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.
