Scourge of ice evident in Exmouth
I lived in Exmouth in the 1980s and some of the 1990s employed by the US Navy and Australian Defence Industries on the HF communication sites.
My three children grew up in Exmouth and two of them still live there.
Back when I was living there, marijuana was used by some of the townspeople, but no major problems existed back then.
Recently, I returned to Exmouth for a visitafter hearing about the epidemic of ice in the town.
This drug is the worst I have ever seen — I had a cousin in the US who was a user and dealer and is now a shell of a person at 33 years old.
She and her husband served time in jail and lost custody of their children.
Now, I am here only a few days and it seems like almost nothing has been done about the excessive ice usage here. Drug dealing is taking place frequently all over the town — especially in the parking lot behind the bank.
Many people living here are really frustrated and concerned their young children and going to get hooked on this “devil’s drug”.
Some of the high school kids have been using and selling, and a 16-year-old boy performed armed robbery at a gift shop.
The decent townspeople are sick and tired of this most deadly substance and its lifestyle.
It is high time this mess was taken care of. Eddie Williams Northern Marianas Islands
