How much of this drug dealing is in relation to the economic situation of Orleans County?

That's a good question. Do you have any ideas about it?

Orleans County is one of the poorest counties in New York State and has one of the highest unemployment rates.

Drug dealing certainly keeps the police and correction officers employed.

Of course, without a demand there would be no supply. So do you think that the demand is influenced more signficantly by the economic situation or the supply?

Thanks for your good question,

David Markham
