    About the only thing keeping Mason city from totally spiraling into a inner city filled with vagrancy is it gets very cold during the winter.

      At least the bitter cold has some use i guess… I used to despise late fall all the way to mid spring. thanks for helping me find something positive about it. How can we force the tweakers to freeze and die each winter like other insects?

    heres one for ya. just tell the people whos job it is to police iowa that they have priorities instead of letting them run rampant dealing with victimless crime or things that dont really pose any danger to the public. just tell all iowa leo their absolute number one priority is busting meth dealers nothing more nothing less. whatever this roundtable is it isnt gping to do a single thing to curb meth use. reynolds is such a stupid twat.

    You want to see methheads? Just look on the street and you will see all the tweaker’s on their bikes pulling their little trailers with everything they own on them. They are everywhere but out especially at night going from one drug house to another.

        half of them probably ARE the drug task force. you must be pretty naive to think youre gonna actaually get results out of mason cities corrupt leo’s? how long have you lived here? have you seen less meth heads in the last fifteen years or has it grown and just gotten out of control? it hasnt gotten better. vigilante justice could clear it up in about a week. but probably only would last about a week. cops have had since the late 80’s to stop this shit and they dont seem to understand. you have to hit the big dealers and get their sources not bust tweakers with quarter grams or low level dealers with ounces. try hitting some dboys or chicago gang members that live locally before we have a heroin epedemic in this little shithole.

        What is sad is wearing a backpack isnt even worth it anymore because people just assume youre a loser meth user. at least thats how mason city works. when you leave this town it is amazing how small minded and preoccupied with stupid shit everyone is compared to anywhere else.

          When you look at the people with those backpacks and their faces and legs are covered in sores, it doesn’t take a scientist to figure it out what they are carrying in them! Oh, and don’t forget the tweeking that gives it away too!

    North Korea makes the best meth in the world. A man made chemical that destroys the life essence of the cells in a person’s body. Deadly as it may be Asia has a much bigger problem then that of America. It’s a global problem now. The Drug czar should fold up shop and she should just go home. You want to stop meth. Build a big wall.
