DARE WE SAY IT? Cannabis- no longer on the DARE anti-drug campaign!
The uphill battle for Cannabis began when the U.S signed the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. Ever since then, people from all over the world have been brainwashed to believe that Cannabis is a dangerous Schedule 1 drug, being compared to Heroin, Ecstasy, and LSD.
Going through the American education system, we knew eventually we would have to participate in the D.A.R.E. Program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education). The DARE program is known for using anti-Cannabis propaganda in order to keep America’s youth away from the potential “gate-way” drug. But now, as time passes on and people are becoming more awakened to the true healing potential of Cannabis, DARE has decided to remove Cannabis from their anti-drug campaign, and ultimately, stop spreading falsities about Cannabis. Matt Agorist of the Free Thought Project stated, “Of course, they didn’t make a press release saying so, but they only quietly removed marijuana from their list of gateway drugs.”
Removing Cannabis from their list of gate-way drugs is one of the many first steps needed in order to end the war on anti-Cannabis propaganda. Instead of spreading lies and misconceptions about Cannabis, it is time to start releasing its fascinating potential to help cure the world. This is a victory for Cannabis and another step forward in the fight to end the violent drug war.
Removing Cannabis from their list of gate-way drugs is one of the many first steps needed in order to end the war on anti-Cannabis propaganda.
D.A.R.E. Just Removed Marijuana From Its List Of ‘Gateway Drugs’
We all remember the day D.A.R.E. walkedВ into our classrooms and instilled the fear of hard drugs in our heads. That sh*t was no joke.
A lot has changed since then, and I’m sure as everyone got older, we all started to f*ck around with those substances D.A.R.E. warned us against — in moderation, no doubt.
One thing that hasn’t changed, however, isВ that marijuana hasВ been remained onВ the program’s list of “gateway drugs” since forever.
That is, until now.
The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program has been teaching kids about drug safety for years, and now, it hasВ finally recognized cannabis is more helpful than hurtful — aka, it’s not a gateway drug at all.
If you go to the program’sВ website, you’ll see marijuana is no longer listed as a gateway drug, which, by definition, is,
AВ drug that opens the door to the use of other, harder drugs. Gateway drugs are typically inexpensive and readily available.
Still on the list, however, isВ tobacco and alcohol. Now that marijuana is being legalized for medicinal purposes around the world, it’s time kids start learning the truth.
This is aВ step in the right direction forВ future generations who will beВ livingВ in a marijuana-driven society, and just like anything else they choose to do, it’s all about moderation.
