I am in ninth grader who grew up with drugs all around me. That's why i picked this topic to write to the next president.
The average amount of jail time awarded in drug possession case in the United States is between 30 and 40 months, in many other states you can be punished by life time in jail or even death. Why do people sell drugs when they know the consequences? Some people just want the money and can careless about the consequences , but others are forced to hustle, because no one will give them a job and sometimes they do not even have papers and can only make it through life by selling drugs. I have a friend who lives with his mother grew up with no father . He has 2 brothers living in the house with him. His mother works in a hotel and that job does not let her bring much money in the house. He is 14, has no papers so he can’t get a job anywhere. So he hustles in order to buy his own stuff and not have to ask his mom for money he buys his 2 brothers stuff too and he helps his mom out by slipping money in her purse behind her back, but then i also have friends who sell drugs and do not care about the consequences just trying to make a quick buck.

Got some that will sedate you
