Save Our Children, Legalize Drugs
This handout challenges people to realize that due to prohibition, drugs are often carried, dealt, and pushed by kids.
This handout challenges one of the greatest Drug Warrior myths there is. What myth is that? That prohibition keeps drugs out of the hands of kids.
My suggestion for using this handout is to have it ready in your hand, once you get the attention of your subject say something like, "Did you know that because of prohibition, drugs are easier for kids to get?" Then hand them the paper.
Don't hand them the paper first, then speak. Too much information at once. This one can be tough to digest for people who have been brainwashed with the incessant drumbeat lie that prohibition keeps drugs out of the hands of kids.
Read the essay linked to in the first paragraph for more background. Please also consider reading the essays in the section, The Children, as well as knowing the advice Dr. Hochman gives: read it, watch it. For the time being this page is just a holder to the handout, not a full explanation of the reasoning behind the saying.
