From Laura Gray:

Re: Why some kids suffer chronic bullying (Oct. 8): You referred to bullied children tending to use “alcohol and/or drugs”.

I believe what you meant was alcohol and/or other drugs. It may seem a small point, but a) one wants to be accurate, and b) the constantly seen implication that alcohol is not a drug can lead to the assumption that it is less dangerous than the outlawed drugs, and that can and does have severe consequences.
