This program was started by an ousted chief of police in Los Angeles named Darryl Gates. Funny how it still runs today to ensure the children receive the proper programming.

Read the article, all he really said about weed was" Difficulty concentrating. Trouble problem-solving. Loss of coordination and motor skills." Which are pretty much true, he's not really demonizing weed. The article is mostly about opiate addiction. Honestly this doesn't feel inappropriate, he wasn't providing factually inaccurate information. This is about 15 miles from me and we really desperately need every voice we can get working on the opiate problem.

I don't think 11 year old's should smoke weed either...


My main problem with this fucking cop is this though:

Chelsea raised her hand. “Like if you use too much pills, you can overdose?”

“Yes,” Thaxter said.

Um, no Chelsea, you dumb bitch, he's talking about withdrawl

Honestly, couldn't a Police Officer come and chat up the kids with little cost outside of his and the local governments time? I mean there's like a serious prescription drug heroin problem going ( so i'm told) on in many different parts of the country..i think if you want to gt kids to think critically and make good choices that should be part of the curriculum anyway..we had a health period 1 quarter in the year every year that touched on many subjects, i understand the need to want to address the many issues facing children, but 20 minutes once a year is not a solution, whatever resources were spent would be better off redirected towards treatment and education

I think it's just a natural revulsion to the DARE program, which i thought was long gone..at it's height the amount of money spent on the program was pretty significant and, as it turned out... ineffective ... real education and public awareness are much better served through more holistic and broad based methods, such as proven public health initiatives designed to get addicts the help they need...
DARE seems to be just looking for a reason to exist

I don't disagree but I also think most of what this cop said was honest.

in my experience, most officers who give public presentations are honest and caring people..i'm not impugning anyones motivations, but DARE as a program is needless when it can be done for free as part of a community wide approach

I vaguely remember DARE


In fact, up until a week ago I still had the poster I made as part of what they had us do in school.





And it left me with a feeling of holy shit what a waste of time primary school was I remember the feeling of being bored and trapped and overwhelming restlessness.




No wonder I started doing drugs.

Children shouldn't smoke pot. At least the cop said it gives you a feeling of euphoria. I don't think the cop was overly critical of marijuana given the audience. No need for DARE though.

Thumbs up Thanx for all the response.....

My attitude on this article is simple. Law enforcement does not belong in any faction of the medical society. They need real pharmacists and other medical personnel teaching children about the use of substances. We went through this in the early nineties when D.A.R.E. was in full bloom. We had bumper stickers that read "D.A.R.E. to turn your parents in," They were fashioned identically to the ones passed out in the gubment schools and some of ours were even known to cover up the gubment ones on bumpers of cars. When you put law enforcement in front of adolescent children, they believe the one on taxpayer's salary more than in their own parents. I heard too many stories of ones who were turned in by their own offspring through the school.

I went through a class called V.A.N.T. (V.D., Alcohol, Narcotics, and Tobacco). It was a one semester class when I was a sophomore in high school. The other semester was the best course I took my entire tenure in school, which was drivers education.

Glad I stirred up a storm.....
