Editorial: Ice forum a positive way to fight the problem
Editorial: YESTERDAY'S ice forum at the Gympie Civic Centre is a positive step toward combating the epidemic in the Gympie region.
More than 140 people turned up at the forum; for a work day that is a large crowd and shows the amount of concern about the problem in Gympie.
Ice is a terrible drug. It is highly addictive and is ruining people's lives on a daily basis.
It's just not the addiction that's a concern; its the crime related to ice.
Today's front page court story tells of how an ice addict went on a crime spree to support his addiction. It's a major problem that can only be combated by the community as a whole.
Yesterday's forum is the first step in that battle. I applaud all involved.
