    children are the first casualty in the war on drugs. If these drugs were treated like prescription medications, i think kids would know better. Instead, if a child discovers pot, adults lie about it and confuse them.

    and of course, smuggling would be too expensive to do.

    btw this happened weeks ago and i'm sure there was already a thread on it.

    Not uncommon where I live, our town gets at least 8 death threats from kids at schools every month. Strangely enough, 60% of those threats come from kids at the elementary school. :confused: I would expect the high school.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they already did. In the 1960s I remember Monroe High School (San Fernando Valley CA) having drive by shootings from rival gangs then. I was even on the field when I heard shots once. Supposedly one of the "Midnighters" didn't like one of the "Playboys" seeing his girl. And this among 15-17 years olds. I guess as time goes on the gun totters get younger.

    Actually, apropos to this thread, the government thinks it can even tax illegal items-- Recreational illicit substances require Drug Tax Stamps in many places, so you wind up paying taxes on contraban. Fortunately, almost no one is stupid enough to pay. Unfortunately, it's just another thing they can charge you with, if you're caught with drugs.
