Not where I’m at. This is happing in large urban areas, almost exclusively.

With out the illegal drug trade there would be no incentive to kidnap these people.
I sold retirement homes in Central Florida during the 80’s and I loved when the folks from Ohio came down. Really put a damper in those obnoxious folks from the northeast!
We’re a tad messy, but fun at parties...(chuckle)
LOL! You have no idea!
