  • Done With Living Here

    These meth heads NEED to be dealt with. They will not stop and the problem is getting worse, not better. Prop 47 dumped these people in our laps to deal with directly. Burglary, robbery, home invasions, shoplifting, it’s all through the roof now. I already had to deal with some. Eureka is a toilet and it makes me glad I am finally leaving this place for good. Thanks to marijuana and drugs, it will never get better.

    • It it terrible how Eureka has become, but running from the problem isnt the answer!!! We need to take back our town , and run this —- out of town. Other communities have done it, why cant we? If we got rid of all the drunks. druggies and scummy people, we would have a sweet town again!!!

    • Hopefully with recreatonal weed becoming legal it will drive down high profits and many folks will pick up sticks and leave .sure a few businesses may close but it’s a small price to pay for cleaning up humboldt.

      • It aint the guys with the money that are running around stealing shit out of your garage. Legalizing weed won’t clean this place up. The bums will just have more doe to spend on the hard drugs. The tweekers and junkies aren’t going anywhere unless you make ’em.
