Picture It...

...you're a young boy, 16 or 17 years old, awkward and lacking self-confidence, especially with girls. A hot new girl at school befriends you, shows some interest in you, tells you she's really depressed and asks if you would be able to get her some drugs to help her cope. Although you don't do drugs yourself, you have an idea of the people you could talk to in order to get some. Do you, as that young boy, come through in that situation and get her some pot? I betcha most of them do. And in Falmouth, MA, they also get arrested for dealing drugs to an undercover cop and are cited as a great example of how well the "war on drugs" is going. Yeah, it's a big victory when you're taking on the math club at the local high school.

Wow. I can't believe this. It's coercion! Behaviour like this should be illegal - you're basically convincing these young kids to buy drugs for you by manipulating them based on their low self esteem just so you can make an arrest. How can they really think they've done anything?

COURSE the government is right to do this, just as they should arrest all of these MIT and Caltech students, who must clearly hate America if they're stealing military supplies critical to defending American freedom:
