Hey everyone! I have an unusual request. I am a senior at the University of Pennsylvania and a native Fishtowner. I will be graduating in a few weeks provided that I finish my thesis. Here's where you can help out. For my thesis topic I need to interview Fishtown teenage drug users (teenage being from 13-19 and drug user being anywhere from one time use to addict). I thought I had some people to interview but that didn't work out. Other than standing on a corner and putting myself in danger I can't think of any other way to contact them. So please, if you know anyone who fits the description of who I need to interview, talk to them and ask them if they would be willing to talk to me. I won't be using their actual name when I write my thesis, I promise not to turn them into the police or anything and I'd be willing to compensate them for their time (probably about $10). Basically, I want to ask them about their drug history and the reason they think they started using. If you do know someone please get back to me as soon as possible!!!!
Thanks so much!!!!
Megan

Sorry I haven't gotten back

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you. My home internet connection (curse you Muni WiFi!) was down for three days, and I've been sick on top of that - so not a lot of follow-up or access to the internet connection at the office either.
