Meth isn't too bad here in Nebraska, but rural Missouri has a huge problem with it. Alot of the Midwest states are hotbeds for it.

Epidemic? Pandemic? Apparently it is relatively cheap to make and buy so a lot of economically suppressed areas see it more than the more expensive narcotics. I guess crack is somewhat the same story. At least this problem can't be blamed on Central American Sandinistas leading to "the war on drugs" (a misguided and mismanaged Federal funding effort).

right as for the ease in producing Meth I have heard and yes, the mid-west including here in NWA there is a problem, but that does not mean Sandinistas are not bringing drugs into our country at an alarming rate. Now, I am not sure this subject doesn't belong on another thread..?? What do the rest of you think?

I agree. I apologize for veering off topic somewhat though drug use in general does relate to neighborhood safety. Bottom-line...avoid neighborhoods that have reps as "war" zones or are severely economically supressed. Create a positive environment at home. Expose your children to positive influences be it people and / or programs. In terms of public education, areas such as South Pasadena where funding on average is low, but test results high, are your best bet. Otherwise, private institutions can provide some insulation from the mean streets.

story of our move to AR would take a month to fill in the holes, but we love it, green, slow life style, rural living but we are only 20 minutes from great medical facilities, good restaurants and some culture and no, we do not marry our cousins, nor do we park our pick up trucks on the front grass.. The refrig is in the kitchen not the front porch and most of us no longer use outhouses..

We got married at St James Episcopal church..I won't tell you how many years ago, but it may have been before you were born.

Sierra Madre is a great little town except for only ONE thing. We are being bombarded by Chemtrails regularly, transforming our beautiful blue skies into gray toxic cloud cover lasting for days causing ears, eyes, nose, throat and skin irritatations. If you are not aware of chemtrails...google it. There is plenty of into there. The life you save may be your own.
