Drug addiction is a problem that spans race, sex, income and color. No family or community is immune. While drugs are taking a toll in urban areas, they are also wrecking havoc in rural communities. Where a city may have hundreds of thousands of people, rural areas may have communities of just a few hundred people. When someone in a large city dies, a very small percentage of the people are affected. When someone in a rural community dies, a large percentage of the community is affected.
Every life is precious, and everyone deserves a life free from addiction, but life does not always go that way. Some makes a decision to try a drug, and from that point forward that soul is lost to addiction.
The simple solution is to never do drugs. The not so simple solution is not convince people never to try drugs in the first place. Just because illegal drugs are easily accessible does not mean someone has to try them.
