Small towns all over the United States are getting serious about drug use and distribution and law enforcement is cracking down. In mid-August, Batavia, New York saw two drugs-related arrests within a day of each other. A young man on parole was alleged to have been carrying cocaine when he was stopped by the police and was also alleged to have illegal drug-related paraphernalia in his home. Separately, a young woman is alleged to have made an attempt to sell cocaine to an undercover police officer for a second time within a six-month period. Drug charges were filed against both persons.
