Conditions of Use
D.A.R.E is a program that teaches children to take the right choices. While I was in the program I learned how tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and cigarettes affect your body.
Smoking tobacco causes breathing problems for you. Over 400,000 people have died each year from smoking tobacco. Smoking also causes shortness of breath and dizziness. Chewing tobacco causes dehydration. If you play sports it’s going to be hard to play.
I also learned about marijuana. There’s more tar in marijuana smoke than tobacco. Marijuana users have an increased risk of cancer. Marijuana is illegal in the United States.
I also learned about alcohol and how it’s bad for you. Alcohol slows down your brain and body. Teen bodies are still growing, therefore alcohol affects them more severely than adults. Some people buy alcohol for minors with their id.
The D.A.R.E program also taught us about peer pressure and how to make our own decisions and not follow others.
As you can see the program is good for us. They show us how to say no to tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol.
Now that I now how tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol affects your body, I will take wise decisions and say no to tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol.
