Transcript Jack infringed on the rights of others by deciding to steal a car, not by using drugs. Drugs affected his decision-making abilities. Some people can make good decisions after a couple of drinks, or at least they think they can, but is it possible to make good decision after dropping acid? smoking crack? When we decide to abuse, we decide to give up our ability to make good decisions. We are still responsible for our actions that follow, because we did in full awareness make that first decision to abuse. We have a problem making decisions. The public is weary from accepting the responsibility for the actions of individuals who make poor decisions. Childrens are killed in neighborhood drugs wars, innocent people are killed in drug- related auto accidents, property is stolen, decline in productivity is absorbed by employers, and on and on, the negative effects of drug abuse are paid for by the public. An answer is needed as the debt rises. People see the problems: they need bring out their ideas, and take positive action. In many cities, people have taken the law into their own hands, burning and destroying neighborhood "crack houses". Vigilantes and "fight back" youth groups feel they must protect their "own corner of the world." Many corporations now offer free rehabilitation programs. Hospitals and special clinics have begun advertising to all age groups, promoting their quick, private, and guaranteed drug abuse programs. The solutions and plans are endless but one fact remains clear: the "teenager" must mature into adulthood by learning to make good decisions, not by having the state think for him. Until then, there will be pain, rebellion, and failure, but eventually there will emerge a society of decision-making individuals who are responsbile for their actions — sober or otherwise. ► Darrell Austin Hutto Houston mayor Cathy Whitmire, Chief Lee Brown, Lloyd Gite and T.V. personality Melanie Lawson are seen here attending a city- wide drug rally sponsored by City Councilman Anthony Hall, at the Arena Theatre in the fall of 1988 . . .
