There has been a lot of sad news about the misuse of drugs with the
recent deaths of two teenage girls in Ottawa. Our hearts go out to the
families involved. The theme seems to be that they were teenage
mistakes. This begs the question of why would teenagers even consider
taking drugs?

I know this is a sensitive issue, but with the push to set up
safe-drug-injection sites, and our prime minister being anxious to
fulfill his promise to young Canadians to legalize marijuana, am I
wrong in suggesting that Canada is basically encouraging the use of
drugs and ignoring the problems associated with drug use?

some instances. All these deaths are tragedies.)
