Drug use at Hoboken parks
I’m sure many of you have seen the plethora of discarded drug bags all over the city.
Last week, I went down to Pier A park to get an afternoon of fishing in (instead of covering the Mile-Square Film-Festival… smart choice, right?) There were countless little “dime bags” such as this spewn throughout the parks pathways (along with beer bottle-caps too). Not sure if it was marijuana, or something much worse, like cocaine or crack.
Despite the Hoboken Police-force performing routine “detail checks” of each city park multiple times per day (they drive through in their air-conditioned, ozone-depleting squad cars), illegal public consumption of drugs and alcohol still seems to be rampant. “Mommy, what are all those bags on the sidewalk?”
What is this, Irvington?
