Re: "Bill forcing drug treatment would be a first in Canada," March 22. So 
this is what it has come to. Our parenting in our culture has become so 
poor that we need a law to force our children into treatment. When are we 
going to admit that the world has changed and we have seriously screwed up 
things when discouraging teen drug use? Kids know way too much these days 
for us to be morally pandering to them anymore. The Netherlands has more 
impressive teen use rates than us, and I think Canada is a mature enough 
country to regulate the drug industry and at least try to keep it out of 
the hands of kids.
