Drugs down the Drain.
I feel as though young people in society today are completely messing up their lives before they've even started.
Drugs today are such an almost fashionable thing. If you wanna be in with the cool kids you have to have the pockets full of drugs and it's honestly awful! If I could change one thing about our generation it would definitely be our view on drugs, I know it's cliché but drugs ARE bad. They're not this God given gift to make our lives better, they destroy them. And yes, getting high and having fun with your mates is brilliant but you know what else is brilliant? Getting kicked out of school on 420 for selling weed on the premises, going to court 5 months before your GCSE's for being in possession of Cannabis with the intent to sell. Sounds great right?
