There is a prolific drug culture in West Hollywood. The City Council, City Manager and Director of Public Safety have not proposed any effort to stop it or at least slow it down. Not even as much as public warnings, seminars or billboards. As long as our elected officials and City Directors don’t care that members of our community are dying, this sort of thing will continue to happen. Due to the apathy of our “Leaders”, the blood of the dead (including at 1234 Laurel Ave.) is permanently on their hands. We as a community need to look out for each other and our “Leaders” need to stop putting their own personal promotion before the protection of our Citizens. I have been saying for years that we need a undercover Sheriff’s unit to infiltrate the drug culture in West Hollywood to put a stop to the sources and distributors to make it clear that drug dealers will be held accountable in West Hollywood. No one should have to die because of Dereliction of Duty of our City “Leadership”. Our Community is made up of people, not buildings, not contractors, not big donors, not vendors, not billboard companies, but rather people. Sometimes people make poor choices in life. It is our duty as fellow human beings to watch out for one another and protect each other from public safety hazards such as (but not limited to) the availability of drugs and public education and warnings. Shame on our City “Leadership” for doing little to nothing about drug education and prevention.
