    Dear Bianca,

    I am Jose Martinez I found your comment very intriguing because I agree with you how you said that my writing was good. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is that you said that I said that drug dealers use you like paws in a chess game. I found this sentence very over welling because I see what you are trying to says…Read More

    • Dear Jose,
      I agree with you that there are many reasons on why people do drugs. Many times, people do drugs because they’re peer pressured or they did it for the experience. Since kids want to fit in, they’re peer pressured into doing drugs because they want to be “cool”. However, they don’t realize the consequences of doing drugs, such as being addicted. I also agree that drug dealers would tell you things you want to hear in order for you buy the drugs from them. They only care money, not the kids’ safety or well-being. Thank you for sharing your post! I enjoyed reading it!

    • Jose,

      I found your post to be interesting and I think this is an important topic to discuss in regards to teen drug use. What I found particularly interesting is when you quoted your source Drug Free World that drug dealers think of their buyers as “pawns in a chess game.” That was shocking to me but it really opened up my eyes to the motivation behind selling drugs. I agree with you that the main motive for teens to do drugs is peer pressure. I also think that free will, like you mentioned, can also be a motive for teens to try drugs. I think that a lot of teens want to experiment taking drugs, whether their friends are doing them or they just think it might be fun to try. Thank you for your post and I look forward to seeing what you write in the future.

One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is that you said that I said that drug dealers use you like paws in a chess game. I found this sentence very over welling because I see what you are trying to says because drug dealers are playing you like a game. Anyways Thank you for taking time out of your day to comment on my article. I look forward to seeing you and your awesome comments.
