A Monumental Example of How Drugs Can Affect a Nation's Mind

As I read this account from the BBC this morning, I realized how trapped the world has become by its own making.  Here was a large protest against, of all things -- "the government's war on drugs" -- something that you would think all would welcome.  But not if you are a parent of teenagers getting killed because the military sent in by the government keeps killing the country's youth involved in drugs.  So what is a national leader to do?  It seems one cannot win.

We have failed as a society when we've allowed our freedoms to become our worst prisons; when we have allowed the devaluation of the family and God to be replaced by the pursuit of pleasure and the dollar; and when we step in, we find it is far too late for a solution that doesn't cost even more lives, if a solution can be found at all outside of the very things we discarded in the first place.
