Talk to your children...This is in just about every High School in St. Louis. Kids are dying from Black Tar and China White. Schools need parents to talk with their kids.....

30-year's ago, the people who shot up heroine was only your really hardcore, low-life's who went in and out of prison. Not so, today, though. Rich, highly educated, high class kids are getting caught up in this web, along with kids from all social classes, races, and religious affiliations. Not only kids, either, older people are hooked on it, and the rumor that it funds terrorists in the Middle East is FACT. Jefferson County has lost too many kids, as has every county in this state. I know how it destroys whole families, because my child is hooked on it, and the past couple years have been a constant battle. He was an Honor Roll and Honor Society all through school, got scholarships to college, and had a promising future. Now, we hold our breath anytime he is out of our sight, praying he doesn't do it, again. The only way, with law enforcement only having so many resources, to fight this and win is for citizens to be alert and rid yourselves of that idea "I don't want to get involved, I'm scared". Aren't you more scared of burying your child, than of retaliation from people who are purposely killing off our children to gain financial wealth? And why have so many of our kids fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, if we are going to allow these lowlifes to bring heroine into our country, and help the terrorists fund the "next" 9-11? If you think someone is dealing or using the stuff, turn it over to someone in authority that can check into it, and perhaps save a life while doing so. The time to sit back idly and hope and pray things get better is long gone, we must be pro-active, if we want to reclaim our safety and rights.

It was projected nearly a decade ago, that this drug would soon take the place of other more popular drugs. Some people saw this coming, and yet still here we are. It feels like a losing battle.

The opium production in Afghanistan has increase 2000% since Bush assumed control of heroin profits. You can expect Heroin to become the Number 1 cheap drug on the streets of St. Louis and the deathrates to soar into the thousands across St. Louis. Expect It!
