I am 15 years old, starting 10th grade at Johns Creek High School in the fall, and I’m learning how to drive.
I’ve seen in the Johns Creek Herald the many drug- and alcohol-related arrests, and it’s worrying knowing that the same roads I’m learning to drive on are being used by people who are under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
I am glad to see the police taking action and that your newspaper is covering these stories.
Covering the stories spreads awareness, which hopefully helps to prevent injuries or death, because parents, teachers and friends are able to think about drugs or alcohol being the cause of someone’s strange behavior.
The parents, teacher or friend might then be able to help the person by getting help for them and stopping their behavior before they become addicted.
