DARE to Legalize!

  1. I remember sitting in the gym listening to those DARE officers and I laughed pretty loud at the wrong time. They homed in on me like a drone. I was literally dragged to the center of the floor and made a specticle of. I only got in one good comment when they asked me their first question. They asked me if I thought drugs were a joke. I answered that the guys enforcing drug laws were 100 times more dangerous than pot would ever be. I was 17. The principle and a cop took me to the office after berating me in front of the whole school and suspended me for a week. I was told I could not graduate with the class and I may have to repeat the grade (12th) because the suspension prevented me from taking required testing. I agreed to enter the Delayed Entry Program for the Navy (DEP) in order to graduate on time.

    I rest my case. I had not smoked pot ever and was punished for my opinion only. During that week I smoked weed for the first time. I figured if I was going to be punished I would at least do the crime, so to speak. I joined the Navy, did my time and as soon as I was discharged decided to smoke again. I have enjoyed it on occassion since, without incident. I am happy healthy financially well off married with kids and have a long and suscessful life ahead of me AS LONG AS I dont encounter any more of those DARE officers.

    Cannabis is not the problem. The laws and their enforcers are the problem. DARE to tell them to kiss off.

  2. I bought one. I hope I don’t get in trouble like I did with that telescope I bought.

  3. I was in a pilot Dare class. It was 1st time I was exposed to drugs. The cop came to class and told us about the horrors and passed around viles and bags f “bad” drugs. I remember holding a bag of the shittiest bag of Mexican weed and think “useful” but then I got a hold of the mushrooms and I knew it was special and I did not want to give it back. After a little bit of the confrontation I yielded it back after the cop unbuttoned his gun and laid his on it like a shabby quick draw artist. That’s right in dare class with 13 year old’s the cop it necessary to ready his gun. I hope this insanity is all most over.

  5. IF YOU WANT AMERICA TO BE SAFE AND SMOOTH SAILING YOU WOULD SEE TO IT THAT THIS LAW IS BROKEN AND PASSED ASAP !!!!!!!

  6. The DARE police officer at my grade school didn’t just lie to us to try to terrify us, he made us all sign a contract and tried to convince us that it was binding. What a joke!

  7. I’ve always felt that it’s wrong to make our kids into pawns in the culture war. Hey! leave them kids alone…

  8. I’ve always felt that I’ts wrong to play childern as pawns in the drug/culture war.

  9. Wow I never had dare past elementary school. Guess my public school was so shitty they new better than to waste there time, since most kids were either smoking or dealing pot as well as every other thing u could think of. I grew up in an inner City so I can’t relate to other dare programes. I know mine was a total waste of time and money.

  10. Yeah Roger, when you see how society doesn’t even try to take of your people (i.e. WTF is an inner city anyway? A storage area for people ‘we’ don’t care about?) it gives a different kind of clarity most people mistake for “always seeing the glass half empty”, when its really more like, “They are taking our future from us. Is this ever going to change?”

  11. It is amazing that they still want to criminalize us tokers. I started in 1972 and went on to college and worked with people with developmental disabilities for 32 years my pot smokin never hurt a soul. I have written to my Governor my state Rep. Here in Ohio for years. And finally a state Rep. Hagan has introduced legislation to legalize medical marijuana here in the Great State. Of Ohio!! About damn time!

  12. I agree Dave. Dare would work in an environment where drugs and crime’s aren’t rampant. I fortunately was strong enough ( thanks to a strong family) to rise above it all. I have graduated high school, associates degree, and a proud Freemason. My inner city was Chicago, then Kalamazoo, mi.
