    "Pot is the beginning phase of addiction"

    Alcohol is the real gateway drug and is usually a person's first experience with intoxication. Prescription drugs kill more people than cocaine and heroin combined. People don't think of alcohol and prescriptions as being as bad because they're legal, but it doesn't make them any less dangerous. The fact cigarettes are legal shows there's no real concern for anyone's health.

    Well about a year ago, there was a shooting a couple streets from this one, Bojangles up the street had an armed robbery a few days ago and now this.....I really wish I would win the lottery so I could leave Hoodingham.

    @Holy Carp that is ridiculous; I don't blame you for moving. @fishon I don't think that is private info because it is government funded and I am not asking for specific names.

    This guy got arrested back in Oct 2012 for drug paraphernalia. Found it on Mug Shots. I couldn't post the link because the filter grags his last name. ///face palm///

    "Very strange that since gun control has become a hot topic, gun crimes have apparently risen exponentially. "

    It would be strange if it were even remotely true. Of course, it isn't, but that won't stop you from drawing conclusions based on your own biases. Looking at news articles is a HORRIBLE way to look for real trends in criminal behavior. By definition, the "news" is all the unusual events. If something is happening all the time, it isn't "news".

    "I didn't know that Hedingham accepted Section 8 housing. That was one of the first questions I asked when I moved there because where I came from had started accepting section 8 housing. Jeez, this keeps getting worse and worse."

    Apparently my last comment about being lied to by the developers didn't make it through. I moved to "HeadingScam" back in '97 and was told that the back side of the development was going to be 250k up houses. I didn't purchas a big house in Headingham but expected that if what I was told to be true it would certainly help my property value. Well, in late 98 early 99 they started building the duplex cookie cutter rental stuff back there instead of the big houses. 8 Yrs in Headingham and I only had 8k appreciation on the sale. I moved because of 2 break-in's on my street in less than 6 months both within 4 doors of my house.

    gobbled-Google pulls up someone from SC. Didn't find anything from NC. Even went to the NC division of adult correction website and couldn't find anything.

    I heard that since Section 8 is personal information they may not be able to tell you if it is or will be section 8. Is that true?
