No wonder. There are actually politicians who believe that eastern Kentucky should become its own state because they believe that the money put into programs that help people on drugs and in poverty here, the continuing population loss here, and this part of the state's reputation hurting Kentucky's overall reputation so much that it keeps the rest of the state from prospering better than it has. I'm from Bowling Green. I'm visiting my cousin near Hazard this week. After spending a few days in eastern Kentucky, I can't imagine why anyone would want to live here. Yeah, the mountains are very beautiful here, but my goodness, there are beautiful mountains in other states that are doing much better in many ways than this one is, especially this part of it. I believe that Kentucky needs to legalize casinos and game rooms (not drugs of any kind, other than pot for medical reasons only, because legalized drugs is the last thing that Kentucky needs, considering that the drug problem in Kentucky is already out of control as it is and getting worse every year), then eastern Kentucky needs to jump at that opportunity ASAP, then people would finally start to see money (legally) pour into the eastern part of the state and entice other types of businesses, other than greasy burger restaurants and Family Dollar Stores, to come to eastern Kentucky, too. Will it ever happen though? Well, probably not because that just makes too much sense.

I wonder how many local people around here will apply for a job at that aluminum company, if it does actual come here, but won't get a job there just because they can't pass a drug test. Remember though, Pikeville, a place that is doing much better than Hazard, was supposed to get a 300 million dollar battery plant that was going to create at least 800 jobs starting out, but that company decided not to relocate there after all that planning and talk about it that get so many people's hopes up. That was an enormous let-down for the people of that area. 800 new, good-paying jobs would have been such a great thing for Pikeville. It's just best to not count your chickens before they hatch.
