scourgey madness!
« on: July 17, 2005, 08:58:03 PM »
i read this article and a few others about it in the recent past...

granted, it's a big problem but do article writers really have to give the subject the condescending DARE treatment? The first paragraph:
Quote
In Keizer, Ore., the other day, a toddler in diapers and a T-shirt was found walking along a busy road. When police investigated, they found that the 16-month-old boy had been left alone by his parents, who had been sleeping and were subsequently arrested for possession of a controlled substance - methamphetamine. A few weeks earlier and a few miles away in the state capital of Salem, police investigated whether girls at the Waldo Middle School - barely in their teens - had been using meth, possibly exchanging sex for the drug.
