Martin 1 Olivia Martin Mr. Sullivan English 1A 06 October 2018 Do Dope, Lose Hope: Go to Rehab, Millennials Have you ever smoked weed or drank alcohol? If your answer is yes, you’re most likely a millennial huh? You probably can’t even remember the definition of a millennial because you’re as high as a kite. Take my word for it, a millennial is a no-life loser that constantly disappoints their family by putting illegal substances into your body (personal attack). Back in my day, nobody smoked weed or drank alcohol, we were perfect and abided by all rules. We never went out and partied, we all had jobs, we all did great in school, and we all obeyed our parents’ rules, unlike you dirty rascals nowadays. I took a survey and asked a whole twenty five people around the ages of 17-20, drug and alcohol related questions (Hasty Generalization). The answers I received through this survey, proved that every single teenager is either a druggie or an alcoholic… or maybe even both. Therefore, our country should try a little harder to show these kids all the negative side effects of the illegal things they’re doing and fight the companies that target their advertisements towards minors. In my survey I asked if these youngsters have smoked weed before, drank alcohol, “vaped”, or tried any hardcore drugs. The results were absolutely nauseating, knowing that a minor, would ever be anywhere even near these illegal substances. Seriously, what are parents doing? Locking themselves in their room, turning their heads the other way and letting their children do whatever the hell they please (loaded question)?

Where’s your class, millennials? Shouldn’t you be working or going to school, or making yourself useful in this world? If you’re experimenting with drugs and alcohol as a teenager, you sure as hell aren’t
