Your editorial suggested that we stop wasting money on DARE and "try
something new."

If DARE the organization wants to survive it should try telling the truth
or at least stop the obvious lies.

The most common one is calling all recreational drugs bad.  Another is that
there is no such thing as responsible use, and there is no benefit, even
when used responsible.

That is an arguable point.

However, how does anyone expect the students to believe that their own
eyes and experience contradict?
