Just because most Amish people don’t partake in drugs, doesn’t mean all of them avoid it. In 1999, two Amish men were arrested and convicted of conspiracy to deliver class A drugs. Class A drugs are some of the most addicting, including heroin, cocaine, and ecstasy.

The two men ended up buying and selling $100,000 worth of drugs between 1992 and 1998. What’s the most messed up is that these two men were selling drugs mostly to Amish youths. Both of the men ended up being sentenced for their part in the Amish drug ring.
