Drug Alert

Now perhaps this is not new news, but it is new news to me. I think that it is something we all need to be visually aware of.
My daughter just came down to inform me that she knew why we see shoes or boots hanging over telephone lines..... she had been watching "Extreme Home Makeover" (gotta love Ty), anyway..... a neighbourhood was getting a face-lift and this piece of information was shared.
Shoes or Boots hanging over phone or cable wires indicates that drugs are being sold near by. And apparantely different colours represent different drugs...... they are a clever and sneaky bunch.

Heads up, watch for wires.
I, like some other people thought it was just silly kids, which of course it could be in some cases.... but- ya never can be to careful with drug dealers. Pin It


  1. I've seen this before and wondered. Know that we all know, thought, they'll have to come up with a different "sign".

  2. It's true. We live in a wonderful historic area but the surrounding streets are "less than desirable" and there are shoes and boots hanging on every corner. We keep our kids close and we all watch out for each other. But more than anything, we know that because we have made Christ our dwelling, He's put his angels around us. Blessings... Polly

  3. OH my goodness. I always wondered why someone would be so nasty as to throw someones shoes up there and I always wondered WHY it is something that is so common.
    Lovely. Said with much sarcasm.

  4. I can assure you that this means DRUGS SOLD HERE!
