I heard just a bit of this conversation in my rush this morning. Just a thought... Millions of people in the United States use drugs. Very many of them are not addicted but are users who think it's fun! To those of you who are addicted and to those of you who are not....do you ever think of how you are directly responsible for the mayhem in Mexico, and that your money is filling the coffers of extremist factions all over the world. Does your conscience not bother you? It doesn't? Why ever not?
Pay attention.
