Red Ribbon Week

This week is Red Ribbon Week. You see, there's a lot of problems with drugs now-a-days and Red Ribbon week informs kids about the danger and the bad things that drugs can do. The Red Ribbion part of Red Ribbon week didn't just come to be! It comes from a man, a story about a man.
     A few years ago there was a man. Who dedicated his life to a program in the United States. This program went to high drug use places and tried to stop and spy on drug dealers. This program arrested many people. This man was assigned to a group of dealers to watch and see where they were getting their drugs. Sad thing is, the dealers already knew who and where he was. They captured him and he disappeared. Four weeks after his disappearance  his body was found. He was tortured to death. In honor of this man his family and friends wore Red Ribbons, thats how Red Ribbon week came to be.
     Today I'd like to talk about the most dangerous drug out there. I bet you can't guess it. Can you?
if you guessed Meth, Cocaine, Crack, Marijuanna, or any other drug, you're wrong. The most DANGEROUS drug for people under 26 is (its a shocker)........ Alchohol! Yes, Alchohol. 
     Now I'm going to ask a few questions and I want to see if you can guess the answers. Please include your Pico I.D. in your comment also so in the next article I can recognize you.

Question 1: Why is Alchohol the most dangerous drug for people under the age of 26?

Question 2: Why do people not consider Alchohol a drug?

Question 3: How does Alchohol effect us.

Question 4: In the ages of 5-11 what skill is your brain mainly developing?

Question 5: From ages of 12-24 what skill is your brain mainly devoloping?
