How Drug Dealers Target Our Kids

Without drug users, drug dealers would go out of business. Because they need there to be a demand for the illegal drugs they produce and traffic, dealers are continually looking to attract more "customers" - to get more people "hooked on their junk."

"And among drug dealers there are no qualms about target-marketing kids," says COMBAT Assistant Director of Operations Vince Ortega, a 30-year veteran of the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department. "They're trying to create the next generation of addicts - their new customers - by creating 'products' made to appeal specifically to children."
