Youth and Drugs

Why is Drug Prevention Awareness important for youth?

There are several reasons youth start to use drugs. Some believe drugs will help them think better, be more popular, or become better in their athletics. Others may just be curious and figure one try won’t hurt. Many young people begin to use drugs because they’re depressed and think that the drugs will help them escape their problems. Some of the drugs used are cigarettes (nicotine), marijuana, and inhalants.
