What is new about people taking drugs: Nothing! Our society is a drug-oriented society. We have been both using drugs and, at times, abusing them for years. Furthermore, drug abuse has been written about for hundreds of years. What is alarming today, however, is the number of youth who are joining the drug scene from our junior high, high schools and colleges throughout the country. Fortunately, many of these will be involved only temporarily. Others will develop physical and psychological problems as a consequence of their involvement. Our responsibility is not limited to the small percentage that have short or long-term consequences, but to all youth in our community and country. Hopefully we can answer some of the pressing questions facing parents, teachers and professionals.
