International Day against Drug Abuse

I was just reading one of my favorite blogs and found out that the 26th of June is the UN International Day against Drug Abuse.

I believe it is important for all of us to work to combat drugs. That's why I support the Scientology anti-drug campaign.

Scientology churches do great work to let kids know the truth about drugs and do it in a way that is fun for the kids. The program is called the Drug Free Marshals (Drug-Free Ambassadors in Australia and New Zealand). Kids get to get to be sworn in as Marshals and sign a pledge to stay of drugs and help their friends do so too.

They bring this program to fairs and other public gatherings.

The kids have fun swearing in adults too. They've sworn in policement and mayors and other officials.

It's a great way for everyone to get to the kids with a positive message. By making a committment they have to at least think twice when other kids promote drugs to them. And that might just be enough to get them to say no.
