Goverment funded anti-drug program that sends police officers to teach 5th graders how to use common household items to get high. They also show children videos featuring a penguin and a rabbit who kidnap kids and force them to smoke the 'evil' marijuana. Because D.A.R.E. is notorious for using false information and scare tactics, most kids with common sense don't take the program seriously. Basically it's a huge waste of tax dollars and school time.
* 5th Grade Classroom *

D.A.R.E. Officer: Now children, as you know, most drug users are lazy, jobless, homicidal rapists, and since drugs cost alot of money, many druggies will use household items to get high.

Kid: Like what?

D.A.R.E. Officer: Oh, lots of things like white-out, paint thinner, sharpies, keyboard cleaner, whipped cream cans, and gas fumes can be used to get high.

Kid: Whoa, cool!

Drug Abuse Resistance Education
D.A.R.E. worked in the 80's but in the 90's all those little 4th and 5th graders who went to the program are now potheads.
I D.A.R.E. you to keep me off drugs.

a hypocritical class, usually introduced around 6th grade in which a police officer comes to your class and talks about drug use. "marijuana will KILL you!" "crack will KILL you!" at the end of the course you get a nice little (not little, mine was fuckin huge..its still down to my knees and i got it 2 years ago) T-shirt and theres usually a retarded graduation ceremony an who ever has the best essay gives a speech.

in my opnion, it doesnt work. i barely knew anything about drugs till that class and it only made me want to try drugs.
i went through dare, iv been smoking pot since

guy 1: how did you do on your dare essay?
guy 2: not well, i got a D..apparantly it didnt demot drug use..

A lame program where a cop comes in to a classroom to talk to 5th graders and tell them they shouldn't do drugs. The cop lies and exxagerates about everything and says if they ever smoke a cigarette their lungs will turn black and they will get cancer and die.
After a few weeks there is a "graduation" ceremony where kids stand on a stage wearing DARE shirts.
It is dumb.
6th grade girl: Hey, want to shoot some heroin?!
Other 6th grader: No, remember DARE last year?! We will get arrested for life and get AIDS and overdose and Die! Like any drug! Wait, wat is heroin?
6th grade girl: hahah that cop is such a liar, I smoked marijuana and nothing bad happened to me. and i heard heroin is funner!

an acronym for
Drugs Are Really Expensive
or
Drug Abuse Resistance Education
This is the "ghetto's" way to stop drug use.

To challenge. Can be countered with a double-dare or the infamous triple-dog-dare.
I dare you to go two weeks without deodorant.

A program that's supposed to teach children about the dangers of drug abuse. And by the looks of things, the program has already failed miserably to keep kids off drugs.
The schools might as well let the kids shoot and smoke all they want.
