Maybe she is just trying to say how addictive and horrific heroin is. Maybe she is just trying to make more aware of this problem. Maybe she has seen this all to often and does not know where to turn.

If you knew anything about tech at the time, you'd know that phone tech was severely deficient in the 2000's.

That's why you would buy outside of USA. There were watch phones, and touch screens in the early 2000s. If you follow Asia's technology, you won't find such a lag from the 90's to 2007.

By all accounts we are moving in the right direction.

Cigarette smoking levels have been cut by about 50% over the last 25 years and continue to decrease year over year.

Source: http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/tables/trends/cig_smoking/



And if that statistic is true in the Jewish communities, then lets use the same education on drugs.

But, I grew up in religious schools and only got one speech in 7th grade about the harmful effects of smoking.

And we can generalize and say that certain sects of jews are handling this issue better than others.

Cigarettes  are alot different then drugs
Substance is substance.

lol. By saying that, you discount your argument that weed isn't as bad as heroin.

Lets ask this question...why do you smoke pot? Besides that it makes you feel good. There are 100 different ways to make yourself feel good, why pot?
what a question, maybe POTUS should ask the U.S. Nation this question maybe all drugs will vanish...
And lets say he wants to do all those 100 things, including drugs. Now what?

accepted, now what will you do that your son/daughter will hold back from starting to smoke? (referring to reg tobacco as well?)
''people have a right'' are you serious? so let it happen?? why not educate how harmful all the above are?
Cigarettes have been around for years. How are we doing with educating people about that?

Face facts, that education doesn't trump what people see in the world.

Peer pressure is extremely harmful and no amount of yelling will help.

IMO, It's more about the age than the drug.

There are substances that are legal to use. That's a fact.
People (the general public) have a right to do whatever they want to themselves, whether it helps or harms them (cigarettes, drugs, cutting, suicide).

As a Jew, one has an obligation to live, to not harm themselves.
When a jew gets a religious depression they turn to rebelling, whether public (change of friends and religious affiliation) or private (substances and religious observance).

If the jewish community come out against drugs full force they will only further the gap (case in point: Internet).

Rather let's accept the facts that substances exist and are accessible to all, but focus only having these questions with 20+ yr olds (which substances doesn't have great harm) rather than with 15 yr olds (where substances have a great harm).

I was told about that policy from multiple agents and supervisors there for the past 2 years (and none would let me out with larger). Could be they weren't always so strict on enforcing it though.
