NO family or neighborhood -- affluent or disadvantaged, urban or rural -- is immune to the dangers of drugs. It is naive to think that any of us can "shield" our children from the pressures or stresses of life. Prescription medications are a huge risk and a huge temptation to young people. Every day, more than 2,000 children use a prescription drug to get high for the first time. Illegal drugs...there are many already on the market, and many most of us know nothing about. Ever heard of "K2?" "Spice?" Maybe...maybe not. But, you've heard of marijuana and heroin. Those, and many others, are "out there."
