METHOD
GIN: "Ilicit Drugs"
Psychological View
Why do we want to focus more on minors than on adults?
At a younger age, there's the tendency of being easily impressed and influenced
Children are the future, and we want to make that as clean and bright as possible.
What better way than to teach them at this age?
- Educative drug awareness for children
Imagine
Close your eyes, and picture a drug-filled universe
The necessity of drugs in children affect them in the future.
No jobs
No goals
No dreams

We want children to know that the usage of ilegal or any type drugs, vanquish all chances of such hopes and dreams
Did you know?
Between the ages of 13 and 17, 3 out of 10 students consume 2 or more ilicit drugs.
- Studies didn't include tobacco and alcohol
Bolivia is one of the leading producers of hydrochloride cocaine

BOLIVIA
In 2011, an uncle asked his nephew to deliver a package after a family reunion.
- Package contained cocaine
- Destination: Puerto Suarez

Children are often used as
"mules"
Minors have a lower risk to go to jail
- Adults in narcotic businesses don't want to be caught

Reasons
Why makes children fall into drugs?
Depression
Child Abuse
Social Influences
Lack of familiar stability
Money (Working in Narcotics)
- Eventually, they will try it


*Do you want to rely on drugs for everything? Even if it risks your future?
In extreme cases:
Panic attacks
Anxiety
Hallucinations
Definition:
Cocaine is a strong central nerve stimulant that increases levels of dopamine in brain circuits, regulating pleasure and movement.

Drugs such as:
Alcohol
Cocaine
Inhalants
Sniffing glue (“cola de zapatero")

In Bolivia, children often buy inhalants, glue, and gasoline to satisfy their vice.
- Easy to find
- Cheap prices

Did you know?
There are currently more than 762 gangs in Bolivia.

Danger
Initiations
Life Compromise
Gang "Pet"
- Most times: children used for narcotic business transportation
Why?
Minors have less chances to serve prison time
"Boss" won't get caught and will continue ilicit activities
Children are innocent and easily influenced
- Gangs take advantage of that
The mission is to inform and warn children before illicit drugs influence them. Their future, our future, will be healthier, happier, and brighter.
