Dear Sheriff, we have a very serious alcohol problem in Nevada County in case you haven't noticed. It's leading to an epidemic of crime, violence and death and there's not much you seem to be doing to help address it, even though you have a rabid approach to other less harmful drugs. Is it because alcohol is your personal drug of choice? Please try to focus on that #1 recreational drug problem instead of wasting massive amounts of time and money on less serious issues. Thanks, A Concerned Citizen
