STUDENTS PASS ON POT FOR PILLS ON TODAY'S CAMPUSES



Experts: Pills becoming the new marijuana on campus

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- The prescription drugs allegedly found in Al Gore III's possession this week are favorites among young people, according to drug abuse experts, who say prescription drugs may soon overtake street drugs in popularity.

Some young people perceive that prescription drugs are safer than street drugs, experts say.

"I wouldn't be surprised if right now at this point in time, there are more kids abusing prescription drugs than abusing marijuana," said Joseph A. Califano Jr., chairman and president of CASA, the National Center on Alcohol and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.

Gore was arrested on charges of possessing -- in addition to marijuana -- Vicodin, Xanax, Valium and Adderall.

This article really points out why pot must be legalized. And soon! Whatever you believe, keep in mind that while hundreds die every year from prescription medications, to date, not a single person has overdosed from smoking cannabis.

I definitely have seen an increase in the amount of prescription pill 'abuse' at my high school. I'm in Arizona, in fact Scottsdale.

Pill 'abuse' is incredibly more accepted by students than people think.

In fact, there was a recent flood of Soma prescription pills into the school's drug flow, which could be attributed to the nearby Mexican border. Then a girl overdosed and everyone started dropping names. TV news vans were always outside the nearby schools, who had similar problems.

Also, if I was regularly and effectively drug-tested as a prerequisite at my current high school, I would have to move into another district, or find some way of getting around the test, be it finding more rapidly metabolizing substances or synthetic urine. There is one high school in my area, and so many kids attending that they had to use some of the classrooms from the nearby elementary school.

It's creepy, if you ask me. Nobody here is a native.
