I think my last post also holds a clue to why drugs are so attractive you young people.
We go through a stage in our childhood development where PEOPLE - That is our friends and peers nowadays - are more important to us than any other factor in our lives.
At one time this meant family and tribe but modern living where parents are both working and schools take up most of the child's day -- Family, friends, and tribe become THE foreigners.
Our society could adapt to this, but it is impossible to adapt to that which society refuses to recognize.
Living life in the sandbox.
