6th grade has been in D.A.R.E for the past few weeks and we learned lots of things to not do when someone mentions drugs. First, D.A.R.E stands for Drugs, Abuse, Resistance and Education. In the D.A.R.E decision making model, D.A.R.E stands for Define, Assess, Respond, and Evaluate. After you have learned what D.A.R.E stands for you understand the program a lot more!
Okay so lets say someone comes up to you and says “hey would you like a cigarette”? Think about what you’ve learned and say “NO”. If some ever asks you if you want a cigarette the best way to reject that is NO. You should always stay away or not go on any kind of drug product. You may think Cigarettes have only a few things in them, well that’s wrong. Cigarettes contain tobacco and tobacco contains poison and many other bad things. Okay so here is what smoking or tobacco products do or contain. Smoking can cause breathing problems, heart disease and it can cause bad lung cancer also upper respiratory problems.
Tobacco can affect body development because you body is still changing and growing and will can be a BIG affect if tobacco is in use during body development. Cigarettes also contain a substance called Nicotine- which is a substance that makes cigarettes very addictive. It’s also Illegal to sell tobacco products to people under the age of 18. It’s illegal to advertise drug products on TV. Never go on drugs because more than 400,000 people die each year because of drugs so JUST SAY NO.
There is another kind of drug product that changes peoples lives, Alcohol! Alcohol can slow down the body & Brain. Too much Alcohol can slow down the body or can lead to a coma or death. Careful because Alcohol can damage every organ in the body.
Smoking marijuana causes breathing problems. Marijuana have more colds and upper respiratory problems. Marijuana affects your brain and body. Marijuana can be addictive. There is more tar in marijuana smoke than tobacco smoke. Marijuana users have an increased risk of cancer. Marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more of some cancer causing chemical than tobacco smoke. Marijuana is illegal in the United States.
I Jared B. pledge to NEVER go on any kind of bad drug product, I will make very wise decisions and make one very very good choice. Tobacco, alcohol, other drugs are not good so I pledge to never ever go on them!
