What happened at Tunstall makes us (the students) who had nothing to do with what happened look really bad! This was only a couple of people at the school.It did not involve all of us,but everyone makes it sound like it was all of us. These studaentd that did have something to do with it gave Tunstall Middle a bad name and made all of us look bad!

Some may be junkies on this site, but many are actually suffering and in need of medication and may not have insurance. Xanax is not as safe as marijuana, Xanax has been involved in hundreds of OD's and marijuana has yet had one. Get your facts straight.

Wow ! I hope thekids post is a boring joke. That's some dangerous misinformation to be spreading. I love my Xanax and medical marijuana, but damn xanax can be extremely dangerous in many different ways.

I've had a doctor tell me first hand that he's had long term patients suicide because they could not deal with the withdrawals anymore. Benzo withdrawal can actually last years in heavy long term heavy users.

If Kid is a middle schooled himself he's just uninformed, I wouldnt have a clue myself at that age..hell I didn't know the consequences of Xanax at 26 when I started taking them. I would have posted something similar at that age. Weed = at worst, habit forming - not addictive and you don't go through extreme withdrawals if you stop smoking. Xanax = addictive, and If taking daily then stopping cold turkey, could put you in the hospital and cause seizures. Teens should be taught this, I would assume by now they would be incorporating prescription drugs into their anti drug programs.

I think it is all just sad. There are a lot of people that don't know about the dangers of these kinds of drugs and OD on them, killing themselves. It happens at all kinds of schools across the nation. These kids can still have a bright future, especially if they are put into a private school ( http://www.plumfieldacademy.org ), where I feel the teachers are a little better trained for situations like these.
