    Why not publish the name of the business so the entire community can boycott doing legal business with this establishment.

    There is help on the island though.  Carribbean Haven Treatement Center has saved many lives once lost to this (and other) drugs, and have repaired relationships once shattered due to crack cocaine.

    Narcotics Anonymous is also on the island, and meets twice a week.  Their information line is 929-6262 if you or someone you know needs help and is willing to do whatever it takes to stay clean.

    God Bless.

    Now I have come to understand what business this is on watercourse road (there are only three).  I used to go there to support the business because I believed they were doing a good thing there.  You can bet you last dollar I will not be giving them anymore of my money.  It is sad too because they appeared to be trying to make an honest living with a good late service to the community.  What snakes – peddling drugs from their establishment.  I used to think about why so many drug users were coming in and out of there.

    I drove by there today and they were open again.  I believe their license should be revoked.  The Trade and business license board should revoke their license or suspend it until they have their day in court.  They ahve been contributing to our social ills and deceiving the public.  They should not be allowed to operate one more day palin and simple.  It truly bothers me tgo say this – knowing who they are but they should understand the magnitude of thier choice. 

    The police did their part now the wheels of justice by way of the other authorities need to do theirs.  I see too many kids frequenting that place and so we are sending the wrong message to keep it open after this.

        Thanks…if the police did not name it I do not see why I should.  In fact I do not understand why the police did not name the business place anyway?

    This may be the reason behind some of the robberies. Come on people, crack users display behavior such as being quickly agitated, aggressive, impatience, anxious, and they tend to lose interest in things they once had in order to chase their new found love. This also includes unable to explain why they don’t have money, or money disappearing quickly.

    This drug is very hard to kick the habit!
