Moral reasons not to do drugs

Blood on the streets of Ciudad Juarez
Not doing drugs is a moral imperative


Doing illegal drugs kills people.  Maybe not you.  Maybe not anyone you know personally.  But the drug wars that go on in Afghanistan and Mexico and elsewhere to control the illegal drug trades are deadly.  Just look at what life is like in Ciudad Juarez!  If you are doing illegal drugs, you are responsible for what is happening there.  Don’t want those deaths on your conscious?  Then DON”T DO ILLEGAL DRUGS!  And by the way – these wars are spilling over into America.  So get your moral head on straight.  Doing illegal drugs is not a harmless crime.
