This is the tip of the ummm...iceberg. Believe me. I like the idea of a meth hotline. We need one on Oahu. This is an island and we should be able to keep it off the island better than we are. It is deadly. I am amazed that neighbors in hoods where it exists put up with it and what it does to the community. In North Dakota the men in the community would take care of the problem. But then we had men in our communities. Few out here
