Marion VA is blowing an opportunity because of the meth problem here.
A simple trip to town and you will see it.
They have a college here now, and other opprotunities, but many who would be living here, and spending their money here, have located to Abbingdon just to the west.
The city looks, sick. Very thin people walking around with sores on them, people coming to your door in the middle of the night, stoned off their butts, etc.
A 12 year old kid yelled, “F- you” at me the other day, just because he could. Clearly he wasn’t raised in the best of families. Big brother is a doper.
This bothers me.
Then, many here will complain that they can’t find a job. Duh.
This is my community now. This pisses me off. I’m going to do something about it.
The city has the broken window syndrome.
Gonna start going to county, and city board meetings and raising hell. If that doesn’t work, I’ll start a media campaign.
