We’ve had a couple years now to allow the drug court process to mature. We’ve had several “graduating classes” and a very good track record. We talked to the initial sitting drug court judge to get the framework of the court’s operations so now, let’s talk to several recent drug court participants and hear their stories from the inside. Join us this Sunday evening as we speak to Dan and Kurt and one of their biggest supporters, Blu.

It's not like there aren't many better ways to make money but selling drugs seems to generate revenue faster. It's not like there aren't better ways to feel good and confident but drugs seem to get people there faster.
How do we protect our young people from getting caught up in the life of drug elling and drug abusing?
Let's get right into this.
Do you know anyone that had the potential to do something great but chose to sell drugs?
Have you known anyone that lead an otherwise productive life EXCEPT that they had a little drug habit?
Have you ever lost a loved one to the drug game?
Do you think jail sentences for drug activity are given fairly?
Have you ever tried drugs of any kind?
What are your feelings about rehabilitation?
Do you think that it's easy to go straight after making money selling drugs successfully for a number of years?
Do you think that getting off of drugs is easier than people give it credit for?
Do you think that the Just say no campaign of the 80's was a good slogan?
What advice would you give to a young person that was in the beginning stages of selling or using drugs?
Has your doctor prescribed medicications for you to use? Many people have misused and misunderstood the way to use their prescriptions which have cause them harm and in some cases death. Taking your prescriptions is necessary. However, the most important thing is to follow the instruction - understand and use your medicines wisely.

Marijuana is finally legalised for use in Washington State. So you're from Vancouver B.C. and you think you can drive down to Smoke Marijuana in Seattle. U.S. Customs & Border Protection pulls you aside after you tell them you are coming down for Marijuana. They ask you if you smoke marijuana and you say yes. Well you have now just opened a barrel of rattle snakes. Plus you now have got one step closer to needing a us entry waiver. We will discuss this very sensitive issue. Admitting to CBP ABOUT ANYTHING DRUG RELATED is essentially you giving them the rope to hang yourself, standing on the gallows, paying them to tie youyr hands behind your back and then yelling at them to pull the lever. We will discuss their reasoning behind it, their interrogation techniques and what you can expect to happen to you. YOU MAY END UP NEEDING A US ENTRY WAIVER.
Sadness, loneliness, anger, worry, and fear are some of the negative emotions that can prompt a person to turn to alcohol or drugs for a temporary escape, the rush of endorphins into the blood stream and the sense of comfort they bring, even if for only a short time. When these methods of self comfort become habitual, a person loses the ability to handle unpleasant emotions without them. But while alcohol and drug addictions are easy to recognize, food addictions are often misunderstood. Obesity is the result of eating habits out of control, but often the reason behind overeating is emotional distress. Food can be a source of comfort just as can alcohol or drugs. Are you a number of pounds heavier than you would like but haven't been able to shed those extra pounds? Have you noticed not just what you eat but WHEN and WHY you eat? Did you gain wait after a relationship breakup? After a job loss? After a loved ones death? Certain life experiences are distressing, and when food becomes our source of comfort, we eat those things that flood our bodies with comforting endorphins - which are often sugary foods with less nutritional value. Are you overeating to mask a state of depression? How do you know when food has become your drug?

Your intrepid pothead host and incurable reprobate is proud to announce that the state of Oregon will be the 3rd state in the Union to legalize marijuana for recreational use; thusly reducing the crime rate in urban areas, reduce drug-related incarceration rates, increase tax revenues and listening to the will of the people. Wasn't that the whole idea behind what the Founding Fathers were attempting to bring to the nation...and then it got hijacked by the idiots currently residing in DC. For God sakes, the American people hate the residents of Congress more than they hate Jar-Jar Binks, the much despised and reviled character in any Star Wars movie made or maybe even, yet to be made. I concur.
