Return to D.A.R.E.

The D.A.R.E. program should be returned to public schools. At a time when 70,000 Americans are dying each year from drug overdose, an emphasis on clean, healthy living is important. Following several controversial studies that claimed D.A.R.E. was ineffective, it has been largely dropped from U.S. school curriculums. In just the last 10 years, drug overdose death rates have skyrocketed, even as states have increasingly legalized drugs like Marijuana (a gateway drug that leads to other, more dangerous drug use).[1] The new D.A.R.E. program appears more effective, and it is time to return to education that counteracts drug use.[2]
