"Hamburg it is time to move on this issue. The Hamburg Board of Education has a Medical Doctor as President. Dr. Calkins, you must stand up in to protect our children from this epidemic. Too many of our precious Hamburg students and alumni suffer from this terrible addiction. You, Dr. Calkins, must act. You must order the drug dogs into the High School, and you must remove any one who stands in the way. It has been reported that guidance counselors tip off kids that the dogs are coming in, so then can hide their stash. It has been reported that the Village Police allow the school to hide the drug problem, and go to great lengths, including harassing teachers to cover up the drug problem. Any day of the week, any member of the Administration can walk in to the Nurse's Office in HHS, and there is no less than a half dozen kids sleeping off their high. NOTHING IS DONE!!!!!!
Clean up this mess, now. We do not want to wake up again to the obituary page of the Buffalo News to read about another loved Hamburg kid.
Each and every one of our Hamburg children need our love and support, and we must stop this epidemic, now.
BOARD OF EDUCATION ADOPT A DRUG POLICY.
DO NOT WAIT LIKE YOU DID WITH
BULLYING TO ADOPT A POLICY.

“Prescription drug abuse is the nation’s fastest growing drug problem and we here in Western New York are not immune to it,” said William J. Hochul, Jr., United States Attorney for the Western District of New York. “It is an epidemic that is ruining the lives of our young, veterans, the elderly and many others. I believe it is time to address the problem of prescription pill abuse in as comprehensive a manner as possible. What is needed is a multidisciplinary approach from every angle including the medical, education and law enforcement communities.”
