How did red ribbon week start?

Red Ribbon Week began as a way to prevent drugs with Kiki Camarena.He was sent as an agent to Mexico to investigating a drug cartel, including Mexico army, police, and government officials. He died while he was out in the field, so people started Camarena clubs, to talk to people about drugs, and to prevent the use of drugs. The club wore red ribbons, to define the honor of the loss of there beloved friend.

Why do i choose to be drug free?

I choose to be drug fee, because if I don’t stay drug free, I will not be able to do all of the wonderful sports I’m playing. If you do drugs, it messes up your throat, and you begin to talk funny, so I don’t want to walk around talking all funny, because I don’t want to get made fun of. Also, if you do drugs, all of the tobacco will get in your immune system, and stomach, and kill you. So that is why I choose to be drug free, so I can live a happy and healthy life. 

Things to do instead of drugs

Instead of doing real nicotine drugs, do the fake plastic ones, because the fake ones don’t hurt you, but the real ones that have nicotine, can KILL YOU!!!!! So, when you go to the gas station, instead of picking up some snuff, pick up some beef jerky instead, because they have some beef jerky that is in a snuff container, but its not nicotine or tobacco, its regular old beef jerky.
