Sessions wants to revive “DARE” propaganda program

Source: Rolling Stone

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions is advocating to reinstate the D.A.R.E. program, an anti-drug curriculum launched in 1983 by the Los Angeles Police Department, which has been criticized for being ineffective. … The program is already making a comeback in several communities, according to D.A.R.E.’s website, with Weymouth, MA, and Lake County, FL, among the areas to recently revive the program. Sessions added that the Department of Justice would work together with state and local authorities, along with its enlisting D.A.R.E., to stop drug dealers.” [editor’s note: Whether or not DARE is “effective” is a question of what it’s goals are. Those goals seem to boil down to raising tens of millions of dollars to pay cops to lie to kids. It’s been pretty effective at that; at scaring them into believing the lies, not so much – TLK] (07/12/17)
