Joseph. The cocaine wasn't found in the school just in a house near the school. I agree with everyone on here pretty much. Drugs are every where especially since we live by the water. The boats bring in the drugs like cocaine in the first place. I grew up on LBI and we had FBI drug raids around town like every month. As to our children well being a mother of three all I can do is educate and talk to them about it, hope and pray and stay on top of who they hang with and what they are doing. This is part of life and parents should be caring a little more then some parents do.
