Job well done by the Task Force, to bad their work will not see punishment served. How in the world can this guy admit to making many runs to Columbus for drugs and only be held on $15,000 bond. He should not have bond available. The rest of them will get off with just a slap on the wrist and go back to business as usual. All of the hard work of our local authorities is negated because our justice system is weak.

I am fairly positive this guy did not care where the ****** ended up once he sold it so why should we worry about how punishment is imposed since he has been caught and admitted it. As soon as he admitted it, he should lose his rights to anything a normal citizen should have. He knew what he was doing and didn't care, why should we care what happens to him.

I am sure we could come up with severe punishment for about 20 years that would ensure he would not even think about drugs when and if he survived. It may even grab attention from other local dealers.

Yes another slap on the wrist and only a $15,000 bond. Stiffer penalties need to be imposed on these traffickers. Chelsie - I'm sure your parents and family are so proud of what you have become. A smart girl who went down a very wrong path. Most of these kids especially Eric Siders have been in trouble most of their life. When will all of this stop...........probably never!!

What I hope happens is these people go to prison. What I don't want to see is a public outcry of, "they're not bad people-they're just sick addicts. They don't need to be behind bars. They need to be in a treatment center where they can get understanding, love, compassion and understanding." I think such attitudes are crap and the whole concept of treatment of lieu of conviction has been a total failure. Our local treatment centers have been helping people convicted of drug crimes out of prison too soon. The huge majority ofthem go right back into their old ways-after milking the system for welfare, food stamps and low income housing. How we're handlingthese cases needs to be re thought.

******, Meth, etc. is very detrimental to your health and puts others in danger around you in the production, etc. But I must say, if you look at the numbers (deaths, health problems, etc.) I do not put Marijuana in a class with these drugs, I put MJ in the same drug class as tobacoo and alcohol (only MJ is less damaging to your body and life). But meth, ****** has no real place in society.

No doubt...if you take a drug that can kill you when you take it by accidentally over dosing, your an idiot. Let me be clear on my earlier point, I am OK with MJ being illegal, but if that is illegal, then alcohol and tobacco should be illegal as well..if alcohol and tobacco is legal, then MJ should be treated the same way. Meth, etc...you must be crazy.

it is tragic that young lives are ruined by these dangerous drugs. their punishment should fit the crime and hopefully they will do the right thing and give up those further up the food chain. in a side note i guess we found hindsight101's new screenname (theshield26101) you are not fooling anyone. you must be very proud as i'm sure i would be having to constantly change your identity, what will the next incarnation be: NewellsGirl?

Slingblade, I agree with you. MJ is on the same level as tobacco, alcohol, trans-fats, soda pop, candy, fast food, etc. More energy could be spent ridding ourselves of this addictive poison. Maybe we could get rid a lot of the prescription pain killers (oxy, etc.) and prescribe patients MJ to ease their pain.

LOL@Valhalla... that would be incredibly fitting if he did indeed choose that moniker when he's booted off again.

Incarceration and/or rehabilitation is a waste of time for these low life pieces of ****!!! Do the right thing and have these dangerous miscreants executed. If they execute for these crimes in 3rd world countries(which incidentally are sucessfull in eliminating this kind of crime),surely they can reinstitute the death penalty here in a 1st class country to eradicate this kind of crime. The death penalty would be effective in protecting decent,responsible and compassionate people such as myself from these dangerous criminals.

Anonymous calls from concerned parties.. My guess is since he's only been dealing in the area for only 2 months that the established local dealers felt he was cutting into their turf and turned him in.

Aaron, I care for only decency(conformists). If you are a danger to decency,compassion for the good would truly dictate for the abolition of miscreants who would threaten and many times harm that decent component of the society as a whole.

Seems as if drug busts occur on the Ohio side of the river. Perhaps, Parkersburg should ask for some help to stop some of the drug trafficking on the WV side.

Remington I was thinking the same thing; boy are those some fugly ducklings. If you read the article the officers jumped the gun. 5 GRAMS?!That's $500 TOPS! What a waste of tax resources, since now we will spend upwards of $30,000 each year we house each these losers.

I disagree, honestly I used to believe that as well, but if you look at actual facts, that ideology does not hold up. MJ as a gateway drug is a complete fallacy, are there people with addictive personalities that have used MJ go on to do other drugs, YES, by the same token there are people how have use MJ and do not even drink alcohol...there is no real correlation..people with addictive personalities are going to find something to be addicted to, drugs, gambling, hamburgers, or whatever...laws do not fix this..only education and treatment will...The Cato institute is a think tank in DC they did a research study on Portugal, which legalized 100% of all drugs over 10 years ago and put the $ from law enforcement that was locking up drug users towards treatment programs for people who were addicts and crime and addiction has both declined...not saying that is the way to go..but it is something that needs to be considered.

Also..let's look at why MJ is actually illegal, instead of never questioning anything our elected officials determine is a law, how about we dig deeper and look at laws and how they became a law and is it effective...

On this FACT alone, it seems something is not adding up. The US Government classifies marijuana as schedule 1; no medicinal value and highly addictive. Yet they own the patent for using Cannabinoids for its medical value (US Patent#6630507)..****e on...at least agree that even you can see the hypocrisy and talking out of both sides of the mouth on that one...it is ALL political bull..no more..no less.

The government needs to stay out of peoples bedrooms, thoughts, and bodies. If someone wants to ingest "whatever" it's their body, government should stay out. If someone does harm or endangers someone else (life or property) then law enforcement can get involved. The "war on drugs" has been a failure of epic proportions and a colossal waste of tax payer money.

This is what I think is the problem... In todays society everything goes and no one wants to have the guts to say enough is enough. Groups like the ACLU and others think everyone should have full rights. Once you have betrayed that trust on several levels you just need to be eradicated. Life in prison is just a burden on taxpayers. How many of these people continue to use and get arrested??? Lots!! They can't get a job or hold one for any period of time. They are a burden on society. People do deserve a chance, but not time and time again. If they can't hold a job they turn to crime and that is where the line needs to be drawn. Continue your wicked ways and you will be in a wooden box for the better of society....
