The collection of parents, civic leaders, law enforcement personnel who assembled for this event at the high school gym seemed genuinely concerned about the issue of meth manufacturing, use, and trafficking in our community.
As a group, we were educated on drug awareness, emerging drug trends, internet drug trafficking, and how to keep our kids drug free.
It was relatively well attended by the community, but not nearly as crowded as the girls varsity basketball game I took the family to last weekend.
Basically, it was a preview to what our kiddies were going to see this week in their classrooms, and they wanted to give the parents a heads-up to what was coming up.
Daddy, is that what Uncle Festus went to jail for?
Pa, why can't we get Sudafed in pill form in Oklahoma..I hate those gel-caps?
Ma, why is that dog sniffing around your spare tire?
My questions focused on whether or not the highway that runs through our small town is a major meth traffic artery, are the transporters sticking to the main highways as opposed to the back roads, and whether or not they're recruiting locals who know the roads, speed traps, and drug busting capacities of the local authorities.
