Media, laws glamorize drug use
BY ALLISON MARGOLIN, Guest Columnist

I’m sitting in Glendale court, waiting for the judge to call out my client’s name, relatively bored. To pass the time, I am reading the June issue of Allure magazine. As I flip through the mag, I pass an article purporting to be an expose on drug use among celebrities. At first I don’t read it. As much as drug use is a part of my practice, and though it has been a source of interest for me as long as I can remember, sometimes it gets too much.

i agree. the use of drugs in one's home is of no concern to the state, and it should mind its own business what one does in his or her own home. but excluding the state's paternalism, drugs are no joke. they are the loan shark of the emotions and body. they will definitely provide you with pleasure and escape. but be ready when the drug says it's payback time. it will not be cute. the fun comes with great debt and interest.
