The end result of their use emphasizes how vital the education of drug abuse is today to the youth, parents and general public* Drug abuse is the student urged to try a sugar cube con- taming USD. Drug abuse is the 15-year-old who accepts adare to sniff glue. Drug abuse is the pill gobbler who reachestoo often into her medicine cabinet for a sedative. Drug abuse is the heroin addict whose habit is so expensive that he may steal to support it. Pushing drugs is a moneymaking racket and it is the kid on the street who suffers. Many parents feel that their children wouldn't touch drugs because they know better but many of those same children still want to try. It is difficult to convince the parent that his child "who can do no wrong" can get involved. There are 35 known hard narcotic addicts in Frederick City but the young people of Frederick County who are hung-up on marijuana are very few percentage wise. Cocaine is now present in Frederick and there is an alarming amount of heroin coming into this area from the District of Columbia and Ft. Mrs. Paul Mossburg was a guest of the club.
