hey guys. i'm just gonna lay it all out on the table, here, and i will be so incredibly un-offended if mods delete this, because as a mod of other communities, i understand that this can be annoying. but i'm doing it in the name of great journalism.

i'm writing a story for a local paper, and i'm interested in investigating whether or not drug use is as rampant as I hear it is among the more affluent local high school kids in Dallas (st marks, hockaday, highland park, etc). I hear it's mostly prescription abuse, but like i said, i don't know much else. i know plano has the major reputation for being a former center for that kind of thing, but i'm more interested in the kind of casual, party-centered drug use. as i didn't go to school here in Dallas proper, I don't have a lot of connections, so I'm fishing around for anybody who can give me a better idea as to whether or not what i'm hearing is BS.

if you/your siblings/whoever might be able to help me out or point me in some provacative (or, if it is BS, non-provacative) directions, please shoot me an email: flytye37 ((((at)))) yahoo dot com.

yeah, drug usage is really all the same at every school, some more exploided than others, but non the less the same, and I think that most drug use is not abuse of perscription drugs, it is very easy to find a dealer, and an average drug user can rationalize his amount of drugs, no matter how serious the adiction is, because unlike most people or movies make it out to be, drug users DO calculate how much money they have to spend and how much they can pull their strings and connections as far as getting drugs go. but like I said, most of the hooplah that is said about arts, such as that we are big potheads cimply comes from the fact that we don't dress normally or act teh same as other schools. but I assure you drug usage is the same at arts as it is at lets say hockaday, the only difference is that with hockaday, no one really bothers to confront drug usage openly for the sake of protecting family pride or image.
