Many drug dealers are caught selling narcotics within "drug - free school zones". The size of these zones varies from state to state and most dealers caught within them are unaware of the consequences. The penalties for dealing within the zone is much stiffer; dealers who don't have any interaction with school children at all are still subject to punishment. Furthermore, the zones don't even deter people from dealing in those areas.
