And this offends you? A CHILD with a problem angers you? Would anyone react differently if this happened in Elizabeth, Newark maybe? Maybe you may think "OOh it's expected..." as if it were any different. Even though many will say weed is not addictive, and they are not an ADDICT, they are. Now, I am not going to say that addicts deserve anymore care than the stranger walking past you. They do not need a constant reminder of their mistake, a constant reminder that they are indecent, not a "good person". There is no difference between them and you. You may have not had a medical disease as severe as addiction is, but those who fall farthest rise from the pit and take back their lives. Now, think... Would your opinion of me change at all if I told you I was an addict? If I said I had a problem, a monkey on my back some may say. Would it have mattered to you, my background I mean. Do you now think of me as a thief, liar, killer, degenerate? Just ask yourself "Why". At first you read and believe I am an "Activist" maybe, or maybe of a certain political party. But now you know the truth behind the pen, or keyboard in this matter. Your opinion matters not to me, but you should reconsider people that you do not understand. Until you have stood in my shoes, seen what I have seen, and felt what I have felt, will you only truly understand what I am saying.
If they were your daughter or son would you think the same. It is a disease not a choice.
