D.A.R.E. Dropping Marijuana From Kids' Ant-Drug Curriculum
Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 3rd 2012 by THCFinder
As of this month, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, or D.A.R.E., the nation's largest anti-drug non-profit group, will no longer indoctrinate public school elementary kids against the evils of marijuana.
This is pretty major news, stoners, since D.A.R.E. has been preaching against the funky weed since the just-say-no days of the 1980s, and the use of marijuana by kids is the only victory that the group claims it's been able to deliver during that time.
That self-congratulatory claim is itself dubious, however, since several studies and government audits over the years have argued that D.A.R.E. has actually been responsible for rising rates of pot smoking among adolescents, who might not have known anything about ganja if it wasn't for being exposed to it by D.A.R.E. Indeed, this controversy is why D.A.R.E.'s funding in recent years has plummeted from more than $10 million per year to just third that amount, and why, hoping to reverse that trend, the group recently unveiled a new and hip anti-drug campaign called "Keeping It Real."
