And welcome to the Chronic Pain forum and to Healing Well. Thank you for your courage. Reporting someone who you know is breaking the law isn't easy and when you are talking about illicit narcotics it's even more frightening. Those who are using them for recreation or to support their habit are desperate if their supply dries up and they often will do most anything to get more. All police agencies have witness protection programs and if I were in your situation the first thing I'd ask the police is to let me use this program. They most likely will offer it to you first because they certainly don't want you in any jeopardy. And it might seem like overkill but it pays to be safe.
A case in point...my grandson attends college and was very late getting out of class one evening to start the long drive home. He stopped at a chain grocery store to get something to snack on. To make a long story short...a couple of thugs asked him for money and such and when he said no they pulled a knife. He got free, traveled about 1/2 mile and called the police. They arrived immediately, took the guys and he's fine. But he not only had this attempted assault but he witnessed one of them kicking the policeman who was trying to arrest him. So he was needed as a witness for trial. One of the first things they did was to offer him help through the witness protection program. In the long run he didn't need it as these guys basically confessed and are locked away.
I sympathize with your situation and commend you for your honesty. We need more people like you in this world. Any time I've done something similar in my life my family thinks I'm crazy for 'getting involved'. But if I don't, who will?
