Author's Feelings About Drugs

We believe that drugs are wrong and that you should not even try to go down that path. Drugs have so many bad side effects on you that it is not worth it to do any. You get short term memory loss, you can get cancer, and the way your body works will be all messed up. Drugs are very expensive and you get addicted very quickly. Once you start a drug you will probably go on to a different harder drug. Don't do drugs, and remember drug free is the way to be!

Placement and Timing

We want this to be an article in a teen magazine or in a magazine like People. Where teenagers or young adults can see it when they go through the magazine and take a few minutes to read through it. We want this to be put behind or in front of a big story about a celebrate or an internet sensation getting caught with drugs so that they can see the consequences that drugs have on even famous people. We are hoping that teenagers will get the message and make better decisions that doesn't lead them down the path towards drugs.
