Meth story a wake-up call

  Dear HCN,

Thanks for that excellent article and wake-up call about the "meth invasion" by Stephen Lyons. As a retired detective (NYPD), I know the value of informing the public about the drug perils in their midst, even in the most, so-called, unlikely places. An alerted public could well be a major factor in dealing with and stopping the insidious spread of narcotics use. Of course, 'Denial' is one of the obstacles that must be overcome ... extremely difficult ... but your article goes a long way toward forcing into the public consciousness, the realization that there are deadly problems in 'paradise' that require dramatic, if unpleasant, solutions.
