A news flash for those that have been living in a cave. Between the welfare giveaways, the passivity of the citizens, and market for their poison, why wouldn’t dope dealers flock to Duluth?

DULUTH, MN –
As Duluth continues to battle a recent increase in shootings, and drug-related crime, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows two of the cities, that authorities say send a significant number of drug dealers to the Twin Ports, made the list of the nation’s fastest growing rates of murder.
The newspaper found Chicago and Milwaukee, along with Baltimore and Memphis, have seen homicide rates approaching, or exceeding, the records set 25 years ago during a plague of gangs and crack.
Murders in Chicago last year reached their highest level since 1996 with 27.8 murders for every 100,000 residents.
So far this year Chicago has seen 330 shootings with 17 victims killed.
There were 145 murders in Milwaukee last year.
So far this year, Milwaukee has seen 17 homicides compared with nine at this point last year.
As in Duluth, experts in these communities say its likely the drug market is the most significant catalyst for this escalation in violence.
