Our Blind Eye

How do we ignore the number one cause of early death, the number one reason the prison systems are over crowded, the reason so many people die driving, the number one reason for poverty??????......How do we turn a blind eye to what drugs really do to our society?  It's an utter shame that everyone knows at least five or more people who have died from a drug overdose.  It's amazing that this issue isn't at the top of anyone's list of major concerns, but that so many are looking to open the door for more drug use........Sadly, we don't have more funding organizations looking for preventative measures.  Is anyone else concerned?

Cancer/heart disease all increased by smoking and other drug use causing what could have been an avoidable death.
60%-70% of people in prison report some sort of drug issue.  Many of them are drug users/dealers or have committed an offense under the influence of a drug.  Did you know that most of our histories serial killers had some sort of drug issue?
Number one reason of driving accidents is someone being under the influence of alcohol (which is a drug) or other drugs.
Why is their a need to drug test people receiving welfare? Many children in our country who go hungry do so, because of the addiction issues with one or both of their parents.
We can gather a list of personal and public figures who are no longer with us do to drug use.

Yet, we turn a blind eye as if this isn't our reality.......and consider adding marijuana to the list alcohol, cigarettes, and prescription drugs already occupy.

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
