I used to think that my dad was "smoking pot" when he would smoke his pipe while sitting on the toilet.

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.

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".

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 in kindergarten, we had an "anti-drugs" day. I thought my sign was the best in the class. What did it say?
"Don't do AIDS."

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?

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

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 was in kindergarten when the "Don't Use Drugs" campaign was a national craze in public schools. In one of our weekly "drug education" sessions, my teacher told us something about a drug called "ice" that could kill you if you took it. I don't know why my rural elementary school felt the need to educate five-year-olds about the various names of street drugs, but from then on I thought that consuming frozen water would kill me. I think I had gone through half of the school year before my mom figured out why I was afraid of ice cubes.

When I was little during the "war on drugs" there was a Flintstones special on TV about drugs and peer pressure.
A boy on the program showed a character three marijuana joints.

I thought they were lemon wedges, and I didn't understand why they were so bad.

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 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.

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.

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!

My english teacher, Mr. Miller, gave us an assignment, "Write a paper on the effects of heroin on the community."

My entire assignment was about Wonder Woman.

One day when I was about 8, I over heard my cousins talking about my oldest cousin seeing drawfs stealing his candy... I was always afraid that drawfs would come and steal my candy when i asleep. Later I found out he was tripping on a illegal drug and had a bad trip and he was explaining to my aunt and uncle about his illegal use of drugs. To this day they still make fun of me...

when i was in the 3rd grade i thought that "smoking pot" was a big gigantic cauldron with smoke comming out. It wasn't until i was about 11 when i really found out what it meant.

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.

There was always this smelly kid at infant school who one day in the playground came up to me and said that his dad told him he knew how to fly. i asked how and the kid produced a small folded piece of paper containing soft white powder. I and a few mates who all beleived we were superman decided to have a dab and began hurling our selves off a playground wall. naturaly non of us grew wings and flew. Shocking to think what it could of been, i can say to all those worried parents that what i dabbed in infant school tasted nothing like the real thing. Danm must have been TALC!
