    Yet the pill mills go unchecked.

    Speaking of beer in Brunswick. There is a rumor that details of the James Brooks bribery case, some involving a payoff for a beer sales license at the old Burger king on Altama, will not be discussed again until sometime after the next mayoral election in Brunswick.

    Personally I prefer the pill mills to the alternative. Cuts down on crime. IMO.

    There isn't an alternative to opiate addiction ?

    Evidently not one with a lot of success unless it's an fatal overdose. It's just my opinion that prohibition isn't successful either and just creates a black market that leads to a tremendous amount of crime. I know from experience. What's your suggestion? Prison? Personally, as I've said on here before, I'd rather see the money and prison space reserved for violent offenders, but that's just my opinion and I know it's not a real popular one. It would also put a lot of people out of work. It's a big business.

    I wonder what the dollar amount is that is spent on the war on drugs, housing and maintaining the prisoners and last the amount of money that isn't being collected in taxes? Just a ballpark.

  8. Hey- you have to remember in the Judical/penal industry they must have customers and lots of them to justify the amount of tax dollars spent on everything from law enforcement ,lawyers, courts, jails, prisons , to who gets to sell them food , supplies, cars, ( list is endless ). Look at all the jobs that would or should get cut if you get the drug offenders out of the judical/Penal system. Cant have that.......Something has to be illegal for all those invested to keep their employment. So much for a country that claims to love freedom....
