slingblade - Again we agree. But I have to point out that with "more money and power than God", isn't it curious that Barack Obama and Eric Holder would have us believe that the Mexican drug kingpins wouldn't find any guns in the world if it wasn't for the American citizen and our freedom?

I think most people would agree the Mexican government (for the most part) is corrupt, the cartels in Mexico have more money and power than God and they fund the politicans either directly or indirectly that have their best interest in mind. Well, when CO and WA made cannabis legal, guess who wrote a letter to our federal gov urging them to shut that legislation down because it will undermine what they are trying to do in Mexico to fight the drugs. Does anybody actually logically believe that, or does it make more sense that they are more worried about cannabis being grown and used locally in the USA will cut into their bottom dollar line (aka, their biggest cash crop export will take a hit, no pun intended). Almost all of this drug prohabition is smoke and mirrors hidden behind some facts and alot of propaganda, it is so twisted up now, nobody knows what to believe.

Interesting posts...I just hope that people will start looking at the actual data on drugs instead of what their personal experience was or what they learned in 5th grade in the D.A.R.E program...I dont know the answer or if there is a silver bullet answer, but what we are currently doing isnt working very well.

IFHPED - Do a little research on the drug usage of that shining pillar of the Democratic Party, Bill 'deteriorated septum' Clinton, also.

Check out the book "Compromised" by Terry Reed.

slingblade - I agree with what you say about a bust resulting in a vacuum that is then filled by a new dealer.

I hope that most will understand that, in many communities, there are drug dealers and money laundering business fronts that have been known to the governmental hierarchies for years that are 'connected' and left alone to ply their trade.

"Somebody can have addictions/problems with many things in life...it would probably be wise to try not to generalize and lump everybody together regarding one variable in their life."

Like I said, this is just a little ole newspaper poll, etc., etc. If this were a dissertation on drug use, I would not lump everyone into one big pot field.

"Didnt our pres admit to doing drugs, he seems to be doing ok, he got elected pres."

This president is no prize. Maybe his drug days is the reason he is not a good president.

You have given me a tremendous headache, sir (I presume). Now, I have to go take a DRUG to get rid of my pain, man. :\

@slingblade: "IFHPED - I disagree. "Everyone you used to know that did drugs" isnt a large enough data sample for me, no offense, but maybe everyone you used to know that did drugs was just flat out losers to begin with.

First of all, this is just a little ole newspaper poll, not meant to be exact in any way. Secondly, of course they were losers~~they were dope heads who DIDN'T QUIT THEIR HABITS.

You go on to say, "I know peole who have done drugs that have wrecked their lives and I know people who have done drugs that went on and are still having successful professional careers. Somebody can have addictions/problems with many things in life...it would probably be wise to try not to generalize and lump everybody together regarding one variable in their life.

Thirdly, I suppose it's possible to be a druggie and go on to lead a productive life. I didn't say it never happens.

Slingblade, I agree that drug busts will do nothing to curb this modern day pestilence, the results many times which have become deadly. Education will do little to help the addict, unless he/she wants to improve himself/herself. It takes little education for this to happen. There is only one way to quit the addiction: Quit, Cold Turkey!!!. For the dealer, he/she must really be punished. No incarceration, where they would reside living better than most hard working middle class Americans. I advocate immediate death, preferably utilizing medieval tactics, like the stretcher used by the Spanish Inquisition. Or better yet, having their body appendages removed while screaming as they are being televised on national tv.

People with addictions cant imagine everyday life without whatever they are addicted to (cigarettes, alcohol, herione, ****, cheeseburgers, etc.) Overdoing anything in life to the point it effects your relationships and your productivity is a problem...also..all drugs are different..so cant really lump meth with weed...but I agree..we should be working towards educationg and helping people making responsible decisions to better their life...not just lock them up...it has been proven..that doesnt work.

Everyone I used to know who did drugs did it to mkae them "feel good". They couldn't handle everyday life without their dope (I don't know why, others do.)

I'm sorry, but dopers are idiots. Their "fun" will not last~~neither will their teeth or mental health.

Eventually, they will be like the creeps one sees on TV documentaries.

Make no mistake, the gov and elected officials may be a little concerned about our health/safety, but they are more concerned about their re-election budget and there are alot of big money interests that really want drugs like MJ to stay illegal (namely Alcohol, Tobacco, and Cotton industries)...Not saying everybody should do drugs, just saying let's be honest with ourselves about the situation, the data, what we have been doing, and where we need to go from here...stop the lies and scare tactics on both sides of the argument..the right answer is probably somewhere in the middle.

(continued from below)...we need to start looking at the data and try a different outlook on drugs..just making something illegal and locking people up obviously has not worked, people need to choose not to do it. I believe if we made drugs legal and controled the products (like alcohol/tobacco) and spend the $ wasted from the legal system on education of youth and rehabilitation of addicts, it would benefit society much more. Reality is, it is easier for a high school kid to buy a J than it is to buy a 6 pack (drug dealers do not card them)...if you could buy drugs from 7-11 but had to show ID like alcohol it wouldnt solve all of the abuse, but it would cut the legs out of the cartels, we would benefit from tax $, and law enforcement could focus enegry on violent crimes.

Drug busts do nothing in the big picture. I applaud law enforcement for doing their job, however, the drug industry is all about supply and demand, economics 101, if there is a market for a product, there will be somebody selling it. Drug busts only create a vaccum for another dealer to come in and service the clients who now are looking for a new dealer. Education is the main way to combat drugs (yes, that includes alcohol and toboacco).

The two reporters who are credited with this story may wish to contact their journalism school and get their money back.

500 13th street Apt. 309 where the bust took place is located in a building at the corner of 13th and Avery and is known as the "Savage" apartments, not the "Greenbrier" which are up the street at 13th and Quincy. The Savage apartments contain the new police substation where Kramers photo once was. Also the map of the location of the bust at 905 Virginia shows the actual area of 905 West Virginia Avenue, not Virginia Avenue.

These are the types of scum AG Holder wants to let walk away from prison. Free to kill our children. How far America has fallen. These scumbag's need to never see daylight again. I am betting they will walk.

The Greenbriar Apartments used to be some of the better rental properties in town. They look terrible now, as much of the rest of the neighborhood. Wonder how many other residents are nervous about this bust?
