      Unfortunately, Pam, people who are on drugs are addicted and it’s difficult for them to get off. I wouldn’t assume drugs were the cause. It could be a number of reasons. Perhaps they have a brain chemical imbalance, maybe drunk, maybe a few teenagers who were extremely bored. Who knows.

      How would you not let them off so easy?
