Drug Education

Drugs have been insidiously weaving their way into all aspects of our society since the middle of the last century. They were made popular in the 1960s by the music and mass media culture pushing them in not only an illegal form but also prescription drug use. You probably have known many friends and/or acquaintances that have been affected by drugs — either directly, becoming addicted to them or indirectly, by their children becoming exposed to them from the proliferation of drug use in schools. Or maybe you have experienced it for yourself.

Drug education is critical at all levels of our society starting with children at a grade school level. The most effective way to curb this illicit drug use at such a young age is educating our children of the dangers of it. Which means parents and teachers really need to be educated as they’re going to be the “first responders.” in stopping this epidemic before it starts.
