Ive now heard of rainbow parties in Northern Ky. High school students fill a bowl with whatever pills they can find and take them not knowing what they have. Hate the idea of my 13 year old having to make the choice. I trust her, but...........
In the last few cities I've been around they also steal wiring out of street lighting runs and the like. Oxycontin too.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
A program I recently listened to on the radio indicated that the heroin coming into Northern Kentucky and Cinncinatti (and on a smaller but growing scale, Lexington, Ky.) is making its way there from the Detroit area. Interstate 75 is a major pipeline for a variety of illegal drugs.
The program didn't go much into how the heroin gets to Detroit.
Throughout my career, I have transported and continue to transport a lot of psychiatric patients. Back in Connecticut it was mostly for psychological problems as well as alcohol and marijuanna abuse. Here in Tennessee its a lot of hard drugs. Needless to say this past year has been a major eye opener.

Yup, a lot of heroin in the area (I'm across the river from N KY), it seems to be making a resurgence, maybe because people realized that Meth is so terrible, and heroin use is easier to hide than meth use?
Another theory I heard is that it stems from prescription pill abuse. People get hooked on a pill that is an opiate, and in an effort to "chase the dragon" progress up the chain until they get to heroin.
I will say that I have never understood how someone could inject themselves with heroin. I remember one day on patrol in Afghanistan, we found a poppy field that the farmers had recently scratched the bulbs on. They scratch the bulbs with a little multi-pronged tool, and then the black tar heroin oozes out. We could tell when we found the "good" crops, because the bulbs would be scored all over. Anyways, when they say "black tar heroin" really, it looks like black tar. That is it's natural state. Why someone thinks putting that in their body is a good idea is beyond me.

There was another home invasion/burglary across the street from me last night.
Lets bring back Agent Orange and Napalm. Turn those Poppy fields into more desert.
