“bullet” Apparently Malaysia is going to be drug free by 2015. ‘Bout time. The United States has been drug free since
1995… 2001… 2008…
“bullet” But wait! The people of Carlsbad, New Mexico apparently know the secret to becoming drug free…
CARLSBAD Ö A group of approximately 40 persons gathered Saturday morning for the Fourth Annual Prayer Walk in downtown Carlsbad, walking one mile to the Beach Park and praying for the city.
The walk was sponsored by the Carlsbad Community Anti-Drug/Gang Coalition. Coalition Preventionist Alison Bryant said the prayer walk is one of the strategies the Coalition uses to help the community work toward becoming drug free.
I wonder if they really mean drug free, or if they have a specific list of drugs in their prayers, and whether they exempt caffeine, aspirin, alcohol, ritalin, vicodin, viagra…
And what do they hope their prayers will do?
Houghton said that every year after the prayer walk takes place there are several major drug busts in Carlsbad.
“It tells us that the drug-trafficking organizations are trying to use a variety of ways to do this,” [Customs and Border Protection spokesman Brian] Levin said. “They are looking for the appearance of normalcy and legitimacy. They are trying not to stand out.”
Is this your first day on the job, Brian?
