Readers comments on synthetic drug editorial

PORT ARTHUR — A woman called the News Comment Line to express her opinion about the synthetic drugs recently outlawed by local cities. We suspect her comments represent the beliefs of many others in this area. If you would like to have your say, call the comment line at 721-2438. You don’t have to leave your name.

"I cannot believe that this stuff (synthetic drugs sold as incense or bath salts) was ever allowed to be sold over the shelves at the stores. I was totally shocked when I found out what it was.

This is just telling kids that it is OK to buy it because it’s right there in sight where anybody can buy it. I just don’t understand why it was allowed to be sold in the first place.

Everybody knows about it now. These people who want to get high or hooked on it, they will find a way to get it one way or another but the deal is if it would never have been allowed to be sold over the shelf then not too many people would have known about it. It is ridiculous that these other towns are still allowing it to be sold where anybody can see it. Thank you for allowing me to state my opinion."
