Fort-McMurray Another Hit
Since the opening of the oil fields and mining operations, Fort McMurray has had its share of strangers arriving for work. This recent drug bust in Fort McMurray opened a platform to comment about the area.
With the hard work comes some real hard playing. Over the years, things have not changed much; back in the day, there were no drugs, but you could find a saloon and some real strong whiskey, a bunch of guys to play some poker or blackjacks with and after the game, maybe buy a sweet-smelling whore to soothe the aching muscles before your next shift.
Today, the story is the same; people come from all over Canada to get a good-paying, hard-working job. With twenty-one days in and three or four days out of camp, not much different from back in the day. But now, there is one difference: money clawing leeches all around such areas of the north called drug dealers.
Drug Dealers & Money
The drug dealer knows where the money is and will stop at nothing to get his product in the hands of the unsuspecting money-earning worker. There are so many drugs in and around Fort McMurray that personnel turnaround is one of the highest in the country. The drug rehab centers can’t even keep up with the demand for drug addiction treatment programs. And the local law enforcement will stop one dealer, and two more spring up.
Praying on the honest worker’s income to make money by selling them illicit drugs to alleviate their loneliness, fears, and stresses that result in addiction is just plain evil. You will also notice that any time the law enforcement officers close down a crack house dealer or a bar lingering cocaine peddler, the better off Fort McMurray becomes.
The drug dealer doesn’t care about your marriage, job, or health. Their sole intention is to sell drugs no matter who or how. Because the drug dealers are so intent on drugs, they cannot think about anything else.
So the next time you see a drug dealer in a bar, or you know of a co-worker getting sucked into the world of drug addiction, tell someone who can do something about it. Tell the local police where the drug dealers are, tell them who is doing it and get the stuff out of our businesses and communities.
Just like the recent drug bust in Fort McMurray, someone tipped off the police. And when they executed a bust, maybe the action spares a few more lives. Don’t ever be afraid to speak out and stand up, and disagree with things that are more harmful than beneficial.
