I wish you would open your eyes and see that it has nothing to do with your new neighbors from the north and it has to do with your children and the changing times. It's 2012 AND YOUR CHILDREN ARE EXPOSE TO SO MANY THINGS BOTH GOOD AND BAD THROUGH THE MEDIA, INTERNET, MUSIC AND FRIENDS. All you can do is open their eyes to what can happen when bad/ wrong choices are made. Please try to steer you children and not blame their mistakes on others. I'm just saying..................it

Mr. Frunzi, That is truly a moronic point of view. You have nothing to back up that comment with. Please enlighten yourself. Highlands Resident.

I'm amazed at the ignorance. I just don't know what else to say. I shouldn't be amazed at the ignorance because it seems to be endemic here on the bayshore. However the characterization of people from the "north" bringing their problem lives here reminds me of those who more than 100 years ago blamed societal declinef on those people from the 'south.' Tarring all with the same brush is not only unfair, but patently ignorant. At one point or another, your people (whomever you are) were "those people." We are all from somewhere else. Also, there will always be people who will seek out illicit or licit drugs, always was that way and always will be that way. An enlightened drug policy with efforts directed towards vocational rehab and away from spending huge amounts of time and money fighting the ubiquitous weed user makes a lot more sense. Anyone who needs heroin is self-medicating, just as the alcoholic or chronic user of any mood altering drug is doing. It's time to get ourselves out of the habit of blaming the victim and take the steps an enlightened society should be taking in reclaiming the lives of so many who could be saved from this scourge.

Not me Gabby. I was born here. Not any where else and I remember when this crap was much less prevelant. Maybe it is you who is ignorant. Also, my families existence in this area may be traced back to the American Revolution. I'm not aware of a single drug problem in my family tree..
