Hearing all these stories about these kids who have absolutely zero physical or mental problems getting addicted to drugs makes me mad. I am mad at them (I know it is their body and their choice, but I still get kinda peeved) because they have what so many of us want (they are in every way healthy) and they are like… oh ok cocaine. YOLO!
All these people act like 'oh these poor lambs couldn’t have possibly…"
No honey. They knew. They read about it every day. They have all been to at least one of these anti drug school rallies. The just made a stupid decision that I have no sympathy for.
What about the mentally ill who self medicate? We never hear about that. I have never seen in a newspaper or on tv about how little Joey or whatever had crippling depression and the way he was trying to cope with it using illegal drugs. If Joey had gotten the medical care that he needed this probably would have never happened.
I realize this might sound cruel, but where I live there was a rash of drunk driving deaths. It wasn’t did someone die this weekend, it was who. All their upper middle class mamas and dadas bought all these kids (mostly boys died) they big expensive trucks, let them have money for alcohol, and had a huge ‘boys will be boys’ problem. Then they got all upset when jr plowed into a tree.
Zero sympathy. People are dying every day in my town because of drugs and the violence that goes with it. Everyone knows our cops are ineffective and dirty. Our town’s upper class is almost exclusively, if not exclusively white. I’m more worried about these kids that run around the grocery store parking lot while their mothers don’t even watch them. The ones who grow up and their brother is a drug dealer. What about them? No one cares. The town homeless shelter is full and there are still people living on the streets. Lots of them didn’t even have a chance.
