Take heroin and your over 14, it’s a shame they have police using narcan saving these smack heads like there paramedics. Then they are saved to do it again.

When it was crack nobody cared its hit affluent families now.

lol i feel for those who got addicted to pills through the doctors, then got cut off and found herion.

But those who know not to do and risk, I’m sorry fuck them and won’t wasting money trying to save what doesn’t want saved. And will rob,steal and lie to get it.

You feel that way till it happens to someone you love. And if you really think theres a whole lot of help out there for addicts your mistaken . Dealers feed of off them rehabs methadone clinics feed of off them and ultimately the legal system feeds of off them till they die. Hell Gateway is one of the biggest employers in Beaver County. Granted you have to have the right friends and kiss the powers that be here in Beaver County on the ass to be employed there but it really is a money maker. non profit BULLSHIT>

@Reality check
You lost any and all credibility when you stated so eloquently and intellectually that “lol i feel for those that got addicted”etc. LOL ??? Really laugh out loud and you say you feel for people?!? When is that that you’re feeling bad? After you have finished laughing out loud at them?
Beyond your comment being chock full of prime grade A stoopidity there is a deafening ring of a disingenuous, saturated mess/fuckall of misspelled words that were somehow strung together in some sort of an attempt to persuade your audience. Your false pity is misplaced when focused on others, whereas it should be directed at the unfortunate fact that you Sir have taken one too many stoopid pills!

These county and city officials know who is bringing this in, and dealing it on the streets. If they wanted it cleaned up, they’d do it. Instead, they let greed rise above morals. They all have a hand in it, and stand to lose too much, so they turn a blind eye.

From the sounds of things going on with the powers that be in Aliquippa, that would be a great place to start the clean up…………If they really are sincere in doing so.

@Disgusted…. when they do try to “deal” with it, idiots like you get in the way. This is no longer a problem where authorities will arrest their way out of.
