This is nothing to be proud of! Our state has become a drug trafficking and abusiveness of drugs along with rising crime! The consequences for introducing drugs will prove to be devastating for the state. Sad!

I agree with your statements, Sean. There seems to be a never-ending problem with driving while under the influence and the massive amounts of traffic accidents and fatalities that are not adequately addressed by government or law enforcement.
