    Good story, sad to say but most cities are just the same. Drugs are going to be the downfall of this once great country. You used to be able to escape this plague by moving to a rural area, but no more, drugs are just as bad out in the country as in the city. I shouldn't complain, if it wasn't for drugs and alcohol I wouldn't have had a job.
