On Saturday October 10th, the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) sponsored a presentation by the Drug Enforcement Officer for Kodiak (name withheld for anonymity as he works under cover).
Ten women from the WFWP attended and put on a light lunch for the 5 guests who came to the meeting.
The officer shared how the presence of drugs in Kodiak has been increasing partly because the dealers coming from out of state can get almost twice as much for their drugs here as they can in the lower 48, and partly because Kodiak seems like an open place with very little surveillance compared with other airports and sea ports.
He showed some examples of what to look for in your tenants’ or teenagers’ room. Things like specially engineered soft drink cans with removable bottoms, and hidden compartments in cases normally used to carry fishing or hunting gear.
He said that the reason most often given by young people who are caught with drugs, is that they were bored.
