In early 2012, more than $4.5 million of cocaine and marijuana was seized in Lynchburg, Virginia. In total, the bust yielded about a half-pound of crack, more than 14 pounds of cocaine, 666 pounds of marijuana and more than $120,000, plus two dozen firearms. Several Lynchburg residents were arrested for activities allegedly related to a cross-country drug ring.
Drug rings mean more drugs to local residents, and more drugs means higher rates of abuse and addiction.

The Social Responsibility to Get Treatment
When a community is home to any stop in a drug ring, it increases the amount of a wide range of substances that are available to residents. Drug abuse and related criminal activity are often higher as a result – and gang activity and costs to the community for law enforcement, hospitals and courts are higher as well.
Is it your social responsibility to get clean and sober? It’s true that drugs wreak havoc with community stability – from their country of origin, along the path of drug trafficking, all the way to your door. Every pill, line, joint or hit you take is the end of a long road of destruction characterized by lives lost – and one of those lives could be yours.
