There are already drugs on the street. And your kids will face that offer some day. Stop pretending you can hide them from it. I remember seeing it when I was in high school and middle school. To a kid, the fact that it is taboo will only increase the desire. That is one of the primary problems with alcohol consumption among young people today. Countries without underage bans on alcohol do not have rampant drunken children stumbling around the streets. Back to drugs, though. A lot of these illegal drugs came into use originally in medicine. Your outcry about meth, for instance, ignores the fact that it was distributed by both the Allies and the Axis in World War II. It has horrible side effects and is intensely addictive. Teach people that. It still has medical use, but is avoided due to the drug trade. Tobacco usage is going down. You think it's because tobacco is illegal now? Drugs are here. They always have been. If your child chooses drugs after you have educated them on how many such substances would tear their lives apart, then they would have chosen drugs when that guy at school offered them. The only difference in the two worlds is that one market was supplied from Mexico and cost our government a fortune in an impotent attempt to stop, the other was regulated and taxed.
