    After seeing all those drug-related articles, I think that the genetic alcohol and drugs usage theory can be true. That makes sense if we check the past of drug addicted persons. This is sad, really sad, but it is a huge discovery for science.

    It is long past time to get City Goverment that will fund the PD and hire the Cops needed to take Navasota back from the drug dealers, hookers and non working stealing residents. We need a fully staffed PD that is paid to stay around. We do not neeed more new buildings and airports to fly drugs in, so little people can look like big city hotshots in Navasota city hall in the middle of a ganglnad war zone.
