Broomfield drops D.A.R.E.

In a surprise move, the crime-ridden city of Broomfield has decided to abandon the D.A.R.E. program, which teaches children about the evils of drugs.

City officials cite rising costs and the inflexibility of the lessons the D.A.R.E. program teaches as the reason why they're dropping the program.

If the D.A.R.E. program is cancelled in Broomfield, and there is every indication that it will be, more and more children grow up without learning that pot is a gateway drug for heroin, that caffeine is a drug every bit as evil and addictive as cocaine, and that they should help their parents kick their drug habits by reporting them to the police.

When this sad state it reached, the leaders of Broomfield will have only themselves to blame.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
