Downtown Drugs-1

Position One: What’s all of the fuss about?


You are strolling around downtown alone one evening, when you notice 3 people using illegal drugs. Your parents have always told you that doing drugs is not good, especially when they are illegal, but it is their business and not yours, so you walk right by and doing even think twice about your actions.


Position Two: This situation is not right.


You are strolling around downtown alone one evening, when you notice 3 people using illegal drugs. You know that you should step in because this situation is not right, but after all, you are a teenager walking downtown alone and it is dark outside.
