For the most part, I don’t really care what adults want to put into their bodies. I don’t believe that lengthy prison sentences are appropriate just for the simple possession and use of drugs. The money spent to incarcerate them would be better used for treatment.

When most people think about where clandestine methamphetamine labs are typically found, they envision run-down homes or cheap motels. That gives many people a false sense of security, and they often think that there is no way that a meth lab could be located next door – especially if they live in a ritzy neighborhood.

Heather Grace Hughes, 44, was pulled over in Beverly Hills (Texas, not California) at 1 a.m. on April 25 for a defective license plate light. This is something I see all the time – someone is stopped for a minor traffic/equipment violation and gets arrested on more serious charges.

On March 27, which was also Easter Sunday, a little 9-year-old girl accompanied her mother to the home of Glynda RonDeau, who was reported to be a friend of her mother’s. Apparently, the two women met in jail, according to court documents. There was no mention of why either of the two were in jail together when they met.

I also told the readers that I am not revealing a secret that will cause meth use to suddenly skyrocket. Like I said last week, women and girls tell other women and girls what meth can do. Why do you think that, in contrast to most other drugs, meth is as likely to be used by a woman as a man?.

But when you think about it, they grow up around meth and other drugs, and when their mothers, fathers and other visitors to their homes were high on meth, they probably did not use the best judgment.
