You might not be aware of the program, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, but you would likely recognize its acronym, D.A.R.E. It’s a program that was established in 1983 aimed at educating children k-12 about the dangers of drug use and abuse.
It’s still around today and so is data about its ineffectiveness as a deterrent. If you thought D.A.R.E. was a great program, think again.
Now that you have seen the facts and figures of how ineffective D.A.R.E. has been over the last 30 years, what do you think they should do to improve their message?
Do you think perhaps they would gain credibility among youth if they stopped telling lies about cannabis?
