Hey all you fine people, here's something I just found out:
Last week was red ribbon week here, my step daughter is in the middle school and apparently the local narcotics team came in to give a demonstration
about drug use. Run of the mill stuff I suppose. I'm all for teaching youth about the perils of drug abuse and addiction, however, I find this tidbit
The officers showed pictures of various drug paraphernalia and drugs. Students were then allegedly told how to use these items. And they also showed
several ways that drugs can be hidden.
After the demonstration, the teacher, (I'm sure at the recommendation of the pd) handed out slips of paper and asked students to write down whether or
not they knew someone who drank too much or used drugs.
This whole situation made my step daughter uncomfortable and I'm just wondering if anyone here has a similar experience and if I'm in the wrong for
being pissed off about the whole situation.
Shouldn't the police do a little leg work instead of asking children to be narcs? I know I'll hear "if you're not doing anything wrong . . ."
rhetoric, but the situation seems a bit over the top.
Eta, we did not to get a permission slip for this demonstration.
