The recent bout of marijuana busts in Stanislaus County have raised questions and remarks about the presence of drugs in schools in the community.
As a student at Johansen High School, I know that drugs are a prevalent in our community as a whole and unfortunately they are also present in high schools. However, the suggestion that only five students in a school of about 1,800 don't smoke pot ("Question of the Week," Buzzz, Sept. 13) is at best naive and at worst ignorant.
Making conclusions not backed by facts only leads to marginalizing good work done to address the issue. Students may have access to drugs, but not all of them actually use them. People from all walks of life use drugs. They are a cross- section of socioeconomic groups, ethnic groups, age groups and religions.
