I have noticed that a rather lot of kids at my highschool smoke pot, take prescription pills, or go and drink all night. I am highly opposed to drugs(not like asprin or tylenol) because my mom used to be addicted to prescription pills. Thankfully, she quit about two years ago so thats all good.
But what are your guys opinions on this? Do you feel the same or do you think that this is OK?

Drugs, Alcohol, and Our Highschools
My High School didn't supply drugs or alcohol.
It was a bring-your-own kind of arrangement.

Most of the kids at my school just drink and smoke pot. Which wouldn't be too bad if they stayed at home and did it and didn't go out and drive afterward. Just last week 4 of our starting football players were in a bad wreck because they were drunk and driving around. They didn't get punished though (just happened to be a playoff week).

Whether you are against them yourself or not should only matter in your personal decision to take them. People should not be able to tell me what I can and cannot put in my body. Even if it is dangerous, it's my body and noone else but me has to deal with it.

I don't think it's all that bad. Of course you always have the group of druggies, but for the most part, any recreational users keep it away from school.

It's not drugs or alcohol that's the problem, it's the idiots that abuse them and make stupid decisions before, during and after using them that's the problem. If you want to go out and drink till you pass out, then go ahead, just make sure you have a designated driver and don't endanger the lives of others.

hasn't it always been like that? man, i hear stories from my mom and the stuff that's going on now isn't very different.

kids are just take stronger stuff these days. its kinda sad to see people passing out in class or staring at the boards trying to catch the words bouncing around. i don't have a problem with the weed, but coming to class on bars is pretty messed up.

tons of kids have been getting caught with drugs in and out of school. usually school security will let it slide. they avoid getting the cops involved at any cost and if you meet the right cop he'll just take the stuff off your hands and let you walk away with a warning.

Doesn't really bother me, never has. I smoke weed some times, and plenty of people at my school do other drugs. I know some people will drop some acid or eat some shrooms before going to art or music class, other than that nothing out of the normal. You hear of people doing coke and stuff like that, but I've yet to see anyone do it. Drinking on the other hand, is getting out of control. Personally, I don't like alcohol. I'll have some every now and then with my family, but otherwise I don't like the taste and it just doesn't make me feel too good.

Yes, I do think it's becoming a bit out of control. But on the same issue, things with drugs and alcohol and school aren't far off from what it was 30 years ago.

for 99% of kids, its not a problem. But at every party, campfire, whatever it happens to be, there's always one asshole who has one too many beers, or takes one too many bong rips, then goes over the edge and ruins their friend's night.

nah lol. the opiate high is the best high.


what i find highly ironic about the situation is that out of the whole lot mentioned, alcohol is probably the hardest to obtain for minors.

That's surprisingly true.
Despite that I never have tried any form of drugs (obviously excluding things like normal dosages of Tylenol and such), back in high school I knew of at least 5 people that I could go to that would probably sell me whatever, and many more who could point me to someone.

No one at my school ever really came to class high though, excluding some of the modified people. Still, from a survey back in grade 9, something like 30% of the regular math class tried weed at one point, and about 48% of the advanced math class. By grade 12, I'd say that 48% was probably up to 2/3 of the class judging by who was in my class. :P

Drugs and alcohol are completely common in high school, and they usually (not always) aren't that big of a deal.

Luckily, my school only has drinkers and pot smokers, and the few people that do hallucinogens/mdma are responsible about it. I don't think there are even any hard drug users here either.

People have been saying "Kids these days..." for ten thousand years. I've never had any mind-altering substances (save for one amazing week when I had pain pills following my wisdom teeth removal), and I certainly don't approve of them, but I think this generation will be okay.

My school did an anonymous survey and around 90% of the students smoked weed more than once. Less than 3% even tried anything harder than weed. This just means we should legalize.

i don't think drugs and alcohol are that big of a problem at my school. a lot of kids drink everynow and then, some more than others. some smoke pot, and an even smaller number do a few other drugs. there was one kid who used to smoke a joint before he came to school a couple times a week, but they set him up and he got expelled last week.
