margaret Taylor: You are correct. I don't know a thing about the streets. What I do know is that due to the fine efforts of the PCPD there are 12 less people peddling this poison on the streets.

When you can't find work, what is one to do and how in the heck does a homeless man have money to buy drugs to sell. Is this the drugs that was taken from the police department? If so, how did they get them. Word on the street is that-well, I'll leave it right there. But I will say this, nobody is putting a gun to anyone's head to do drugs. Legalize them because they are not going anywhere-tax them and make the economy better. Denver and Washington state is catching on.

I like how folks are fast to say that there are jobs out here. The ones saying that are the ones that already have a job. Once you have a record, it's hard to find work.
