Acronym for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. Pretty much a big waste of tax money and school hours spent by police officers telling 2-4th graders half truths and flat-out lies about drugs. Along with this, they use scare tactics and educational films about drug addicts (who by default MUST be rapists). It wasted my time, and as a highschooler, I know from experience that none of it really matters.
Me:Not to be one of those pothead dumbasses (I don't care if it's legal or not) but for the record, I would like to say that marijuana doesn't make you stupid, I'm an honor student, and I have a scholarship to a good art school too but I smoke fucking weed ALL THE TIME. Whoever said that they will live a better life than me because they don't get high is a dildo. Drugs have nothing to do with it unless you're a junkie. So have fun with your evangelism and your Purity rings.

Brainwashed Dumbass: OMFGZZZZ. MARIJUANA CAN KILL YOU IT LIEK MAKES UR BRAIN MELT && YOUR LUNGS GET LUNG CANCERRRRRZZZ. U NEED D.A.R.E. BEFORE U DYE OF POT OVERDOOOOOOSE.

Me: Did your mommy tuck you into bed with that story last night or was it on PBS?

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.

A program that actually attempts to brainwash children into not using illegal drugs, a practise which has been taking place for thousands of years and which no amount of prohibition is goingto change.
It's bad enough locking up non-violent drug users, now they brain-wash our children. Prohibition sure helps everyone.
