Good point. Back in the Fifties, when I was but a child, drugs were being used by only a few. Drug dealers did not live long back then. If the police did not put them away, the community would (with a few being put away in their graves).

Today the landscape is different. We have dealers on every street corner, in every school, in every factory. Drugs are so ubiquitous that they can only exist if the police, the politicians, the judges, the preacher, and the teachers, turn a blind eye to the problem. The police are being bought off, the judges are being bought off, and the politicians are being bought off by the drug dealers. The teachers are using just as many drugs as their students and parents are using more than their children. Drugs are here to stay until the people as a whole rise up and take action.

Some parents have done just that. Drugs are no longer sold in front of their homes. Now if only the rest of the world would take similiar action.

Thanks for your comment, G :-))

A friend sent this letter to me and I wanted to share it on this blog.

We certainly do live in different times where, in my opinion, money/power generated by the illegal drug trade is nothing compared to the billions generated by pharmaceutical companies. Now ---> there's the real power to corrupt politicians, teachers, medical professionals, parents, etc. on a higher level --- which-- by the way, seems to be totally acceptable in this country.   

Nowadays you're home watching Dancing With The Stars or some other "family oriented" tv show and the first commercial you see is about Restless Leg Syndrome or some other newly contrived condition that can easily be treated by a visit to your doctor >>> who gives you a prescription for a pill recommended to him by none other than >>> a sales rep from that same pharmaceutical company that sponsored the commercial you saw on TV in the first place.

The PCs who now have the medical industry in their pockets, use the $$$ generated to lobby politicians, etc to pass laws that will allow them to do whatever that want/need to do to generate lots & lots of $$$.

I could go on and on but end my comment here:-)) Again, G - thank you for your comment.   Have a great weekend!!!
