When it comes to education our approach is simple. We advocate for open and honest dialogue on all subjects, including drugs.
The current system has shown us that withholding information and attempting to deceive children doesn't work. Children need to have trusted advisors whom they feel comfortable asking any questions too.
Currently, students and children will not ask adults about these things, and they resort to asking their friends or asking google.
Our research shows that the majority of people say that the worst thing in their drug eduation was the dishonesty and misinformation, which often was represented in fear propaganda.
This same survey shows that the most valuable thing in drug education was having individuals with real-life experience come in and share their stories.
