I can see this being accurate, and speaking as a resident of Somerset.

Stop selling and doing drugs around the youth of our community so they don't fail as a result of exposure to criminal lifestyles. No child wants to get Mommy and Daddy in trouble and they will learn life and typically follow in the footsteps of their upbringing.
