encinoman, except for the disease part you are spot on. Addiction is'nt a disease, its a life style choice.

Word on the street that junkies die a horrible death will have zero effect on other junkies... none, nada, zip... Drug addiction is a disease and needs treatment, but the addict has to have a desire to stop and willingness to go to any length to achieve freedom from the substance-- whether it's hair-on, nicotine, food, or whatever.

As far as the "major player" aspect goes: only someone who has no clue about drug traffiking in America would think that this guy was a major player. The United States will never get rid of drugs - repeat - never. The only way to win the War On Drugs is to surrender. Decriminalize drug use, legalize consumption, tax it... just like the liquid drug alcohol. We would save hundreds of millions annually.

How is it possible this guy is one of the top dealers in the County, when he has only been dealing 2 months and living in a garage? Evidently all the County druggies have been buying from only low level dealers for years..... yeah right.

Glad they got him, but it doesn't seem like all that much ******. If it says 10 units per gram, that is only 50 units. ****** is so addicting and scares the sh$$ out of me. Feel bad for their parents.

Who bets they're out and selling more dope as a confidential informant, rather than ACTUALLY DOING THE TIME THEY DESERVE!!

So is this loser going to be back on Moody Ridge after he gets out? Who lives in a garage anyway? We live nearby and I certainly don't want garbage like this close to my house.

So we are supposed to feel sorry for trash like this? Yeah, I'll pass. Lock em up for a good long time. Every one of them. Refuse like this will steal and eventually harm innocents.

thinkaboutit2......these "so called" kids are adults and nobody forced them to do these drugs. Yes I know one of these kids and she does come from a good family and yes she may have been caught up in all of this but it was her choice. She has been hanging around this type of crowds since she was in high school. One of the boys has been in trouble since he was in high school and continues to go down the wrong path. You cannot help someone unless they ask for help........you can't force it! WORKINGSTIFF did call it like he sees it, and I have to agree with him on this. If you have never been around someone who is a junkie they will do just about anything to get money to feed their habit.

Really, why would anyone use untaxed and unregulated substances when there are safe and legal drugs like liquor and cigarettes.

@WORKINGSTIFF some of these "sick" individuals are just kids that got caught up in the wrong crowd; they came from good families! They need help and prayers... for you to say idiotic people just shows how idiotic you are and very closed minded!!!
