Elsipogtog roadblocks planned to keep drugs out of community

You know, they said after 9/11 that the infringement of our personal rights was worth it to curtail terrorism…and look where that has led…
I admire the thought to rid the community of drugs and I know how they have destroyed communities and families. I just don’t think this is the way to go about it. Perhaps a history lesson of the 60s — where we had a great movement of peace and tolerance for one another until drugs were introduced. David Crosby was asked what destroyed the 60s movement…and he answered “cocaine”. I see this happening all over again with meth and legalized marijuana…it’s hard to be strong against the Dark Side when you’re toxic from chemicals — be they recreational or not. The young do not understand why the politicians want them doped out of their minds…
