No New Epidemic of Drugs

By Angelo Martin

I am astonished at the articles in the Ketchikan Daily News about drugs in the community as if they're surprised or it is something new. When I arrived in K-town drugs were everywhere and continued to be there all the years I lived there, 21 years. You would be surprised who was using them. Cocaine thrived as other stuff.

Here on the Oregon Coast it's a big problem. It's everywhere.
