I have learned many things in D.A.R.E class. One thing I learned from Deputy Thomas is to stand up to peer pressure. It is important to stand up to peer pressure because if you don’t you can end up somewhere and do something you don’t want to do or be.
Another thing that I learned in D.A.R.E. class is that if you smoke tobacco or drink and you know you’re not supposed to be doing it you could ruin your friend ship. I like my friends and I don’t want to lose my friends just because I am drinking or smoking something.
I also learned that tar is in marijuana smoke than there is in tobacco. Marijuana affects your brain and your body. Marijuana can also cause short-term memory loss. Marijuana can also causes cancer, breathing problems and colds.
I pledge to this day and until I die not to do any kinds of drugs, alcohol or tobacco. I am going to stand up to for myself and never let people push me around calling me names just because I won’t use drugs, alcohol or tobacco.
