Cracking down on drugs was one of the topics at Clarksburg City Council's conference session Thursday afternoon.

Council discussed an ordinance that's currently in place in Fort Wayne, Indiana called the Drug House Ordinance. This focuses on illegal drugs in residential, commercial and rental properties. This would make the owner responsible for that activity. Still, additional research has to be done by the City of Clarksburg before making it a law here.

"We have to keep in mind, that we have to work with the Harrison County drug task force, because we would never do something that would interfere with any investigation that they have. So, there is a lot of legal issues with that particular ordinance and we're going to continue to get more information on that," said Cathy Goings, Mayor of Clarksburg. 

The city will be gathering additional information on this ordinance before proceeding.

THese liberal radical idiots get even more foolish by the day. You cannot hold others responsible for something someone else is doing, morons! THAT is unlawful, unjust and predictably another Radical Liberal idea!!! Keep it up and none of you will be holding an office in any city, county, state or national govt position again. The people have had enough of ignorant laws that refuse to hold the "Law BREAKER" responsible for his/her own actions. Blaming OTHERS is a radical LIBERAL position to avoid themselves from being guilty of their own crimes!
