Tackle ice from top

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

RE: “Fo­cus on kids in ice fight”, ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, June 10).

Per­haps ar­rest­ing the drug deal­ers selling the stuff and giv­ing them much harsher penal­ties would be a start. The prob­lem is some kids are weak and they see the world as stress­ful.

Then they start on mar­i­juana then go to stronger stuff. Some kids come from good fam­i­lies.

There’s al­ways that one child that goes astray, how­ever. Be­com­ing ad­dicted to these drugs is so harm­ful to them­selves and their loved ones.

Def­i­nitely (in­clud­ing) some edu- cation in schools and aw­ful pic­tures of what it does to users and how it af­fects their fam­i­lies phys­i­cally and men­tally might get through to some kids.

Yes life is tough and stress­ful at times for us all but it doesn’t mean we have to turn to drugs. It only makes peo­ple go into a very black dark hole that one can’t get out off. Only in death when ad­dic­tion takes over. Very sad. Steps need to be taken for our youth.
