Keep On Truckin’

We’ve got to keep moving if we hope to make an impact on the war on drugs. Sometimes it might seem futile because each month there is another story of another drug bust or another life ruined. But think of it this way: every time drugs are removed from the street there are some people who do not get to them, and those lives are saved from ruin. Every time the police bring in a group from a local high school, it reminds all of the students that this is no laughing matter. A few more people who were thinking about giving drugs a try decide to give it a pass.

We were particularly proud in December 2012 that the Missouri River Drug Task Force was named as the “Rural Drug Task Force of the Year” for the Rocky Mountain Region. 151 felony arrests were made in 2011 and a number of people headed into life-altering treatment. As Leo Dutton from the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s office said, “We get good cases, prosecutors prosecute them and we get sentences, but people also get into treatment, so it isn't just about putting people in jail. It's about making people's lives better through intervention. Sometimes there is no other way.”

The folks over in Kalispell added to their list of arrests in December 2012 when they arrested seven young people for illegal drug dealing over in Glacier High School. Specifically, one was arrested for drug possession, two for possession of drug paraphernalia, and four for criminal distribution on or near school property.

These kids were only 14 and 15 years old. Sad to say, the drug trade is being accomplished by kids that are barely of high school age. But Principal Callie Langohr addressed the matter very quickly, somewhat in defense of her school. She pointed out that whenever there are drug arrests of Glacier students, people start thinking, “Wow, that’s a really drug-infested high school – better be careful there!” Instead she encouraged everyone to realize that what takes place inside their typical high school reflects what is taking place inside our typical American culture. Just as everywhere else, there are some kids making the poor decision to try drugs and others who are in it for the money.

Langohr pointed out that any and all drug trafficking is not tolerated at Glacier High School. And that means building a “Glacier community consisting of students, parents and staff that are willing to be proactive in helping administrators and the police department tackle the illegal drug activity” which they have done.
