Stop it before it happens

“I’m sorry we cannot accept you for this position”. “Why not”. “Well you see you have a long record of drug use”. “Please I really need this job”. “I’m sorry”. MDMA can ruin many of your job opportunities, your image as a person, your health, and your relationship with friends and peers. That is why you must learn not to be pressured into drug use, not to take drugs to be cool or to feel better about yourself, instead surround yourself with people who you know will help steer you away from drugs, if you have a problem talk to a trusted adult i.e. teacher, parent, guidance counsellor etc. There’s always a better way.
