Just Say No
In 1982 Nancy Reagan started a campaign to stop children from getting invalid with drugs.
The campaign was called (just say no) seems a little simple for such a complex problem,
but it actually had good results across the country. If you think about it, its much simpler
to stop children from doing drugs, then it is after they become addicted to drugs. Being
young they tend to listen to there pears, and there pears, have no clue.
Some kids will be talked into trying drugs for the first time, and from that day be hooked.
Then some will try drugs and never get hooked, they will be able to walk away, but here's
the point, know one knows who will become addicted and who won't, it's a crap shoot with
the rest of your life.
Its a small two letter word that has a powerful meaning, NO, (just say no) Maybe the just say
no campaign should be reactivated. I know its an old program, and some might say its time
has passed, but look where we are today, New Hampshire, small state, small population, with
a huge drug problem. We need places and treatment centers for people who are addicted, we
need to make it cost effective because treatment is expensive. So much better not to start
because life is short and you have better things to do, then rehab.
