Letter: Just say no to drugs in schools

Drugs are commonly seen at school. Most kids do it at lunch outside school, or even during school in the restrooms. Usually it’s just to get “high” but kids don’t really realize just what they’ve started. A chain reaction starts and suddenly now everyone around the school thinks it’s cool to do drugs just because their friends do it. 

Kids face multiple dilemmas every day, and pressure to do drugs should not be one of them. If I had to give advice to someone who is being pressured to do drugs, just say no. It will be hard to say no to your friends but just do it. It is better to have hard-working loyal friends than people who do not try hard at life.
