I do not condone drug use but you have to wonder about the mentality of those who deal in quantity and carry it around in their cars.

Rt. 80 is a known drug highway and any idiot going 113 MPH at 3:35 in the morning on that road is providing an open invitation to law enforcement. ........Dumb and dumber !

A check of the Mahoning County Court docket finds all three are currently under a community control program for drugs. For Alden Young, this is also his 4th arrest for excessive speed but apparently the first with a cache of illegal drugs in his car. But, I'm sure they are all good boys and they love their momma's.

Now it's up to the judges to finally take action and put these three low-lifes behind bars for a long time.

May they rot in prison. This will greatly improve the Youngstown neighborhoods where they live.

Yes let us lock them up and waste even more money fighting the failed war on drugs.

The next time a violent criminal gets paroled early I'm sure you'll all feel better knowing the money to keep that person in prison was diverted to imprison drug users.
