  1. kind of living

    so do we stop evolving at some magic number ? or do we continue make further mistakes of all kinds in our life ? we all know the answer to that . but hell save the drug dealers , heck no children never die from over dose , or booze for that matter . I think there is plenty of room to help the drug dealers , because many are addicts of course , just as I use to be , but I had to want to stop using , jail was not the key , for me it was someone that truly cared enough about (ME) when I was programing in NA/AA , but while I no longer drink or drug , I still make mistakes , but I sell nothing and try to be the best person I can be , just as most of everyone on this site , trying to move with these unfair laws going this way and that way using a suicide clutch trying to navigate the registry . so how can these people cry over just the dealers 80 or even 90 grams of coke or H , and at the same time give free hand to do what they will with the rest of RC’s that did their time and just want to move on , the youngsters should be able to do what everyone else did back in days gone by , because if this registry is over many of our heads , you know its over theirs , kids have no reason to be in the system ,dang sure not the registry , but in the mean time dealers are killing each other as well as people that owe them money , and RC’s are still on the back burner having to beg for our rights , prison and tougher laws is all we get , no matter how many years we have been clean ,
