Transcript of DrugsBreakU
Nearly 7.2 million (18.8%) were binge drinkers, and 2.3 million (6.0%) were heavy drinkers. (Sadd.org) Drugs are an immense problem in our youth culture. The desire to use drugs needs to be reduced, everything from: Cocaine and heroin to alcohol and cigarettes are being immensely used in our young culture, more so alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes. The government decides that putting a higher penalty on drug crimes will deter society from using them. According to the bureau of justice in the last 15 years there has been a steady number of annual drug crimes of around 200,000 a year, the penalties are not deterring these consumers, but are just getting worse and continue to sell and consume these products. Judicial penalties are obviously not working, with the young culture playing a big part of the crimes in society, there has to be a change in what we do to deter this. Detering the young population will take society and the peers around these young adults to encourage them to become involved in extra-curricular activities, Being more involved with their families and being able to have a role model that they can learn and base their morals and values around. They are going to get the right morals and values from being involved in God and each day living for him and not themselves, also knowing that each and every person has a reason why they are on this earth today. The average age of first alcohol use is 12 and the average age of first drug use is 13.
According to the (National Institute on Drug Abuse), 93 percent of all teenagers have some experience with alcohol by the end of their senior year of high school and 6 percent drink daily. On Teendrugabuse.us it is said to be that 8-9 % less christians use drugs: Alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes, than do the non-christians. DrugSbreakU Young people who spend time with their parents, talk with them and feel close to them are overwhelmingly less likely to drink (62 percent versus43 percent) or to use other drugs (87 percent versus 77 percent) than are those who don't. (Teens Today study, September 6, 2008) Say NO to drugs! Being a high school student and having temptations in and around my life, I am personally connected with each one of my deterrence’s that I present in the avoidance of drugs. I have not only experienced and know how it dramatically impacts your life but also the statistics clearly show each one of my points decreases the percentage rate of drug usage for kids who are engaged and involved in what I presented in this presentation. Lets not leave all the drug deterences to law enforcement. Society needs to take it upon themselves and become involved in the solution.
