I used to get LSD and STDs confused!! So one day we had an AIDS prevention lesson at school, and the teacher said "AIDS is an STD" I immediatley raised my hand (I was very proud to know what LSD was) and said "My dad told me that people in the 60's had STDs and they would see stuff and then write songs about them." The teacher was very confused.

I used to think that if someone gave you acid, you could completely counter the effects by taking an antacid.

You know D.A.R.E. (drug abuse resitance education) that thing they teach in 5th grade where a policeman come in every week and teaches not to use drugs? in the cafeteria of my elementry school they had this bumper sticker on the wall with

D.A.R.E
Drug abuse resistance education

written on it. i couldn't read very well and i probably didn't know what resistance was. for some reason i thought it was telling you to do drugs and i was confused for years untill i finally figured out what it said.

When I was little I thought that illegal drugs must be all kinds of fun flavors. Because why else would people want to take them?

When I was young, I heard 'LSD' as 'Alice D.', and I wondered for a long time why it was named after someone named 'Alice D.'

When I was in kindergarten, we had an "anti-drugs" day. I thought my sign was the best in the class. What did it say?

When I was younger my Father would let me watch a show, America's Most Wanted. They did one episode about heroin and how bad it was. Well, later that night I was laying in bed thinking about heroin when I decided I needed a glass of water. I jump off my bed and feel a prick on my foot. I FREAKED OUT. Leaped back onto my bed, shouting and screaming because I thought there were people under the floor sticking needles up through my carpet to inject me with heroin. After that I'd wear sneakers all the time, afraid that if I didn't I'd be injected with heroin and become an addict.

Awesome.

At my high school there was a sign saying "Drug Free Zone" and I thought it meant you could get free drugs at the school (I was probably 7 or 8) and I still thought it was weird that the police didn't like come to arrest the drug dealers every day!

When I was around 8 or 9 there was a sign in the school nurses office that said "Speed Kills" I always thought that it meant driving fast. Even though there were little pills in the picture background. I must have been 16 before I figured out what they meant.

In 6th grade, we took a survey about drugs and alcohol. They were questions like "Have you ever been to a party and drunk alcohol?" and answers were like "a, never; b, once; c; several times" etc. One of the questions was "Have you ever used LSD?" and, thinking LSD was "Legally Sold Drugs" I said "several times" and for the "if yes" question I put "once a week or more".

When I was in kindergarten I saw the this is your brain on drugs commercial. (The one with egg in the frying pan) well, one morning my mom made me scrambled eggs for breakfast. I went to school and told my teacher that my mom had made me eat drugs for breakfast. Well, my mom got called to the school and to explain about the commercial and how I had eggs for breakfast.

When I was little (about 8), I used to think that poppy seed muffins were actually drugs because my grandpa said if I had a muffin like that and took a drug test, I'd be positive. So naturally when I went through the D.A.R.E. program, I was anxious to share my knowledge. When the officer asked "Have you ever seen any drugs before besides alcohol?" to the class (this was when I was 10)I raised my hand. The officer naturally raised his eyebrows and said "Would you care to explain?" and I said
"If you go to a grocery store or bakery, you see those poppy seed muffins! They're out in the open where anyone could get at them! I thought drugs are dangerous and get you into trouble!" Most of my school mates laughed and the officer was too and explained to me that those muffins aren't actual drugs and won't really harm you. (But the drug test thing was true, he told me!)

When I was around seven, one of my friends was goofing off during Crafts and managed to hit me smack on the upper lip with a gob of glue. I burst into tears and told her I was going to die, because she had made me sniff glue.

i grew up during the heavy anti-drug propaganda. amidst all the 'drugs are bad' & 'don't do drugs' slogans, they had forgotten to differentiate drugs from medicines.

i was appalled when we drove by a pharmacy with a large, publicly visible "Drug Store" sign.
