Just today I read about a couple who had their children removed from their home because it was a drug den. The little boy (aged six) described his parents giving him and his younger siblings “feel good medicine” with a needle. They had pock marks, and their hair tested positive for last heroin use. :mad::mad:

Poor babies. :frowning:

:eek:

It’s one thing to trash oneself, but your children? :frowning:

ETA: Its sad that a story like this got buried under all the election garbage. I can’t wait until world news is actual world news again. :shrug:
