About Drugs

My class is doing a health topic and right now we are studying about drugs. We learned that not all drugs are bad for you but you should NEVER take a drug from a kid, teen or untrusted parent! There are all sorts of drugs. There are pills, liquid and inhalants (those with poisonous fumes). We also learned that some drugs are called OTC drugs or over-the-counter. Oh yeah, I forget to tell you about medicines. Medicines are a type of drug but they are not as strong as prescription drugs. Drugs are not always bad for you they sometimes help you heal when you are sick BUT if you don’t follow the instructions correctly you might find your self getting sick or hurt.

Red Ribbon Week

Our school is doing Red Ribbon Week during October 22-26. We had an assembly on Friday to kick off the week. It was about saying no to drugs. Police officers came and talked to us about drug safety and told us about how we can help by not buying drugs or using drugs. They brought in a helicopter and an army truck. At lunch we got to go in the vehicles, look at the inside, and get autographs signed. I got my paper signed by someone named Carl. I thought he and his dog were awesome. His dog found a guy with drugs on him super fast during a demonstration. Red Ribbon Week is really fun.
