Drug pushers aren’t violent offenders, huh?

Sad, so very sad to hear. This drug epidemic is taking many lives every day nationwide. I hear of no plan at the federal or state level to address this deadly issue. The politicians are weak and cowardly and in many cases are users themselves. The Police departments and DA’s hands are tied when comes to truly being able to fight this destruction of families and young lives.


The punishment and sentencing is so minimal that there is no consequences to fear for the drug pushers and suppliers. They need to be held accountable for these deaths. It’s high time these cowardly politicians take responsibility for the deaths their failed policies are causing. Treat these dealers as cancer, and end their reign of death, destruction and terror across our nation. There is a way to get the attention of these dealers and suppliers, but do we have the guts to do it. They must pay the same price for the deaths they are causing one way or another.

Did politicians force them to take drugs? I see no responsibility other than the dumbasses who are dead now. They solved their own drug problem.

Your right. We all have a choice on the decisions we make. The laxed drug laws have opened the door for this overwhelming problem. That’s squarely on the backs of the politicians and the liberal judges who are elected. They have had a tremendous amount to do with this problem. I hope the next dumbass isn’t a family member or close friend of yours.

My friends and relatives don’t choose to ingest potentially deadly chemicals into their bodies for fun so chances are I won’t have to deal with loss. Thank you for your concern.

Yeah good luck with that. All the local politicians are in bed with the drug dealers and are opening dispensaries left and right.
