  1. The illegal drug trade must be eradicated. Where the drug dealings are flourishing there would be a proliferation of guns. The glamorous lives of drug dealers are usually short lived. These people are prisoners of NOW. They want everything NOW. Riches, one accumulates honestly, don’t come overnight, you have to toil long and hard. Question, is Vieux Fort an oasis of criminality? This place is mostly in the news for the wrong reasons.

    • Wish our problem in the states were just Mary Jane which would be bad enough. (per news of medicinal legal use in CA etc)
      2015 AL lost 736 lives due to Opiate Overdose from Oxy to the Big Guns. I will be interested to see stats for 2017 I expect to be higher. So Sad! Lord Jesus help our Human Race, the Me and Now generation!
