Community Forum On Drugs April 22 In Austin

Community Forum On Drugs April 22 In Austin

matt-siple-emp-pol-chA community forum on drug abuse and related topics will be held at 7 pm Tuesday, April 22, at the Austin Firehall. 

Guest speaker will be Matt Siple, chief of police in Emporium Borough, who has conducted well-attended similar sessions in Cameron County. 

Community leaders, educators, parents and other concerned residents are welcome. Trends in drug abuse have been rapidly changing, but the one consistent factor is that problems are growing worse, area officials agree. Heroin has become widely available as a substitute for the higher-priced prescription drugs. 

Siple will share information on the latest trends in drug abuse across the region, with special attention focused on the cheap synthetic street drug marketed as “bath salts,” which has caused users to exhibit irrational behavior and suffer hallucinations.

I hope people in Austin show up! Lord knows we need help here!

This may be similar to preaching to the choir.

Austin may need help, but it is not, by far, different than any other town. If fact it is not AS bad as other towns. A few bad apples can spoil the whole bunch. It would be wonderful to find & arrest the drugies,as long as Mommy & Daddy don't defend them to just get the ole slap on the wrist, as always!

Not to sound like a dildine here 5:12 but sometimes its mommy and daddy who are the dealers or they tolerate the drug and alcohol abuse. Take a look at some of the Facebook pages of the so-called parents' who are in Austin. Have they ever heard of leading by example? Maybe we need to have tests for people to qualify as being parents' because a lot of feckless oafs fall through the cracks.

Take a look at what happened in Williamsport, PA today. This WILL be Potter County in a few months unless we get our heads out of the ground and stop denying that we don't have a drug problem.

There has been and still is some heavy pill use going on in Austin and couple of mommy's and daddy's have been covering it up. I just wish they would get the proper help before it is to late. As far as the face book go's that's all you see is 30 and 40 somethings posting pics at the bars while their kid's are doing whatever? Where do you think the kid's get the bad habits from!
