‘Smack’ down drug sales in our parish
Local drug arrests commonly involve the possession or sale of marijuana or prescription pills. Powder-cocaine and crack-cocaine arrests are probably the next common.
In the last year or so, it has become apparent that methamphetamine — a very addictive stimulant made with over-the-counter ingredients — is also a problem in the parish.
As of last week, it is clear this parish faces another chemical foe — heroin.
