The war on drugs today is a no-win situation. Most of todays students in school receive their first chance at drugs in 5th grade. That's up twenty percent the national average than last year. So what can we do to stop this? We can't just stop sending our kids to school. We have to educate them at an early age. We can step up as individuals and put a stop to drugs. We can move up in the world if we as the parents and teachers give them the support they need to go higher places instead of trying to punish them for disobedience. For example, smoking cigarettes is considered cool at school. In the last decade our percentage has risen ten percent every year for kids ten through fifteen.
