I recall being involved with the initial onset of the DARE program in our school district in the early 80's as our LIONS group hosted a poster contest for middle school students. I am surprised that research claims no statistical evidence of it's efficacy. My take on this, is that this program represents a piece of the pie to help curb drug abuse. If it saves one life, it's efficacious! This is not to say that something else can't be added though.

Well, the thought for these administrators might then be...
Might we find or develop an enjoyable and popular prevention initiative, which uses law enforcement officers, and is also effective?

I think the Idea of DARE is fantastic but the core of addiction is not a problem of awareness of what drugs may or may do If it was The DARE program would cure the problem.
I know our communities want to do something
After reading the article I thought what about a BIBLE program and see the out come of drug use.

We have taken God the Bible out of schools and replaced it with other ideas that are not near as old or as effective as Prayer can be.

We have to abide by laws and rules that has made BIBLE and prayer against the Law...
what about illegal drugs??
