DARE is like apple pie.

It is extremely popular but, just like apple pie, popularity doesn't mean 
it keeps kids from doing drugs.

The evidence against DARE is so overwhelming that even the U.S. government 
and the founders of DARE themselves had to admit that DARE doesn't work. 
This isn't a question of doing the research on DARE anymore.

Now it is a question of getting people like Mr. Gladue to actually read it. 
As for the legalization of pot, it is obvious that Mr. Gladue hasn't read 
the research on that subject, either.

If he is actually interested in reading the evidence, he can find a wealth 
of information on both topics at:
