    Drug houses in this area of town has been a problem for quite some time. They should be all closed down and the landlords who rent to these people should have some responsibility of overlooking these properties and making sure there is no disturbance to the neighbors. People deserve to live in a safe environment. There are small children in the area who are exposed to all this activity and would certainly, in my opinion, have a lasting effect on these innocent children.
