as someone who attends school with the people being depicted in this cartoon, i can't help but give a sort of saddened chuckle. good work- sort of edgy, but still good.

Thank you. I guess it occurred to you, as well as me, that if no one bought illegal drugs there wouldn't be a demand and we wouldn't have a drug problem.

More education, involvement?

Personally, I am offended by this "cartoon". I live in the burbs (where Borgman lived and attended high school) Some suburbanites may partake in drug buying and use, but they are not a majority. How about the black activist that was shot and killed last week due to a bad drug deal? Mixed message to his community, Huh? Where is your next cartoon?

Maybe you should be more offended by your friends and peers who are driving downtown or wherever to buy drugs. If it wasn't a prevelant problem, it wouldn't warrent being commented on. Instead of feigning insult, get involved with stopping the problem.

To stop the "drug problem," eliminate 90% of murders and most other violent crime--legalize the drugs. Take away the black market.

Learn from the may European countries who hav done the same and seen the same results.

I grew up in Cincinnati's 'burbs and this cartoon speaks truth.

I've been there, I've seen it, and I've lived it. Thank God I had a strong enough upbringing to say no thanks and strive for the higher things, as opposed to the things that make you high. Some of my peers were not so fortunate and the influential figures in their lives made every excuse in the book for them. Further, they bailed them out when they should have talked to them straight. Why? "It can't happen to us."

Talk to your kids. It makes all the difference.

Rock on Borgman.

12:36 couldn't say it better. its time to ditch the neo clowns and their just say no message and accept that the war on drugs is just as failed as the war in iraq.

LEGALIZE DRUGS!!!!?????!!!! Isn't there something else to do with life?!!? Somebody is Cincinnati is paying $7 million for cocaine. Where do these people live? Downtown, suburbs, who cares. DON'T BUY AND USE ILLEGAL DRUGS!!!!

Borgman left out the black male drug dealers in his cartoon. Why couldn't he have had six or seven blacks in the cartoon....each dressed in hooded sweat shirt, baggy pants, etc. Each armed to the hilt.

THe coke that cost $7 Million on the black market would cost less than 1% of that in the "legal market", i.e., your pharmacy where cocaine is avaialable by prescription now.

No one is advocating not controlling it, just legalizing it to get it off the streets and restore order to our cities.

I cannot tell if some of these posts are humorous sarcasm, or just ignorant nonsense. The punctuation and capitalization lead me to belibe it is the former, but I can't help but worry.
