore the crime growth? Legalized or non legalized it is still going to be an expensive habit. Addictions will only grow. Some of these drug habits are two or three hundred bucks a day depending on those addictions. That habit and costs is just as much your problem as it theirs. The programs to cure are failing. Police are not even dealing with new crime they are just trying to keep up with the old. The court systems work against them. So what is the solution? It is better to do something Grant, than to do nothing.

I'm not clicking disagree, but I do disagree. The war on drugs is a failure and the only answer people can come up with is to throw more money at it? Stupid, this is where conservatives stop being conservative.

I would give anything to know what people are disagreeing with on these comments. It is getting to a point of absurd.

Meth has been in Salem since the 70's. It has many different slang terms.

If you look at the shape of the head on the man on the left you will see a distinct pattern of meth. They slolwy turn into a football type shape. Meth is everywhere and can be cooked in small quantities right under your nose. Tweakers sometimes leave clues outside the home and that is where the class comes in. No confrontations, just obsevations can be made. You can see the female is starting the same pattern of facial change. We must have a few tweakers/pickers reading for info on police leads here.

viper1 states: "Time to punish users too!"

Guess what, you can't make an impact on drugs if "selective" law enforcement doesn't stop. The city has to clean up this city from top to bottom.

Qcityfan, did you read about this one? This should put a smile on your face.

That city councilman that was busted a couple of years ago in Indiana for his $300 dollar a day "drug addiction" and arrested by his local police. One of the local police officers confessed up to why and how they caught this POS. He kept continually voting down any effort made to try and curb the drug problems growing in that city. His actions were so weird. The finally put a sting on his hiney after a tip (from an influential resident) and they nailed him.

Kind of like blows apart the myth that only "poor" people have drug habits! LOL

Wait, this is not really happening. This is just a figment of your imagination. Salem is a SAFE city to live in. Just ask any of our City leaders.

qcityfan what is wrong with you? We don't need that stinkin police department. This stuff is not happening. Just ask all the lunatic idiots behind those "Disagrees". Educating the public is a bad thing might just get somebody arrested, what are you thinking? This is Salem. L.M.A.O.

I'd like to know who 'disagreed' with the first two comments posted below; that is simply bizarre.

Next, this situation once again reinforces the idea that we need to dramatically increase the funding for police and drug interdiction in Salem to completely get rid of the crime element for good. And we can do that by reallocating substantial resources from the fire department and put it into the police department, WHERE WE REALLY NEED IT.

For the sake of saving the city, please GET ON WITH IT!!!!!!

I hope any one caught selling or using gets maximum time! We tried prosecuting pushers. Didn't work. Time to punish users too! No customers no drugs. This is no a disease its a choice.

The county EMA in conjunction with the DEA put on a class some time back to show people what signs to look for in case a lab is, or has been active near you. It is worth the time and very informative. Maybe this will bring the class back for the area residents.
