I thought that to be king or queen or president all you had to do was fill out a job application. Then at school I actually learned about the government system and I was like what the heck my way is better.

When i was in kindergarten, we had a class on drugs every Tuesday (well by drugs they ment taking medicine when you weren't supposed to. Later that year I spent the night at my grandma's and we went to Fannie Farmer's (the candy store). To me famer sounded like pharmacy and I thought we were going to buy illeagal drugs. I was so scared until we got in there. Then I was happy!

i used to hear about people getting stoned all the time and after reading the book The Lottery i always thought that stoned meant... well, that people were throwing rocks at someone. one day in 8th grade our class had a discussion about drugs and the word stoned came up again... when i was younger some people threw bricks at my dog and i brought that up and said that my dog got stoned!!! lol!!!

When I was little, I would hear about people smoking weed.. Well I thought that "weed" just meant any type of weed like in the yard or something so I wondered why everyone didnt get in trouble for having weeds in their yard... I was quite an idiot when I was little. hahah

When I was 4, I heard about cocaine on the news and I asked what it was... anyway, I was at the beach with my parents and they looked in the sand and said to me "look honey! look at the COQUINA" (coquina are those little shelled animals in the sand) ... well I thought they were saying COCAINE.. so I was yelling "look theres more cocaine!!" ... HAHA.. I then realized when I was a bit older that they were indeed talking about coquina.. haha it was embarassing to think that I said that back then though... xD

When I was dating my boyfriend we went to the country so he could introduce me to his mother. She told me stories about her sister and them going to the bar and coming home stoned.

So I leaned over to my boyfriend and whispered your mom is really with it. I didn't know she does drugs. My boyfriend giggled and said No! She meant they were drunk. Well I never heard that term used before to describe drinking. It's a good thing I didn't say anything about her being a New Wave type Mom!

I remember when I was in the fifth grade and the DARE officer came in and showed us the drug case, there was a stamp in there with a picture of dancing monkies on it. When he got to the stamp, he explained people would stick it on their skin and get the drugs that way and the cute monkies might make it enticing to a kid. I didn't understand that this stamp had drugs in the adhesive on the back and from then on thought that sticking a postage stamp on my skin would kill me or make me very sick. And I was very wary of anyone (doctors offices, parade people, etc) who handed out stickers or stamps to little kids.

I learned in the fourth grade that mixing drugs with drinks could kill you. A few months after when I was sick, my mom told me to swallow my advil with water. I cried because I thought she was trying to kill me!

When I first learned about illegal drugs, I heard that people sold them on the street. From then on I thought that in every single alley in every single town there was a man in a black coat with big pockets on the inside to hold all of the drugs. Until a while ago, I always ran really fast when I passed by an alleyway.

I used to believe that "smoking pot" involved melting something in a large pot until it smoked; a smoking pot. That commercial with the egg and the "this is your brain on drugs" did not help clear up this confusion!

When I was a kid my parents used to smoke pot right in front of me. And I kind of knew it was bad but I thought a joint was a kind of "home made cigarette". I figured this out on my own, Lol. Well, when I started kindergarten, my teacher was talking about drugs and asked if we had any questions. Needless to say i was curious that home made cigs weren't mentinend in this drug talk. I asked the teacher "My Mom and Dad smoke cigarettes, but they're funny cigarettes. They make them theirselves...."
Later, the teacher told my Mom that she knew what they were up to. But she said she woulden't turn them in as long as they promised to stop doing it around their kid! Man, is that messed up or what???

When I was a kid, I thought drugs and antibiotika was the same thing. I'ts because the Norwegian name for a type of drug is Narkotika. I thought antibiotika and narkotika was the same thing, so I believed that doing drugs was okay until i became elleven and started to understand the difference

I used to believe, probably up until the age of 12 or so (sad) that a "Drugstore" was a place to sell actual drugs. And I thought I was so clever, mainly because I thought I could help the police cut back on the drug problem infiltrating our society, cause hey, I knew where all the drugstores were...

When I was about six I heard my parents and their friends in the next room light up some pot to smoke when they thought I was asleep. I was petrified that the police would come any minute to arrest them (my parents didn't usually smoke pot, their friends brought it). I smelled the strange smell of the smoke and covered up my face with the pillow because I figured that then I wouldn't breathe any in.
I figured that if I didn't breathe it in the police couldn't arrest me!
(of course they never came)

When I was a freshman in highschool I read an article on the world wide web about the "banadine" high. Little did I know that it was an old spoof so I shaved the inside of a bunch of banana peels, boiled them down. And smoke the brown resin trying to get high...

My wife's maid-of-honor had no idea what GHB (date rape drug). Once while at a party, my brother-in-law added sum rum to her soda bottle, put the cap back on, and handed it to her. She asked what it was and he told her "It's your soda, but I put GHB in it." She thought it was some type of alcohol and professed at her difficulty opening the cap:
"I can't open my GHB with my nails on!"

i was little when they used to show those anti drug commercials that showed an egg and said it was your brain, and then they showed the egg frying, and said that this was your brain on drugs, any questions? i took it literally. i refused to eat eggs. i started experimenting with drugs when i was like 16. right before i turned 18, i ate scrambled eggs for the first time. the morning after me and one of my friends were up all night pill popping.
