Post Study - School Drug Problems Getting Worse!

As teenagers say drug problems at school are getting worse, many parents are expressing doubts about ever making such schools drug free, and a majority of parents are seemingly less concerned about drug dangers, a new study says.

Thank God I only have two years of public school left with my youngest child. I can see how it would be getting bad. Kids have to grow up to quick these days with out any choice in the matter. Not that they did before but these problems were not in the schools before. I think there will come a time when the only way to protect them is home school I have LESS than two years and the party is over with the public school system. I must say south Bossier has a great system and that we have been blessed by having our children go to these good schools. So much dictated as to where you live and who you children will grow up with.

I don't know what the solution is for this rampant problem. I do know in the high school over here that the police randomly bring in drug sniffing dogs and they go through the entire school while students are present. Of course they can only do this so often. I do like the idea that efforts are being made.

It's like I said in the sagging pants thread. How bad has it gotten when the law has to come down to make us all act right? Is the law going too far or are we?

If I ever found drugs in my kid's (when I eventually have some) possession, he wouldn't sit down for a week.

You would strike your child Anime that could cause childhood trauma and have a lasting effect on your young breed

I think that's the whole point. The lasting effect is what will keep them straight. I was raised by a single mother who believed in capital punishment with a leather belt. Now that I'm 25 years old, I don't drink, smoke, do any kind of drugs, I have a good job, served some time in the military, and I've never done anything morally stupid (like getting a girl pregnant prior to marriage).

The best solution is the obvious one everybody immediately discounts because they don't have a clue: legalization.

Are there bootleggers selling bathtub gin in our schools? You why not? Because alcohol is legal, and thus more difficult to obtain. Legalization destroys the profit of the criminal and thus ends the benefit of risking illegal selling.

When you make all possession and sale of a substance illegal you guarantee two things:

1. A large profit for those that traffic in it.

2. That anyone involved in its sale is by definition a criminal and thus unlikely to discriminate amongst customers. Drug dealers don't card.
