Few parents ever imagine that their child will grow up to do drugs, but drug usage
among kids and teens is a stark reality. Drugs are everywhere — from big cities
to small towns — and are used by people of all ages, races, and economic means.
Knowing what drugs are available, what they can do, and how they can affect someone
is the first step in raising drug-free kids. The second step — and probably
most important — is to talk
to your child early and often about the dangers of drugs.
