Sadly, you see it just about each and every day in the police blotters we publish. You hear and see reports on TV and across the net. You hear about possible drug activity in our own city parks. This past Thursday, we published an account of a young woman arrested for felony theft. She stole her boyfriend's car and cash to allegedly purchase drugs in Canton. When arrested she was carrying a crack pipe and two syringes. This past summer, a recovering addict said that heroin could be routinely purchased within a 10-minute walk in any direction from downtown Salem. Many of us painfully know the perils of hard-core addiction such as with heroin which someone said is as easy to buy around here as a six-pack of beer.
