It then goes on to discuss the negative impact of drug addiction on American culture (such as violence, drug addicted babies and the learning disabilities they develop).

From the Paper:

"The war on drugs continues to hold the line with neither side able to declare victory. Young teens are experimenting with drugs despite programs of prevention such as DARE and Just Say No. Drug addiction crosses all boundaries including economic, racial, and lifestyle. It knows no limits and it affects every aspect of life from the ability to work, to the little children being raised by dealers. The drug addiction problem in this nation continues regardless of the efforts to stop its progress. It has a negative affect on American culture on every level."
