Marc Lamarre Update

We have chosen not to report on Marc Lamarre, but we continue to get lots of hits for information about him. We would like to redirect you to WSLS, in this article they have links to much of the information on Marc, and they also include Criminal Complaint and Affadavit vs. Gilbert Dennis Hadden.

There are also 44 pages of readers comments that can be read.

Our site has always taken a strong stand against drug use and drug distribution. But there are victims. Marc Lamarre is one of many. Victims are not found in the media, but with our neighbors and friends. Drugs affect all levels of society, and cause all forms of crimes in our community.

It also leaves a trail of victims like Marc Lamarre.

True, drug use does not discriminate against social status, race or gender. However, I don't think calling someone who chooses to use drugs a victim is truly accurate. Yes, drugs are addictive, but one only becomes an addict by choosing to participate in drug use in the first place. We need to start putting the blame where it belongs, on the user. And support those who choose to stop use by getting the proper help and accountability.

That was a good post, Bob. I ranted quite a bit around the house as this story was released, but I am glad I didn't post anything about it either. It's a tragedy no matter how you look at it. I wish Marc and his family the best.

Having said that, I wish WSLS would refrain from running news stories about their own employees. It just doesn't look right.

Thanks for the update. Marc is not being very forthcoming in that interview, either he is in denial still or is trying to evade a possession charge from the police.

He DOESN'T REMEMBER what he took? Yeah, right!

I feel sorry for Marc Lamarre. I am angry with WSLS. They should have totally excused themselves from this story since Marc was their employee. Instead, they do a disservice to us all by doing a soft interview. I wish Marc the best wherever he goes.

I agree with what ElizabethP says. If people would stop choosing to use there wouldn't be any victims. And if they stopped choosing to use, dealers wouldn't exist. It is time our society stop making excuses for everyone and hold people accountable for their choices.

When my youngest step son was three he got a swat from his dad for getting ready to put screwdriver in the light socket and the screwdriver was taken away from him and he was told it was dangerous. His great-grandmother patted him on the head and said, "That's okay, you can do that at my house." Now, I don't think Nanny really knew what was going on, she just operated on the assumption that boys will be boys and we should not get too upset about it.

Likewise, our society has grown great at the blame game and finding excuses for aberrant behavior. We are reaping what we sow on that one...just take a look at the respect level most children have for their parents.

So let's stop giving people excuses and start giving them a tough, but loving helping hand!

I so fucking agree. The victim was Gilbert. He was accused of doing something that he did not do. Where is the justice at. What the fuck is wrong with this world? Marc should have done 2 years in prison to kick is fucking habit. Him having a habit is not Hadden fault. Man the criminal justice system is so fucked up I dont know why I am going to school for this shit. Oh to make a fucking change in this fucked up system..
