Hamlin Reviews

1 review
Hamlin is a small town in West Virginia. It is eat up with drug addicts and drug dealers. There is nothing to do there. You have to travel 35-40 minutes each way to have any fun. They need to clean the town up and build some entertainment venues for kids and young adults to go to. The sad part is that the kids are exposed to the drugs and it's a trap they fall into.
