When I began my career, I worked in a Juvenile Hall correctional facility located in northern
California . As the teenage residents would misbehave, rather than send them to their rooms for hours, I requested they write me a one page essay on any subject of my choice. On topics pertaining to drugs, it was touching to see the depth of some of the wards and to read of their experiences from home written on paper. It was astonishing to see the numerous mistakes and the poor writing skills of teenagers who would have otherwise been in high school. It became evident that these teenagers had little knowledge about the facts of illegal drugs. This motivated me to educate myself about all kinds of narcotics so I could share the truth with them. Although the names have been changed for confidentiality purposes, the following are real essays and statements that were written in Juvenile Hall by the teens who lived there. All of the errors are authentic:
