I personally think its a joke, my school made us listen to some cop in 5th grade. At the time it convinced me that drugs were bad and then i hit puberty and i said fuck that bullshit. In 5th grade i even did a speech about how DARE was great and my dad was a DARE Officer, things have changed i guess. Some users in my school like to wear DARE shirts as a joke and we have a DARE club and half the kids in it got kicked out because they got caught a party drinking. Whats your opinion on DARE, does it work or not because to me its a joke
we had something like that, it was just called something different. one day after the program i went home and wrote in huge letters all over my journal "I'll never ever ever do drugs... always remind me NEVER!!" but yeah that mentatlity lasted until i started high school
hahhha. Yeah when i was arrested for shoplifintg, he went to take my mugshot, and i made this really gay face like smiling and shit. He yelled at me, and told me my parents would be called soon. & hours later, they came. I asked when he called, and they said like 30 min before they showed up. what a bitch. I don't know why i thought of that. me and 2 buddies were there. good times....
we did a whole damn unit on this shit in my health class. it was funny because they showed us two videos and one said "a marijuana joint is 20 times as bad as a cigarette" and the other said it was 4 or 6 times so I asked the teacher about that and she just thought for a few seconds and told me she would get back to me. She didnt
yeah the elem schools in my district have them, i remember being in class n they had these bears n every1 wanted them so bad n u had to behave really good to get em, load of bullshit now that i look back on it
breaking up with a boyfriend in your case due to his flacid penis and your shrivled up vag is like a old couple breaking up becuase the old woman doesnt want to go to bingo on saturday night and the old man does. its simply nonsense-EastCoastAR5
That shit doesnt work...that and health class, they try to scare you but it doesnt work. I kept clean until junior year of high school, which is a long time, and then started drinking and now I'm like a raging alcoholic.
you are walking home from french club and you take your usual shortcut behind the grocery store. a man and in a trenchcoat with no teeth approaches you with a knife. he forcedly offers you some dope. what would you do in this situation to say no to dope?
We were asked to sign a pledge in DARE that said we would stay drug and alcohol free. I refused to sign it because "I couldn't promise anything". All my middle school teachers hated me after that. But it's ok because our DARE officer got arrested for speed.
Dude, they try and amek it sound as if doing drugs makes the person evil which is BS, my god, I never touched anything other than alchol, but I got no problem with kids doing other stuff as long as they aren't asses
There's no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee's, honor's in the dollar, kid
OH MAN so today I went down to the subway and this MUNI COP WAS LIKE, "LET ME SEE YO TRANSFER" So i showed him then he was like, "YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS" and I was like no and he was like, "YOU ARE AN HOUR LATE, GO BACK UP AND GET A NEW ONE." I was like, shizz foo thats 35 mo cents! But I went up becaues I didn't want him to use his stick and break my legs ===(
DARE actually causes more problems than it solves. by telling kids that ALL drugs are evil and will ruin your life it sets kids up that try pot and realize that it won't ruin their lives that their should be no differance to moving on to harder drugs and such becasue they were taight its all the same. it also give kids more to think about and they get more curious about drugs and wind up trying them. And also from personal expereience I know at least one kid that used the DARE skits about peer pressure as training for how to get kids to buy frugs from him a few years later. I'm very much against DARE and think it should be abolished completly and replaced by straight talk with real answers
poach: To take or appropriate something unfairly or illegally (you know what I'm talking about)
uhhh i thought they cancelled the whole program last year becuase it just promoted drug use more
"What the world doesn't understand," says Craven, still zigzagging through the parking lot, "is that what we don't have enough of is cold, not heat."
Some people talk it, some people live it, some people walk it-some people give it... deal with it.

Yeah I agree. I would say that about half of the kids that went through DARE at my school ended up doing drugs. Most everyone drank in high school also. Maybe someday people will realize that the problems are the same from generation to generation, and then real changes might start to happen.
To love the times we have To like what makes us sad To live when others die To lose and say goodbye To last until our moment comes
me and my friends all had to take dare in 8th grade for getting caught smoking. we erased the letters on our shirts that said DARE to resist drugs and violence to DARE dare IS drugs and violence for our dare graduation. good times...
Yeah one of the DARE police people in another class in 5th grade got arrested for beating his wife and then going on a high speed chase, he was so drunk. He worked at the same station as my dad apparently a bunch of officers knew he was an alcoholic but they never said anything. Im going to wear my DARE t-shirt to school tommorow, i only have 3 days left and its open campus so i might show up stoned, i still havent made up my mind
Back in 5th grade I made a speach in front of the hole school about how we r the next generation and drugs are bad and i will never do them. That lasted all but 3 years. Its a total joke. They never tell u how fun weed is or how horney drunk girls are.
Girls are evil:
Girls= $ times time
Girls= $ squared
Money is the root of evil
Therefore girls are evil.
I guess it's a good idea in theory, but the problem is they have to make up a huge crock of shitty lies to make drinking and smoking pot sound so bad. Then when kids find out that smoking pot doesn't actually make you kill your parents then they lose complete respect for the system and rebel. I think if they were actually honest about the risks of doing drugs it might be more effective. Or it might not, but personally I prefer knowledge over being lied to.
I know enough people (myself included i guess) that have had various degrees of drug problems so I'm not saying they are good. Still, weed is pretty much harmless. Shrooms aren't much worse. Even acid isn't that dangerous. But when people find this out but don't know the facts about other drugs they fuck themselves up. Ecstasy and cocaine aren't tought in DARE to be any riskier than acid, but I'd consider them to be infinitely harder. I know too many people that started doing E but they treated it like pot and fucked themselves up. So yeah thats what I think about drugs.
my DARE officer got in trouble for harassment to a teacher or something.. hitting on a teacher that he worked in the class with... and then he got arrested a few years later for meth. sounds like a good teacher to me... dont DO drugs, make them.
they tell you that people are going to force you to do drugs and give you theirs. that would never happen. unless they are close friends no one is going to be like hey do my shit or im going to slice your throat.
