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.
e.g. a bunch of bullshit taught by a cop to your kids
"YES!!! I won the D.A.R.E. award and got a free T-shirt."
"Whatever you little fucking narc, give it 5 years and you'll be as doped out as any of us."
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!

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 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.
