Better drug awareness needed

I was walking down the halls of my school when I overheard a group of girls and guys talking about what they did on the weekend. I was shocked. I was and am still shocked because of the drugs and bad influences these young people are getting into.I’m really amazed at how far people my age will go just to seem “that much cooler” or that much “more tough” in school by doing a dangerous drug.I don’t think we’re getting enough public education on drugs and their effects or even how to stand against peer pressure either. I’m surprised that kids, especially kids who are graduating, aren’t more mature and stable with their choices at all. I just wish kids would have more sensibility to their actions and choices in life because in the long run, it will affect them.Krista Desormeaux
