Removing the stigma of drug addiction is definitely a step in the wrong direction. Drug addict should be SHUNNED.

This is such a wonderful effort on the part of those planning the event that I would just like the Pleasanton Weekly to announce all events earlier as 'looking at the week ahead - upcoming events.' They will hopefully thus be better attended!
