If you have read my articles or stories before then you know where I stand on these kinds of issues but this one really merits a little more exposure because just like the story I did on where the Partnership For A Drug Free America gets its money, this one will probably take some people by surprise as well.
For those of you who may not know D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education and as with many government sponsored programs it is a program long overdue for change or for elimination entirely as a school system on the East Coast of Florida is doing now. I know that some of you may be thinking, "is this guy out of his mind?"

First off, let me start by saying that this is in no way an afront to the members of law enforcement in any way whatsoever. As a matter of fact I have many friends in law enforcement including a few that have been involved in the D.A.R.E. program. This is ALL about facts, not hype, not political propaganda, just merely looking at what other independent studies say about the program.
