SAY NO TO DRUGS

D.A.R.E. Criticizes ‘Euphoria’ For Glorifying Teen Drug Use The HBO series Euphoria is catching some heat from the national anti-drug program D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education). In a recent statement, the organization has accused the show of “glorifying” drug use, addiction, “anonymous sex” among teenagers. “It is unfortunate that HBO, social media, television program reviewers, and paid advertising have chosen to refer to the show as ‘groundbreaking,’ rather than recognizing the potential negative consequences on school-age children who today face unparalleled risks and mental health challenges.” D.A.R.E has offered to meet with the executive and producer of the show to present their concerns directly. Do you think that TV shows and social media play a part directly in substance abuse in teenagers?
