Snydbob " "up-scale" people do not commit crimes or use drugs, alcohol maybe, but not drugs!"

You can't be serious. The cocaine epidemic of the '80'a was all about "upscale." As a matter of fact, it's the drug dealers that are going to be able to afford these "upscale" apartments.

Just so you know, Snydbob, addiction knows no socioeconomic boundaries. Addiction does not discriminate based on race, sexual orientation, religion or lack thereof.

Who can afford UPSCALE apartments? If you can afford them, then in many cases you may as well buy a house.

They will not need to be registered because they are "up-scale" and "up-scale" people do not commit crimes or use drugs, alcohol maybe, but not drugs!

@hopeforfuture...perhaps they need to be "registered." After all, those who deal in the drug trade are often exactly the folks who will be able to afford the no doubt exorbitant rents that will be charged. The nuns must be spinning in their graves!
