wilco Drugs menace ..Are we to blame? (84* d) RE: Drugs menace ..Are we to blame? 14 Aug 03


The original question was, "Do we bear any responsibility?" YES.

    I've worked with youngsters with drug problems (including alcohol) since 1968. I've had thousands of kids in counseling.
    Thirty years ago, the conversations would go like this:

Parent to child: "Why are you using this stuff" (Marijuana, speed,
etc.)
Child to parent: " You do the same thing with alcohol. Your generation's drug of choice is alcohol. Mine is _________."

    Fast forward, and now the drugs are crack or heroin for the kids.
And, the parents drugs are marijuana and cocaine.
    This drug epidemic lies squarely on the shouldres of the previous
generations drug usage. They have wrecked our civilization.
