Crystal methamphetamine in Hawai'i

* This is partly why I don't like crystal methamphetamine in the islands... because no matter how strong people think that are they become controlled by the drug then innocent people end up getting hurt like children. To me it is the worse, most dangerous drug because it's so powerful. It goes directly to the brain cells! And ends up damaging brain cells! Over time, crystal methamphetamine appears to cause reduced levels of dopamine which can result in symptoms like those of Parkinson's disease and I've read that prolonged use/abuse causes paranoia. NOT good. Typically SOME Koreans and SOME Filipinos try to get Hawaiians hooked on it probably because it destroys Hawaiians and of course they want to get rid of Hawaiians. We all know that. That is why my first reaction is, "Get out of my fucking face!" I can't help it. More importantly it usually affects children (Hawaiian and non-Hawaiian) which I do NOT appreciate(!!!) Then again holding an Ice Baby does that to me. That is, it's one thing to want to kill yourself or WHATEVER but to put a child in Harm's Way... UNCOOL. Then again you can go to jail for drugs (possession, intent to distribute, etc) but you will not go to jail for having mutual sex with someone else. Pick your poison! I'd rather have mutual sex which is a better choice (excluding sex with minors OBVIOUSLY) if niele people MUST know:



3 charged in sex, drug case involving 11-year-old

WAILUKU » A woman and two men are accused of inducing an 11-year-old girl to smoke crystal methamphetamine.

Charged with unlawful methamphetamine trafficking to a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor are Rodney Bio, 26, of Kihei; his cousin Lovern Nicolas, 25, of Kahului; and Jennifer Magaoay, 18, of Waiehu Terrace. They will be arraigned next Tuesday in Maui Circuit Court.

If convicted, the three would face a mandatory sentence of 20 years in prison, the prosecutor's office said.

Bail has been set at $20,000 for Magaoay, $40,000 for Bio and $70,500 for Nicolas.

Bio also has been charged with attempted first-degree sexual assault, and Nicolas with six counts of third-degree sexual assault for sexual contact with the girl.

Deputy Prosecutor Robert Rivera said the case was not the first time a person as young as 11 was involved in the use of "ice."

Magaoay, a neighbor of the girl, is accused of inducing the 11-year-old into smoking the drug, police said.

The incident allegedly began on April 1 when the sixth-grade Maui girl was at Magaoay's home, then later traveled in a vehicle to various parts of Maui, authorities allege.

The girl went to Nicolas' house in Kahului, where he allegedly had sexual contact with her, police said.

Although the girl said she voluntarily lay on the bed with Nicolas, sexual contact with someone under age 14 is illegal, police said.

The girl later went to an area near the airport where Bio and Magaoay engaged in a sexual act.

Bio allegedly asked the girl to do the same with him, but she refused, the prosecution alleges.

Defense attorney Keith Tanaka said his client, Bio, kept asking if she was 16, and the girl said she was 16.

Tanaka said when the girl finally admitted that she was 11, Bio tried to take her home, but she refused to get out of the car.

Bio eventually dropped her off at her house, Tanaka said.

The girl's mother called police when she returned home.

Yeah... we all have our vices but drugs are not one of mine because I know that they're stronger than I am. Plus I saw one of my grand uncles go from being healthy and buff to someone incapacitated... in a wheelchair barely able to talk and/or walk.

Re: not strong either
Yeah... see if it was me and I hung around with people who do drugs then I would be one of those people. I guess I was fortunate and am fortunate that I never touched drugs yet I have an extremely addictive personality so I have my own vices. I just think that other vices (like sex and porn)are less destructive than drug use/abuse plus the risk of going to jail for possession and/or intent to distribute. I'd be too afraid to go to jail because then I wouldn't be able to have sex LOL Seriously... I think about these things so much that that is why I have never touched drugs.

Re: not strong either
But I didn't know that you were affected by it. I can see why you moved then.

Re: not strong either
Yes...my wife and I we both into the Club seen. We partied with drug dealers..hookers..strippers doing all sorts of stuff. It was all too addictive. Glad you didn't touch the stuff. I had to move 800 miles away to stop.

Yeah, even touching the stuff can give you MS later on. And yes, it seeps through plastic, including baggies that dealers sell it in. Hmm- Cash for permanent loss of all body control and paralyzation? Sounds like a winner!

hey, don't know you. but ran across your page from Lance...


"Typically SOME Koreans and SOME Filipinos try to get Hawaiians hooked on it probably because it destroys Hawaiians and of course they want to get rid of Hawaiians. We all know that."

how can you blame ice addiction in Hawai'i by labeling it that "typically" Koreans and Filipinos are getting Hawaiians hooked onto it, so that the Hawaiian race can be destroyed?

What evidence do you have to prove this?

Do you currently live in Hawai'i? Are you currently ACTIVE in the state, in the issues that you write about? Or are you just basing your reasonings from what you read in the newspaper articles, other online journals, and 2nd hand sources?


For someone who protrays themselves to be quite proactive towards Hawaiians, Hawai'i and all law and rights for all, that was a rather racist generalization

In no way, shape or form did I mean it to be racist and instead is based on data that I have read. I'll post it tomorrow.

Re: ......
That was printed on September 7, 2003.

