    Meanwhile ice is dealt at poipu pavilions and lydgate out in the open allowed by cops. Thanks Kawakami and racist police chief. Mahalos for raiding a smoke shop what a score. Go see for yourself cops. And no no don’t arrest the methheads that’s too easy nor is it the root of the problem.

      They can’t arrest the homeless meth and crack heads because there’s just too many of them in Kauai; where would they keep them all? Easier just to let them live (and die) in their little driftwood huts.

      As for the meth DEALERS and MAKERS, the cops and the DA know exactly where these criminal scumbags live and work out of, and yet they are allowed to proceed unhindered. You can guess why.

      It could be a conflict of interest to start arresting their customers and employees. It’s no wonder how so much drugs make it to the streets here.

    I couldn’t imagine with all the ice on Island and all the heroin on Island that KPD would invest 5 minutes in CBD stores.

    If it wasn’t for CBD I would still be on prescription pain pills which are horrible.

    Thank you KPD for shutting down my health clinic which kept me away from legal opioids.. due to chronic pain for a lot of injuries.

    Unbelievable and disappointing.

    They just bumbed out so many people that use it for pain. Probably got snitched on by the legal dispensary because they were losing business. The state can’t have rougue entities.
