I really don’t think I have had my head in the sand, but I was astonished at the number of felony drug cases from 2016.
While I was researching information for a sentencing story that appears in today’s issue, I found where 30 individuals had been sentenced for drug crimes in 2016 and another seven the first week of January for offenses committed last year.
These are just the felony cases that go through circuit court.
I would have to guess there were that many, or more, in district court.
There are no social boundaries for drug abuse.
