Get Drug Paraphernalia OUT of Durham Stores!

Whereas drug paraphernalia is any legitimate equipment, product or material that is modified for making, using, or concealing illegal drugs such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine, and

Whereas easy access to drug paraphernalia is undermining our community, and

Whereas law enforcement officials have confirmed that “glass stems” are being modified for use as pipes to smoke (crack) cocaine and methamphetamine, and

Whereas the Rose in the Glass “glass stems” are currently sold in Durham stores,

Now, therefore, let it be resolved that the Durham People’s Alliance asks that Durham City and County include these and similar glass stems in the list of banned drug paraphernalia.

Support for Regional Rail

Over ten years ago, the Triangle Transit Authority predicted that the Triangle will experience transportation problems that will “affect its livability and mobility, including a loss of community identity and open spaces, less efficient and high-cost transit services, increasing highway congestion and a lack of alternative transportation choices”.

Now that the Triangle has a population of 1.2 million people, an increase of 39% from 1990 to 2000, we cannot say that the TTA didn’t tell us so. Our community has an opportunity to be more mobile for more people. We also believe the citizenry has the responsibility for protecting the environment. The Durham People's Alliance strongly supports TTA’s efforts in bringing regional rail to the Triangle.
