wow - i really did not think people would be angry about me trying to stop drug abuse in my school. and even if im not the one doing it, quite frankly, it still is my business. why? these people are on the roads, drunk/high, putting other people at risk.
and just because something has been an issue for a long time doesnt mean its too late to start trying to fix it. To quote history (sorry, this example is way overused, but it works here), African-Americans had been discriminated against for centuries before Martin Luther King, but that didn't stop him from trying to change other peoples minds.
