At school, it was red ribbon week. Even though it was promoting to not use drugs they didn’t really educate us about drugs. I think most people that do it, are not educated about the horrible things that can happen to you. Most teenage kids do it without even thinking about a consequence. Others won’t stop doing it until something bad happens to them and even then they’d still do it not thinking that it might be a problem. I really believe that alcohol and marijuana are gateway drugs. It is the easiest thing you can start with and now it is so easy for anyone to get access to it. I think that teenagers start to do it for fun, for the high, or just experimenting. It seems all fun and games but it can actually have a long term effect on your life. Drugs can make your life go down the drain in a little matter of time. It is really not worth it.

You have to make the right decision no matter what. You have to know what is right and what is wrong. I feel like most people get into drugs by the influence of other people. Everyone is different and theres always a story behind to why someone does it. You can’t fix other people if they don’t want to be fixed. The person has to be willing to stop. What you can control is what you do so think about things before you do it.
