We can regulate apartment complexes. We can regulate or even ban guns. We can put a stop to violent movies. But, the Fairmont Terrace-type crimes are not going to go away until we do something about drugs.
We have an entire federal agency and countless state and local agencies dedicated to the control of drugs. Yet, they keep being manufactured and they keep being imported. Drug dealers keep getting our children hooked on a lifetime of drug use. These children grow up to be parents whose children are raised in the same culture and the cycle never ends.
Why aren't we being effective with our drug enforcement efforts? Maybe this is where we need to focus our outrage and anger.
