A study conducted by the National Institutes of Health found that 79 percent of the currency tested bore minute traces of cocaine.
This does not imply that the majority of our currency has been directly handled by drug dealers or users, however. Cocaine is a very fine powder that is easily transferred from one bill to another, and can spread through ATMs and money-counting machines.
It does, however give us pause for thought on just how much cocaine is in this country? Drug trafficking is a huge industry that has only shown signs of growth in the past several years despite many awareness programs and education efforts.
We are naive if we believe this epidemic has passed us by. We need to protect and educate ourselves and our families even more, as the drug culture has spread into our high and middle schools. What do your kids know about drugs and alcohol? Better yet, what do you know?
Ignorance is never an excuse. Take the time to educate yourself! If you are a CR leader, have you approached your ministry or youth leaders regarding lessons or classes you can teach. The scripture tells us to be prepared "in season and out". The drug season is upon us and is not going anywhere for the foreseeable future.
Someone wants to teach your kids... make sure it's you!

If you find yourself on your hands and knees putting sheetrock in a pipe and smoking it … you might be an addict.
If you find that you have problems finishing what you start … you might be an addict.
If you find yourself broke the day after payday … you might be an addict.
If you find yourself walking home barefoot but you still feel you got a good deal … you might be an addict.
If you can remember entering the bar but not leaving … you might be an addict.

It's difficult to know if the changes you're seeing in your child are related to drug use or depression, or are part of the identification crisis that's typical of many adolescents.
You probably fear that if you confront them with your concerns, they'll bolt out of the house and run away, and cut all ties to home. If you say nothing, taking on the "don't ask, don't tell" approach, you take the chance that they'll slip further from the goals and dreams you hold for them and the ones you thought they held for themselves. By being patient and allowing them to move thorough this period, they could snap out of it. Do you want to leave it to chance?
