Drugs are destroying the very fabric of our culture. No longer are they found down dark alleys or side streets…they are everywhere, affecting all classes of our society…especially middle America.

You don’t have a very accurate knowledge of history, do you? Drugs were legal up until the 1930s. Cocaine was common in over the counter medicine, as were opiates. Methamphetamine has been used by the military as well as for medical purposes since the early 1900s. All of those three drugs are still available by prescription. They have only been pushed into the dark alleys for a very short segment of history, and even then we’re talking about specific drugs at specific times to suit specific agendas. This is utter nonsense and has no basis whatsoever in fact, it is just more myth based thinking.
