Glorifying drugs

Posted: Friday, November 29, 2002

For three days I have seen the article written about the drug society in Juneau. My question to you is will there be three days of articles with photos showing what happens when people are arrested for dealing drugs? What happens to their lives (and those of their parents, siblings, spouses, children, friends) when career opportunities are ruined by drugs? How they really look when they have become addicted to any of the drugs? (Believe me they do not look "cool" or "cute.")

Maybe you can show a front page photo of before and after addiction. Can you research how many of our individual tax dollars go to programs designed to help these kids whose photos you are showing on the front page when they become hopelessly addicted to drugs? Do you think you can get some of the addicted, sad, ruined, drug-addicted people to pose for your front page?

I am highly offended that you have glorified the drug culture anywhere - and most especially in Juneau.
