Let's See More Letters Like This!

Here's an idea: Why don't you send a letter like this to your local paper? Good job, Ned! (From the Desert Sun, in California.)

War on drugs: Be different, choose life
It's exciting. It's rebellious. It kills. Drug use by America's youth is on the rise and the consequences of using drugs seems to escape young users. Here's a list of the life-damaging consequences of the drugs popular with youth today.
Ecstasy: Confusion, depression, anxiety, sleeplessness, shakes, paranoia, elevated blood pressure.
Marijuana: Respiratory infections, impaired memory, panic attacks, chronic bronchitis, frequent chest colds.
Oxycontin: Respiratory depression that can lead to death, restlessness, muscle and bone pain, diarrhea, vomiting.
Methamphetamine: Psychotic behavior, brain damage, paranoia, aggression and mood disturbances.
Cocaine: Severe chest pains, lung trauma, bleeding. Mixing with alcohol increases risk of sudden death.
Heroin: Collapsed veins, infection of the heart lining and valves, abscesses, liver disease, pulmonary complications and pneumonia.
Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB): Unconsciousness, seizures, respiratory depression, coma.
Wake up, young Americans. Drug use leads to self-destructive addiction that will alter and perhaps end your life. Your life is at stake. Don't follow the crowd to oblivion. Choose a drug-free future for yourself.
