Aleece is spending the entire day with me. Casey left early this morning on her little journey thru the bad part of town to see her undisclosed friend. She said she would be home by nightfall. I hope Casey knows what she is doing. I have this awful feeling that something bad is going to happen. She is being extremely secretive. I asked Tony if he knew what was going on with Casey. He said he didn’t have a clue.
Matt and Hemy dropped by my room. They are doing well and look so incredibly happy. I think I am somewhat envious. Hemy says things are going well at Central with one exception. Someone is distributing drugs and not the good kind that cures illnesses. Twice this week Matt stumbled across some sad looking individual in the Park next to the Central Campus obviously strung out on something.
I was just getting ready to say that I haven’t seen any drug use near Bear Country, when Pete walked up and interrupted. He said that the use of drugs is becoming a problem in the community. The sellers are calling this drug. “Bliss”. To my surprise the locker incident yesterday was actually Pete interrupting a sale of “Bliss” inside Bear Country.
There are no laws in place forbidding the use of illegal drugs. Even if there were any such laws it would be difficult to enforce. The local tribes have their own codes of conduct. I have asked the journal club to put up fliers inside Bear Country. Anyone caught using “Bliss” inside Bear Country will have to find a new place to live. Hemy and Matt will be placing similar fliers inside the Central Campus. Out of concern for the local community I plan to visit a few of the other tribes in town and ask for their support against “Bliss”. If enough tribes ban the use of “bliss” perhaps we can stop this from becoming too much of a problem.
