    I don't know how I feel about this, but I don't think I'll be heart broken if they do it. I'm not sure if it will deter drug dealing either. We need to reach out as much as possible to at risk kids to get them jobs when they're old enough.

    There are plenty of adults who have careers, families, and "the American dream" who use drugs.

    There is no half way. After his first exposure, a man is either a sheep hunter or he isn’t. He either falls under the spell of sheep hunting and sheep country or he won’t be caught dead on another sheep mountain.

    I think one could possibly mock a lot of commercials. I used to mock the "I want to be a ballerina when I grow up," followed by "Nobody says I want to be a junky when I grow up." I'd say something stupid like "I want to be a dumbass when I grow up."

    I'm talking about trying to help out perspective drug dealers. Help them know there is an alternative by mentoring to them when they are younger.

    I have never known a drug dealer who did so out of desperation or a lack of education or skills. I have known a drug dealer who chose to quit college because the business was so lucrative. He recently was exonerated of murder and is working in a pizza parlor in Ft Lauderdale.
