Even here: Heroin use growing in Carmel

  • concerned

    Obviously this is a disgusting problem, and is a symptom of a loss of hope in this country. I don’t agree with the statement that legalizing a plant in 2 states would increase the use of this killer, especially when you failed to mention the glaring fact that our own military grows it in Afghanistan and has made billions off of it’s production and sale. It is also reported by several whistle blowers that they fly it here in military planes. Or maybe it has to do with a hopeless double digit unemployment rate for members of this same age group. Anyways, I guarantee the solution is not more money for the “task forces”, give me a break, it is obviously more complex than that. I appreciate bringing this epidemic to light, but this article is riddled with subtle manipulative double speak, and that same manipulation of morals is the root cause of almost all of our problems in this once great nation.

  • really…

    This problem IS an epidemic and if the truth be revealed by the community leaders, like this man Dietz did (good for you) people would be in shock for days. I’m not from carmel but your neighbor in fishers and in my son’s graduating class of 2010, they have already lost over a dozen kids in death due to heroin!!! That’s just some of them. There’s plenty more and some we know of are from carmel. Nobody is talking about it or publicizing it because it would ruin our reputation! Our community leaders don’t want this public. When my documentary is released everyone will be in a state of shock

    Pence was putting up a fight to not have needles not to distributed as well. Why hurt the reputation of clean cut Carmel when it keeps attorneys in business. http://www.attorneybryancook.com/drug-charges-in-indianapolis/ he will be the bandaid that keeps the cycle going. Hopefully the courts put them in treatment centers instead of in jail where they get no rehab and just make money off prisoner #432711
