  • They sure don’t look very happy!

    • Addiction isn’t a fun place to be. It’s hard to overcome the fear to step out of one’s own darkness to ask for help. It sucks being an addict you basically tell yourself when you wake up that day this will be the day I quit. It’s a shitty vicious cycle. So I beg anyone who has an addiction problem reach out for help, it’s worth it. Some of us know exactly what it is like to survive hell.

      • Thank you for your thoughtful insight and advise. Hopefully, it might help others to break the vicious cycle.

        • Lovin Life , thanks for the help, you are obviously in a 12 step program, and thanks be to God you are. Your sincerity shows in your writing skill, you have the ability to put to paper what the heart feels, and that is exactly what an addict needs. keep coming back.

      • That’s exactly why these two should be put away for life. They were selling it to the users. Punish the ones who profit from the addicts.

        • They are the addicts.

        • You don’t get it do you? So what you are saying we should put people who sell tobacco, alcohol, food, etc in prison for life because they are selling to addicts. We should put every pharmaceutical company in prison for dealing to addicts. We should put every Casino operator in jail because people who are addicted to gambling go there to feed their Jones.

  • I wonder how much their ticket will be and how many hours were that at the jail?

    • I wonder if we’ll ever stop reading the same comment in different variations when stories like this are posted ?

      • When the same people continue to get arrested repeatedly for the same offenses, the public is tired of our law enforcement saying they are under staffed. These kind of criminals are a repeat waste of resources, and LE shouldn’t have to be repeatedly wasting their time. The revolving doors at our courthouse/jail are wearing out !!!

        • Yep californians voted this horsecrap in. Bunch of yuppy ass pansys who want “legal” 75$ eighths of weed and let out all “non violent” criminals throgh a revolving door! This means they can steal from you and be let out tomorrow….if not only a ticket.Voters are actually feeding there drug addiction. Thanks libs.Crime rate is up for humboldt and killing the mom n pop weed money will only lead to more REAL drug house’s like this.Humboldt is gonna be left a ripp off tweeker haven with drug sales being more meth/heroin than weed! Well….. at least i can still own guns to protect my self from rippoff tweeker scum…..o wait….guns are bad,lets take those away too libs. Now lets have tweeker rippoffs rule the world! Great job california.

        • The problem is that we punish behavior instead of correcting it.

    Haysoos Cruces. Damn. Sad.

  • Aged 19 and 24.

  • In real life, they were blow flys. Just turning back into a fly now.

  • Trillium Hummingbird

    Great. Smack and meth. Northern Humboldt. Jeeze. Classic. What a pair of deuces…

    • Trillium Hummingbird

      Inpatient rehab. 28 days. Good luck!

      Meanwhile, stupid drug crime clogs up life in a beautiful place.

      Kids: Heroin is yucky! Meth, OMG, really??

      Don’t kill yourself! Needle to vein, just don’t start… It’s awful that so many people mess up their lives with drugs, alcohol, tobacco and Marijuana.

      Be the example: live clean and sober. Don’t grow weed or sell poison to your fellow man. Don’t buy alcohol or tobacco from evil companies that don’t care if it kills you!

      You can’t raise drug free kids in a drug choked environment.

      • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

        Precisely why marijuana needs to be stomped out!

        You can’t raise drug free children in a drug chocked environment.

        Every marijuana grower is responsible for every drug addict out there.

      • Jail liability if either of them is known to be off their rocker and comes to harm there. But these two ladies look like they’re businesswomen holding their own just fine. (Minus the shortened life expectancy and horror of heroin addiction) Where is the heroin coming from? It would be so easy to insert people in local communities, or just interview some of the landlords of the low rent areas around the County to get the lowdown on the stop and go traffic and where it’s coming and going from.

  • Those ladies look wore- the- f-out.

  • Look at what drugs have done. Geeze

  • Veterens friend

    Both of them younger than I am, looking old enough to be my mother. Life is hard.

  • My mother was a meth addict for years now she’s clean & all she does is smoke her weed which is fine with me

  • Does anyone know if either of Traci Walden convicted? I have been told the police informant is living with her on my property.
