Law and Order: Tween Narc Unit

Thank god for D.A.R.E. This anti-drug took me as a child, totally unaware of drugs, and taught me what crank and poppers were. Well D.A.R.E and my days on the 1980s disco circuit.

Now despite the fact that the U.S. government declared D.A.R.E. to be ineffective SEVEN YEARS AGO, school districts across the nation still use the program. While this might sound akin to using blood letting and other outdated medical quakery at the school nurse’s office,  a recent news story though suggests D.A.R.E. might have turned a corner. Ya see, a North Carolina 5th grader, after a lesson on the dangers of ~spooky voice~ marijuana, brought his parent’s stash into school and gave it to the D.A.R.E. officer. His narcing got his parents arrested and the child removed from his house by Child Services.

Well shit now this kid has an empty house but is too lame to throw a kegger!

If this story doesn’t prove D.A.R.E. is moronic, I don’t know what will. If the program makes kids so scared of pot (of all drugs) that they get their parents arrested, maybe it’s time to turn down the rhetoric a bit, eh? Because unless I missed something having both your parents go to jail is a pretty good way to ensure a child will have a drug problem. Although this story suggests it might be an awesome way to turn our nation‘s Justin Bieber fans into drug sniffing dogs...
