When I was a young girl I used to believe that drugs were sold in drugstores so I never dare get into one.

When my friend was little her mom warned her about not taking food from strangers. One day a neighbor gave her a bag of chips and her mom freaked out, shouting that they "had drugs in them" and now she was a druggie. The next day at school an officer happened to come to their class to talk about not doing drugs and she began to cry and confessed to the whole class she was a druggie. She had to visit the psychologist and principal before they realized what really happened!

I used to get nervous when my mom went to the drug store because I thought that they sold illegal drugs. I was afraid that if she got caught she'd get arrested. My grandma drove us all there one day and my mom went in and I was torn between disbelief that my mom would involve grandma in these shenanigans and shock that grandma was a willing participant.

As a young child all my cousins were many years older than me and by the time i was 8, they were all in college. They were always talking about "taking shots," but I didn't really realize what it meant except that it involved drinking from a tiny glass. Then, I had a horrible allergic reaction to something and had to go to the doctor. The doctor tole me I would need to get a shot of Benadryl. I smiled back at him assuming he was going to grab a small glass of medicine for me. Imagine my horror when he brought out a needle!

When I was little I used to believe that if you take medicine when you're not sick, you'll get sick. (Like, if you take headache medicine you'll get a headache, if you take stomachache medicine you'll get a stomachache, etc.) I believed this until I was 11. To this day I'm still terrified of taking medicine when I don't need it. That's probably a good thing!

when i was in elementary school i was taught not to "drink and drive" i had no idea that they were talking about alcohol. For years i thought they were talking about any type of liquid, even water!

When I was little, a slew of "don't drink and drive" campaigns began playing more and more often on the radio and television. I didn't take long before I was interrogating my father, caught red-handed, sipping from his can of pepsi while taking me with him to the grocery store. - seems they left a pretty important detail out of the slogan.

When I was a child the D.A.R.E. program worked for me (for a few years). My biggest fear as a child was toliet paper in public; I thought that junkies would go around to all the gas stations and put drugs in the toliet paper. I made my mother always keep toliet paper in the car so I didn't have to use the drugged up toliet paper and get addicted.

When I was in Kindergarten we were using gluesticks and for some reason I decided to smell mine. Obviously a little confused about "huffing glue", a classmate of mine informed me that because I had sniffed glue I was going to die. The teacher had to call my mom to pick me up because I was so hysterical and when it was time for bed I had both my parents stay in my room with me. It's not easy facing your own mortality at 5 years old.

When i was a kid the D.A.R.E. officers came to my school and were telling us all about drugs, and when the cop got to the part about how dealers often give you free samples to get you hooked, I raised my hand and told him I knew that was wrong, because my parents were always complaining about how much pot costs these days...so yeah, the cops came by the house that night, luckily my folks were fresh out, apparently they had just put out their last joint. I had no idea pot was illegal until that night.

I am 27. When I was 17 or 18, my now Father-In-Law convinced me that seeds from marijuana could be popped in the mircowave to make "pot-corn". I tried it and found out otherwise.

When I was 5 or 6, I found a syringe somewhere(in our garden I think), and my mom told me not to touch them, because they could be dangerous. Not knowing what drugs were, I thought they contained medicine, and medicine was deadly for us if we weren't sick.

When I was in elementary school, all the buses had a sign posted that said "Bring or use drugs--face expulsion." I thought this sign said "Bring or use drugs--face explosion," I guess because I didn't understand about being kicked out of school. So I thought, probably until I was about 12 and re-read the sign, that if you used drugs, your face would explode.

When I was young, there was a lot of public service advertisements about the danger of sniffing glue - it being addictive, and will cause you to suffocate etc.

I took this to heart so much that when we did arts and crafts at school, i used to hold my breath whenever the kid-friendly paper glue was anywhere near me

I always heard about how you shouldn't do drugs in school, and I always wondered why they didn't just make them illegal if they were so bad for you. I didn't know until I was about 12 that marijuana and such are indeed illegal.

Me and my friend think that Mini Pickles and Orange tic-tacs are drugged!!! We had ate tons of mini pickles and orange tic-tacs and we started acting drunk/high (aka laughing hysterically at everything and saying iGat, Gat apple stylie!" etc)
so to this day we think that pickles are cured in alcohol and tic tacs are orange pills.

I used to believe that the pharmacies that said "Drugstore" actually sold illegal drugs, so when my parents went inside to get a disposable camera or something I would be scared to go inside Lol.
