LETTER: Casual drug users have link to gang killings, says Langley letter writer

The Lower Mainland is in the midst of another gang war and the illicit drug market is part of it

Dear Editor,

Re: Gangland Shootings in Langley and LMD

The ongoing gang warfare in Langley and many other areas in B.C. is at least partially funded by local residents who choose to buy casual amounts of illicit drugs from their neighbourhood “pushers”. It seems unlikely that the heavy users are the only customer of these gangs, or even the main customers. So, if you are a casual drug user and are concerned about gang related shootings and related violence, look in the mirror.
