Losing the war on drugs

April 7, 2014 

Glad to hear there is an all-out effort to curb the use of heroin in counties in Illinois. I don't think the heroin addict started out on heroin. Wouldn't you think he or she got their first jolt from marijuana?

With the acceptance of marijuana being used recreationally in this country, it appears we are simply chasing our tails.
