West Virginia man calls 911 and turns himself in after watching President Obama talk about drug addiction.

"That's right buddy. I'm talking to you."

Like many West Virginians, a man from Cross Lanes watched President Obama address the drug addiction problem during his visit to Charleston on Oct. 21. 

Later that day, he called 911 and said he needed help for a drug addiction and asked that deputies be sent to his home. 

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office released details of the incident Wednesday in a release that ended with, "We applaud this person's self-initiated efforts and wish him well in his recovery." 

The Sheriff's Office said after repeated calls back from 911 operators that day, their deputies went to the man's home. They said he put his hands on the wall and said he needed help. 

The man, in his mid-30s, then showed Deputy J.A. Smith a cooler full of drugs that included included digital scales, 16 Suboxone packs and patches, marijuana, 19 grams of ecstasy and 158 pain pills. 

The man admitted he was a heavy drug user, had watched the President's speech and wanted to live a drug-free life for his mother.

It is kind of hard to call a President "ineffective" if just by talking on TV he can get drug abusers to turn themselves into the police.

I mean there is regular inspirational, and then there is President Obama inspirational.

    Oh, I don't know about that, Gryphen. They'll think of something. Maybe they'll accuse him of intruding in the man's personal life?

    Right, that's where a person with an addiction belongs, in prison. Laughable.

    I live north of Boston..the police chief in Gloucester has started a program for drug addicts to turn them selves in- they get help not arrested. A mentor and a rehab program So far it's been very successful!Treating drug addiction like a disease instead of a crime!

    I hope he gets sent to rehab and not to prison. I'll have hope for this man though he lives in West Virginia. That took a lot of courage (balls, man!) and intellect to face his problem. I applaud him.

    I wish this man well. It took courage to admit he had a problem in the first place. We need less litigation and more empathy.
    Is there any way we can clone President Obama and work his magic on workplace violence, domestic violence, gun killings and stupid rwnj candidates?

    I hope the fellow is able to get some good help and pull his life together. Life is way too short to waste time battling a drug addiction. Good for him for taking the first step.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
