S. LETHBRIDGE, ALBEriTA Ail( about Photogroy Ih'j Ions 'hut chonjtl with the light. Third of four articles Drug scene problems often created through misunderstandings Three-quarters of the senior high students and one-third of Catholic Central lligli School arc using drugs, The Herald lias ton told. Four students from tho school, v.'liu wish lo remain anonymous for their prelec- tion, met will] Herald report- ers lo discuss Hie drug situa- tion in their school, and the need for a drug crisis centre in Lethbridgc. Pseudonyms will be used in this article: .Sargc, Midget, Did: and .lane. "Most kids u'ho do drugs do so because they like the re- actions Ibcy get from said Dick. "Tho kJds usually use mari- juana and hashish, in prefer- ence lo chemicals like LSD and speed, because Ihey know (he harder drugs can be dan- added Sargc. Sonic older persons hare also turned onto done, the slu- dcnts said. They suggested that some parents lave Iricd drags in order to !md out what exper- iences their children are hav- ing. The group felt, however, that many parents in IjCth- bridge would be reluclant to admit their children are lak- ing drugs, much less that Ihey had Iricd them themselves. "Many parents don't want to Ijelieve Lheir kids do drugs, Dick said. "I Ihink they're worried about their own reputations." "f don't Ihink there is any need to lyj ashamed of laking drugs older people go out and said Sarge. "When you're stoned on drugs, no one gels sick and you have no hangover. Tlierc isn'l Hie mess afterwards lhat you have when someone has vomited drinking too much." The students believe lhat many parents are complelely unaware lhat their children arc using drugs. Midget said he had been on drugs for two years before his parents found out, and Dick said il had lakcn his parents about 2'2 years. They said drugs are usually plentiful and easy lo get in Lethbridge: "Lethbridgo has more dope per capita than anywhere else in Sargc claimed. Most drugs come lo Lclh- bridge from the- U.S1. Iht-y Mid, although supplies come from Vancouver. And they're often cheaper in Lclhbridgo than in Calgary, the students They denied thai there are "pushers" in ihe popular im- hge: there is no man dressed in black skulking about the .school gi'ounrl.-; leading stu- dents astray by selling them drugs. "No one forces anybody lo do Dick said. "They start because they want lo, and tlrcv get turned on by their friends." Jane said young peisons-of- len start using drugs out of curiosity, mostly because they are continually warned against them. "If parents say, 'don't do too otfcii, their kids will probably try dn'jjs just to see v.hal the drugs will do to them." she said "They keep hearing their friends say what great reactions they get." The students said most youths do not believe there is any danger in using mari- juana or ha.shish, because they see nothing happening lo harm their friends who they know arc constant users. And even Lho students who arc not allowed lo go out at night by themselves have ac- cess to drugs during school hours, so home restrictions are useless. But the result of home re- slriclions and disbelief in ''scare propaganda" from parents is that "many kids are freaking out at Jane said. The older students, more experienced in drug use, find the drugs have litllc effect on their .school work most of the time, the students said. They said drugs tended io give them courage and confidence, they didn't otherwise have in social situations, just as al- cohol does. They said a crisis centre for drug problems is definiicly in LcthbrWge. Nol all youths have the ma- turity or knowledge lo use drugs safely they .said, and there is also the danger at times of adulterated drugs or an accidental overdose. The students interviewed said Ihey, and other users, would not likely give up drugs. But Ihey said a drug erLsis centre is; necessary be- cause of Die times trouble docs develop. "You'd need a central lo- cation such as Central School to make it work, Dick said. "You'd also have to bo able io trust '.he peo- ple who'd be running it and be able to be friends with them." The crisis centre directors would have to drug users or former users, he added, so they could understand what the crisis was like and what the treatment for it would be.
