Drug

Resistance
Education

An extremely useful and beneficial program that teaches the intelligent kids, or the ones who want to learn and not want to be street trash. About the dangers of illegal drugs (including Alcohol). It helps kids gain the knowlage from scientific research to be responsible and healthy human beings. It may also be the reason why I and the growing number of Abstainers and non-abusers is far greater than the abusers (look at the statistics people! only 23% of people who use drugs are abusers). By the way pot is sooo dangerous to you it ain't even funny.
I am 18 years old graduate in the top 10% of my class, I have NEVER done any type of harmful drug. I consider myself a D.A.R.E. role-model. Thank you D.A.R.E.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education. An anti-drug program with a seriously flawed reputation, at times giving out misleading , inaccurate, or outright false information. Critics often point to the lack of any evidence that DARE actually affects drug use. Drug users (and kids in general) often ridicule the program.
I saw the DARE officer smoking in the parking lot.

Stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. Similar to the Junior Anti-Sex League in George Orwell's 1984, it is a federally funded organization designed to distribute misinformation about the dangers of scheduled substances. Unfortunately, the false information is easily absorbed by children's impressionable minds, so that they grow up with a notion that illegal drugs are all bad, which, in the long run, diminishes their ability to question government motive and action, and increases blind faith in the most obnoxious of government propaganda.
I was kicked out of D.A.R.E. when I was 13 because I told the glass that after several millenia of use, marijuana has never caused a single direct fatality.

A program, often taught by police, which tries to brainwash young and impressionable children into believing slanted information and sometimes out-right lies about drugs.
1. D.A.R.E. taught me that marijuana will make you kill people.
2. D.A.R.E. to think for yourself..

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!
