Whilst I am a big fan of your site, I was totally shocked at your article about drugs. I am aware that alcohol should really be a higher class drug than it is, but you can’t compare to the longterm damage marijuana has on people’s brains.
I have been involved with teenagers for over 15 years and have seen many people suffer the long-lasting affects of substance misuse. Now, with your article on your site, the idea for your news is to provide the heimishe kehillah with a safe environment to see various news items and updates on a wide variety of topics, but to put this piece of information in, especially at this time of year, with Purim around the corner, is inexcusable. There are going to be dozens of kids /teenagers /adults drinking, smoking, etc., and if anyone gets hooked on marijuana, it will be on your head.
Please, for the sake of Klal Yisrael, who are going through such a difficult time, with hundreds of families from all spectrums of the community suffering from children not going in the true derech haTorah, please do something about the article. You don’t want one person to do anything wrong because of the article.
In the merit of being mezake the rabim, may you be zoche to all the brachos in the Torah.

P.S. Please advise that you will listen to my plea on behalf of Am Yisroel.
