Re: “Cocaine in Charleston

I’ve lived it. I’ve been out drinking with Thomas, but never shared coke with him. But my story isn’t quite as glamorous as Ravenel’s or the others in this article. I lost everything. Two houses, two boats, a great job and career, I lost over 70 pounds, all in a matter of two years. I’ve knew the dealers, played the game, came so close to getting busted I wouldn’t even care to tell the stories. But, I walked away. I had friends who believed in me and allowed me to escape. I’m slowly building back the life I had, but this time, no coke. My story might be somewhat different than Ravenel’s; he is living his story out in the media, in front of his family, and friends. I, on the other hand, left Charleston behind, I am nothing more than a memory to the friends I once had in Charleston. I miss them, but don’t miss what I left behind. If people realized the damage the drug is doing, has done, and the impact it has on the economy of Charleston, all would be surprised. What do you think the economy of the east side, as well as many other areas of Charleston County is based on? It’s not on blue collar, white collar, or any legal job, it’s based on the trade of drugs. Charleston County authorities know if they eliminate drug trade from the county, there would be a whole lot more people on welfare and other government subsidies.
