This story caught my eye. They are sending undercover cops to high schools to entrap kids willing to raid their home medicine chests. I'll quote the gist but read the whole thing.
"Students sold the drugs, many of which may have been taken from home medicine cabinets, for a pittance, Police Chief Rick Scarbrough said.
"'They ( students ) are not as street-savvy and business-savvy as our usual street dealers are. They almost give the drugs away.'"
Really? Why would that happen? Is that what a ruthless pusher would do?
Sounds to me like some kids are looking for friendship, social acceptance and approval. Because police can pretend to be students looking for drugs convincingly enough, some students pretend to be drug dealers as well as they can. It would be a silly game, if the consequences for students weren't so real.