Then according to the Department of Health, Hawai'i telephone survey in 1999, "Substance Abuse in Hawai'i" by Dr. John Gartrell, PhD, Dr. DW Wood MPH PhD, and Andrew Ovenden MA:

Seen here: http://www.hawaii.gov/health/substance-abuse/prevention-treatment/survey/report98/report98.pdf

Page 71

7.2 Methamphetamine Use in Hawaii

Rates of current methamphetamine use were lower than
rates of marijuana use (compare Table 7.1a, above with
Table 7.2a, below). However, gender differences in
prevalence were more pronounced for methamphetamine use.
Males (1.2% ± 0.2%) were four times more likely than
females (0.3 ± 0.1%) to report having used
methamphetamine in the 18 months prior to the survey. The
estimated prevalence rates of methamphetamine use for
females for the State as a whole were statistically
significant (i.e., more than twice their standard error)
even though these prevalence estimates appear relatively
small (See Appendix D, section 4, for an explanation of
standard errors in population estimates).

See Table 7.2a: Methamphetamine Use by Gender,
Age, Ethnicity, and County

Prevalence rates for males were high enough to be
statistically significant (significantly different from
zero) in all four counties. Gender differences were
largest on Kauai, where 2.8% of the males and none of the
females reported methamphetamine use. Gender differences
were also large for Hawaii County, where prevalence for
males was over six times as high as the prevalence for
females (2.0% ± 0.6% for males compared to 0.3% ± 0.3%
for females). However, none of the prevalence rates for
females within county were statistically significant
(twice or more their respective standard errors).
Prevalence rates for reported methamphetamine use (Table
7.2a) by young adults (18 to 34 years of age) were over
5 times the rates of methamphetamine use for adults 35
years of age and older (1.6% ± 0.3% versus 0.3% ± 0.1%).
Prevalence rates were highest for the counties outside
Honolulu, with the highest prevalence rates observed for
young males on Kauai (2.9% ± 0.9%). Prevalence rates for
young adults were only slightly lower for Hawaii (2.2% ±
0.8%) and Maui (2.2 ± 0.7%) Counties. Rates of
methamphetamine use were considerably lower for Honolulu
County, both for adults 18 to 34 years of age (1.4% ±
0.4%) and for adults 35 years of age and older (0.1% ±
0.1%). Methamphetamine use was not statistically
significant among this older group in Honolulu County.
Even with the relatively low prevalence rates for
methamphetamine use in Honolulu County, the fact that
Honolulu has a much larger population than other counties
still means that almost half of the roughly 6,400 users
in the State of Hawaii were young or male and living in
Honolulu County.

For the State of Hawaii as a whole, Hawaiians reported
the highest prevalence rates for methamphetamine use
(1.3% ± 0.3%) followed by Caucasians (0.9% ± 0.3%).
Japanese and Filipino adults did not have statistically
significant rates of methamphetamine use.

Prevalence
rates were highest for young Caucasian adults outside
Honolulu County, particularly those resident on Kauai
(2.9% ± 0.9%). The prevalence of methamphetamine use was
low for Hawaiians in Kauai and Maui Counties.
Methamphetamine prevalence was low for Japanese and
Filipino respondents in all counties.

Re: ......
As far as distribution:

According to the DEA:

"Ice continues to be smuggled into Guam from Hong Kong, Korea, the Philippines, and West Coast locations such as San Jose, CA; Seattle, WA; and Oregon. Recent intelligence indicates that most of the ice trafficking is still linked to Chinese traffickers sending multi-kilo quantity shipments from Hong Kong. However, the Filipino, Korean, and Vietnamese traffickers are still heavily involved in smuggling various amounts of this drug into Guam.

Guam and Saipan sit on the doorstep to Asia and are only a few short hours via air from such Asian cities as Manila, Taipei, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul. With a multitude of ice production labs that are able to manufacture ice cheaply existing in the Philippines, the Peoples Republic of China, Korea and Taiwan, relatively large quantities of the drug can be transported to Guam and Saipan where it commands a much higher price and where a larger user population exists. The cost of ice in Guam/CNMI is approximately seven times the purchase price in the domestic U.S."

Re: ......
So to answer your questions:

"What evidence do you have to prove this?"

I've listed some of them above.

"Do you currently live in Hawai'i?"

No but I own property in Hawai'i and go home often, read the paper, pay property taxes in Hawaii'i, etc.

"Are you currently ACTIVE in the state, in the issues that you write about?"

Yes.

"Or are you just basing your reasonings from what you read in the newspaper articles, other online journals, and 2nd hand sources?"

It's a combination of my personal experiences as well as news sources. I hardly if ever base it on another online journal.

"For someone who protrays themselves to be quite proactive towards Hawaiians, Hawai'i and all law and rights for all, that was a rather racist generalization."

I don't think so. As early as 1999-2000 The Department of Health, Hawai'i has revealed that Hawaiians have the highest prevalence rates for methamphetamine use (1.3% ± 0.3%) followed by Caucasians (0.9% ± 0.3%). Japanese and Filipino adults did not have statistically significant rates of methamphetamine use. On top of that the DEA reported that the source "continues to be smuggled into Guam from Hong Kong, Korea, the Philippines, and West Coast locations." I go by sources. I don't pull it out of my ass and no... it's not racist. It's based on a combination of personal experiences like people whom I know as well as on data that has been compiled.
