We seem to have a problem and it's spreading all
around. It's a present day dilemma, that's destroying
our children's lives. If you don't know what this is -
This dilemma is called DRUGS.
If you don't know about DRUGS - it's time that you
found out. Get your head out of the sand and start
looking all around. Any drug can be a killer, but they
don't advertise. If you take it just once - you might
be HOOKED for life, or maybe worst - you may even
lose your life.
You have to know about DRUGS, learn everything
you can - just don't ever take them, or a slave you'll
be to them. If we can fight this problem, we can have
a better world. Than maybe some of our children won't
lose their lives so young...
