The Scourge of Illicit Drugs
President Gordon B. Hinckley


 
Some have even used as an alibi the fact that drugs are not mentioned in the Word of Wisdom. What a miserable excuse! There is likewise no mention of the hazards of diving into an empty swimming pool or of jumping from an overpass onto the freeway. But who doubts the deadly consequences of such? Common sense would dictate against such behavior.

(President Gordon B. Hinckley, CR, Oct. 1989, p. 65)
