JMAR July 2, 2014 at 05:32 pm
Just about everyone I went to school with used Marijuana, and many to this day. They don't useRead More heroin because they chose not to try it in the first place. Although a small percentage went on to use heroin and destroy their lives it was for a multitude of different reasons, including some mentioned here. Addiction starts with a conscious choice, marijuana makes an easy scape goat but the reality is that millions upon millions of Americans use MJ responsibly and never turn to harder drugs. I've always known where to draw the line, but for some it is easier than others. It is about education and information, and teaching children to set limits early on. Even then, sometimes nothing can be done. But as soon as we start to focus on passing the blame to some other innocuous substance we miss the point. Heroin and marijuana are both illegal and have been since everyone here has been born. It does nothing to ban a substance as evidenced by our drug war. The only way is to take drugs out of the hands of criminals. The word gateway drug was invented for marijuana, even though alcohol is used just as widely and many times leads to direct addiction to alcohol. There is no drug that has a specific pharmacology that causes users to try others. This is a conscience choice and we need to teach our children that drugs are DIFFERENT and while they may like to smoke a joint or drink alcohol, it does not mean that the drugs "one tier up" are in the same class. If we liken cannabis to heroin and teach our children that, they try weed and say well hey, this isnt so bad, nothing like I was told, so the other stuff must be OK too. It is our refusal to teach children the differences between drugs and their potential for addiction and harm - ALONG WITH many other factors that are completely beyond anyone's control except the person who makes the decision to use that cause this. This story is tragic and my heart goes out to the family, I am sure your son was a magical person, who was stripped of his shine by a ruthless drug, my only attempt here is to shed light on the MJ reference, not to detract from the meaning or importance of this mother's message.

Sadly our country doesn't prioritize the care of the most vulnerable. The only bright spot is thatRead More we have evolved as a society (somewhat) . Years ago, kids were institutionalized without therapies or any other intervention, leaving them never capable to actualize their potential.....It infuriates me that the state can rationalize the least restrictive environment for individuals who have never experienced an ounce of adult independence - My parents were told to institutionalize my brother in the 60's - they refused and with support and intense intervention he is doing well at 52.... our parents raised us to take care of each other and be each other's safety net in life - we (6 kids) promised our parents we would take care of him in his later years and never let him become a statistic...after reading this heart-breaking story it saddens me that we will have these kinds of tragedies , yet nothing will change.....
Jane Doe June 17, 2014 at 09:18 am
Closing Developmental Centers and moving the residents to poorly supervised group homes is wrong onRead More ALL levels. There aren't enough group homes to care for all these people and what happens to the others? They end up on the streets to fend for themselves. We have an autism epidemic in this country. All of these autistic children will one day be autistic adults. What then? What happens when their aging parents can no longer care for them? If there is a problem with Developmental Centers, then IMPROVE them. Make them state-of-the-art living facilities, staffed with professional caregivers and medical personnel. I don't understand what the problem is. Nursing homes aren't being closed and they provide care for those who need assisted living .... why is it wrong to provide "assisted living" to the mentally disabled? And I've seen some of these group homes. They can be a nightmare. I've visited Bancroft NeuroHealth in south Jersey. THEY should be the model for the care and residential living for the disabled. But transferring helpless people from the comfort of the the homes and care that they have known is heartless and stupid. Putting them into these half-arsed group homes is cruel. The only reason it's being implemented is because these poor souls can't speak up for themselves.
