I grew up with Angela Halliday (from a Christian elementary school through public high school) I myself have struggled with addiction and know know utterly consumed a person can become with the drug. The State's Attorney's can say, " if we scare the shit out of these "junkies" then maybe they'll stop." That is a futile approach to an epidemic that should be given more of a preventative approach. You are not going to scare a heroin addict out of 'dope sickness'. When a person is in such a state they think of little else, but to quench that hunger inside themselves that rips every bit of them. I am from the St. Louis Metro-East area and take this horrible social depravity personally. I have lost friends and family to this, and it is but by the grace of God that I am in the position I am in today. I recall elementary school; listening to our D.A.R.E. officer making references to drugs with some non-threatening stuffed animal and would think,' what is this guy talking about? It almost seems kind of fun to 'experiment' with these things that s/he says not too." I'm telling you... PREVENT drug use SERIOUSLY!!! Stop wasting every taxpayer's money with litigation.. YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A HABITUAL DRUG USER CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW HOW TO STOP THIS EPIDEMIC... GET A FUCKING CLUE!!!
