Good morning,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Dating is not illegal. However, the sharing of drugs by the adult could be charged with contribution to the delinquency of a minor, and possibly child endangerment---both crimes.
Kindly, remember to rate my service to you. That is how I am credited for assisting you.
I wish you and yours the best in 2015,
Doug
