D.A.R.E.

D.A.R.E is a very important concept. If you had D.A.R.E you would learn about drugs and how to resist them and you you probably won't do them in the future. On the other hand, if you didn’t have D.A.R.E you wouldn’t learn about drugs and how to resist them and you probably will do drugs in the future. Either way, it’s a 50/50% chance you might do drugs depending on what you are like.

Just Say "No"

Has anyone ever asked you if you want any kind of drug before? If you answered “No” to that question...then good. If someone asked you if you want any kind of drug and you said yes at a young age it could be a problem because your brain cells aren’t fully formed and you will be miserable for the rest of your life. If someone asks you if you want some kind of drug just say “No!” and walk away.
