Why not report your findings to the local police force. Sure they wouldn't be interested but always worth a try....

Yep, I often wonder what the blue boys are doing some days. I was in Tesco a few days ago and a pair of them drew up in a pretty nifty Audi A4 Quattro and proceeded to go shopping !! We need a few plain clothes police to sort the druggies out though....

If you start busting the revolting drug dealers in the town, this will inevitably result in the arrest and removal of the excellent services as provided by the good drug dealers and you will end up with some very angry people. Yours truly, Finknottle.

there are around half a dozen police officers in lewes and not all are on shift the same time so often there are less. There are also many people who deal/use drugs in lewes.. the likely hood of being caught is so slim for this reason. we need more police!

Just legalise them. I know that means some of our police will lose the pocket money they get from the dealers but it's the best thing in the long run.

This argument has been played many times. There have been scores of deaths from drugs in Lewes over the last 20 years including many people I knew and grew up with. It really doesn't need to return to those awful days. Stop it now before another wave of heroin claims the current generation of teenagers. Anyone caught dealing that rubbish should be hounded out of town and properly dealt with by the law; it's a killer.

"it's a killer". Actually in it's purest form it's not. The reason so many people die is because of the impurities and lack of strength consistency. Saying that, it's not my cup of tea, frankly I prefer well, tea actually.

Actually in it's purest form it *is*. Last time a load of heroin addicts in Brighton started OD'ing and dying was because there was a rare batch of clean gear which they couldn't handle

Don't worry they are still working hard!

I think you're both right, Cliffite and The Voice.
If it was legal and controlled, it would be of known and consistent strength and quality and OD's would only happen if people took more in quantity than they were used to. Plus they wouldn't have to go on the rob/the game or deal to get their own, there wouldn't be turf wars or dealers and the government could tax it.
Win-win imo.

Driving is far more dangerous than taking drugs - not just for those choosing to do it, but also for innocent bystanders.
I'm amazed that a topic about 'drugs' has ended up with a discussion about Heroin. It's like Zammo and Grange Hill, 30 years later.

There are still a lot of addicts around, Mercian, that's why. I was surprised by the extent of heroin addiction in Lewes district when I started a job that brought me into contact with them.

Rural areas seem to have more of a problem than urban ones, ACT. The Cotswolds and Herefordshire (which I know well) have more heroin addicts per head than Birmingham or Coventry. I presume if you live in a city you are more likely to get into party drugs, which are less likely to lead to addiction - although having said that B&H has a huge issue with heroin, I think.
You're right, though, in that people confuse the problems caused by prohibition with the problems caused by the drug itself.

At a guess, I would say boredom is a big reason people take drugs. In rural areas there is very little to do for a lonely teen. In the cities there are plenty of cultrual distractions to get involved in and contribute to.

How hypocritical of the government to allow the sale of cigarettes with smoking can kill printed on the side and yet ban drugs. It's obviously the revenue in taxes they get from it. I agree with Cliffite and the Voice that if it was legal the dealers would be out of a job.

Wakey wakey, Alchohol kills way more than all the other drugs put together.
It's easily taxed, that's the difference.

How can anyone complain about illegal drugs knowing that?

We are all hypocrites

It's also amuses me that people call cannabis the gateway drug, when in reality by far the biggest majority of people smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol first.

myself: You're right of course. But it's also partly because drugs are illegal - to get cannabis you have to have contact with the dealers who are also making their living selling other illegal things.

I'm bored of this we ahve this conversation several times over..let's agree to disagree. The impact on peoples lives from the dealing of drugs is not small, and people who live near dealers are fed up of the whole thing.
Britain lacks re-hab units for those who need treatment and they can't afford the Priory like amy wineglass.
