    • Hi Emmanuel!
      I found the topic you wrote about to be very interesting. Although research has claimed that there are some benefits to drugs, however, the negative effects outweigh the “positives”. I feel that some people who use drugs as a coping mechanism and a way to temporarily alleviate stress can get very much addicted to it.
      It is unfortunate that many teens start using drugs due to pressure from their friends. I completely agree your stance on one type of prevention program by having someone speak to a group of people letting them know their experience with drugs. Educating young students and bringing more awareness to the effects of drugs may reduce the amount of teens carelessly doing it.
      Under “Why are these drugs bad for teens” I really like how you wrote about the financial impact drugs can have on one’s life. Many people may not understand how expensive drugs are until you realize that money could be spent on better things. Moreover, under the same section it would also be helpful to touch on long-term effects on one’s health from using drugs.
      Awesome job!

    • I really enjoyed your opening paragraph, you present both perspectives of the issue basically setting the audience up for your paper. I have to agree with you, when you say that society cannot stop youth from using drugs. We can only provide services for the community that can prevent the percentage of drug users from increasing. In the community where I grew up, Los Angeles, weed was used among teens on the daily basis. not because they had any sort of medical issues, but for the purpose to fit in and be socially accepted.

      Thank You for sharing this post.
