I wonder if there is a link between the amount of ******e on the streets of America these days and our involvement in ******e producing countries like Afghanistan?

Really,? That's a censured word? Ok How about this,diacetylmorphine or morphine diacetate (INN)), also known as diamorphine (BAN), and colloquially as H, dope, smack, horse, brown, black, tar.

perhaps the drug problem in Wheeling and WV is related to the poverty;lack of job opportunity.

100 million was squandered in Wheeling that could have been used for meaningful job creating projects.The Capitol renovation- as an example- has not created the jobs as intended or as promoted. The anchoriconic tourism show, Jamboree USA, was not revived. McKinley was the big winner with fees.

Other areas of WV, such at the I79 Corridor, have grown with the Byrd /Mollohan money.Morgantown unemployment @ 4% or less.

Population is down, police presence has increased astronomically.

How about this...learn what is effective from other countries and cultures concerning drug use/crime...the answer is before your eyes.

Weefailing is just jealous of anybody with a job.

Drilling is the ONLY thing keeping Wheeling on Life Support.

When THEY leave, Wee-ling will deflate like a balloon with a 6 inch hole in it.
