WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Two people have been arrested in a drug bust in the Williston area that authorities say netted $300,000 worth of methamphetamine and $30,000 in cash.

A 49-year-old man and 41-year-old woman were arrested Wednesday at their rural Williams County home on various drug-related charges.

Sheriff Scott Bushing says more arrests are possible in the case.

    Its amazing how convoluted individuals can become after being introduced to this substance.
    I've known several people who after being subjected to much peer pressure, gave in. Their life, their dreams, everything shattered over one mistake.
    The myriad of possibilities each one of these addicts could have achieved; if not introduced to meth, is disheartening.

    I suppose that does not exactly leave them optionless, but surely makes matters even more hard.
    I've seen people recover, but not cured.
    There is no cure for life, just a remedy.

    And I know damn well prison is not going to help them recover, but merely force them to abstain from use. So as to keep them off the streets, and out of mind.

    Is that whats become of those who fall?

    What happened to empathy in our society?
    What are we teaching the children?

    Why do we condition not only children, but adults to accept taking prescriptions and mind altering substances to distort or cloud the world we live in?
    Its sickening.

    the new slogan for meth should be it doesnt do the brain good.
    find a site on meth and make it mandatory for your kids to read it, educate them on where there heading after just one dose. And You got to know by now out of state gangs find the quiet rural life ideal for making meth be more watchful of out of state plates and there grocery list.

    One has to wonder if pot were legal and could compete with the cheap prices of meth if it would cut meth usage? I am not even going to pretend to know for sure but I think it might. Most people know pot is no where near as bad for you but they choose meth because it is cheaper and easier to get.

    Always the older group with meth these days. It really seems like young people know this stuff is poison these days. Good deal. I watched close friends nearly kill themselves with this stupid stupid drug.
