Rick Santorum on Drugs
Republican Jr Senator (PA)
For example, I smoked pot when I was in college. Does that mean that I can't talk about drug use? Does that mean that I can't talk about how that's a bad thing? Of course not. You learn from those experiences.
Even during that time, I knew that what I was doing was wrong. But just because I failed, that does not mean that I shouldn't be able to talk about it. It's not hypocrisy, as long as you don't say, 'I thought it was right, and now think it was wrong.' Moments of weakness should not deter people from talking about what they believe is right.
Beyond the "enforcement," however, healthy families are bound by a unique mixture of unconditional love, commitment, and support. A stable marriage is the greatest protection for children and the most powerful energizer for their success.
Children living with their married mother and father, as compared to other children, are less likely to get into trouble or use alcohol and drugs. They do better in school; they get better jobs. No surprise, they also have happier marriages. Teenagers on single-parent households or households with a stepparent are at 1.5 to 2.5 times the risk of using illegal drugs as are teens living with their mother and father.
