Partnership for Drug-Free kids I like hugs, not drugs

A survey of 46,000 teens - 8th, 10th, and 12th graders to be exact - showed that 13% of 8th graders, 30% of 10th graders, and 40% of 12th graders, have admitted to using drugs.

Kids who do drugs tend to get more in trouble and show that they don't care as much in school. Would you want your kids doing drugs?

Drugs kill you from the inside-out, if you see from the picture below, this is what happens to someone who does drugs.

Before and After

In my opinion, no one in their right mind should do drugs. With my mom being a heart nurse, she has seen many people with problems due to smoking. Which, leads to me not liking smoking at all.

Everyone should believe me when I say that drugs are harmful, people who say that they aren't, are just the ones who are being effected by it. From what i said above, should be plenty of reasoning to show people how bad drugs are.

Now, in my opinion, there isn't much argument in this. But, if there was, it would go something like this.

Some people might say that drugs are good for you because they might "cure" diseases or help with illness. Well, you got me there, in some hospitals, they use medical marijuana to make them sleepy or woozy. That doesn't automatically mean that drugs are good for you.

Some people might argue about the drugs we use (medicine) that actually make us feel better. They might say, if drugs like weed or crack are bad for you, then why not stuff like Advil or Ibuprofen? Well here is my answer, do the drugs that help us, kill you from the inside out? Well, yes if you have to much, but most people are smart enough not do do that.
