About 17% of American high school students drink, smoke or use drugs during the school day, a new survey by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University says.
Remember when you were in high school and they would hand out these questionnaires and say that it is going to remain anonymous, but you are always worried that it won’t? Obvious that’s what happened. There’s no way that only 17% of kids are getting high during school hours, at least at the high school I went to.
I went to a public school and attendance policies were pretty lax. Put simply, white kids could basically do whatever they wanted. Walk the halls without a hall pass, come in late, hang out in the parking lot, etc. Well, that’s what you get when you’re an honors student taking a bunch of AP classes. And my high school didn’t have home room like other schools, we just went right to first period, so each teacher was supposed to take attendance for that period, but not all of them did. If you had a free period, you could leave school grounds. You could also leave for lunch. Needless to say at least 40% of students were getting blazed during school hours.
Roll a quick J, ping-pong that shit, head down to Dunkin Donuts for an iced coffee, chill out there for a while till next period. Then head to philosophy, because white kids could take philosophy in my high school. There were of course a few kids who would come to school all coked up, but they were fucked up or they weren’t white. Those kids all ended up going to the secondary high school for troubled kids, AKA fucking morons, druggies, or losers who only ended up with a GED.
Private schools are much worse. I went to a private school for 9th grade. A lot of kids were pieces of shit from the Bronx who got a tuition discount because they were po’ or they got an athletic scholarship disguised as financial aid. Couple kids from Queens and even from Brooklyn too. That made up about 40% of the student body. Another 40% were rich kids driving beamers. So 80% of the school was either selling drugs or had lots of money to buy drugs, and they were all on drugs during the school day. I remember seeing kids blowing lines in the cafeteria, kids smoking cigs and packing lips and spitting on the floor in the cafeteria. In 9th fucking grade. One kid I know had a real old-ass nun for religion class. He sat all the way in the back of the class. He pissed on the floor DURING class, but the nun was so old she didn’t notice. Private schools are fucked. I’d never send my kid to a Westchester private high school unless there weren’t any kids from the Bronx on financial aid there. Those kids are the trouble makers.
I know a lot of guys now who went to private high schools, and for the most part the public school kids are in better shape. Rich kids from private schools, especially from the Westchester area or eastern Long Island, are fucking DRUGGIES. Always poppin mollies and shit. Bars are really the worst. These kids pop Xanex all goddamn day, taking mad painkillers and shit smoking ungodly amounts of weed, never doing homework, always majoring in some bullshit college major like Media Studies. What the fuck is Media Studies? You learn how to use Twitter?
No way only 17% of kids are getting blazed. Maybe people in the midwest are fucking squares. If you surveyed only the northeast region, and probably Florida too, you’d get a much higher number. Kids from Florida are bad too, always driving drunk and shit…
