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.
I was told that if you paint your cigarettes with nail polish and smoke them you get high. Yeah, right. Gag. Age 60 lungs at age 14.
I thought drug stores sold drugs. I never understood how they could sell illegal drugs.
I used to believe that being wasted meant feeling really tired.
When I was 5 my dad grew marijuana in his room and I'd always go inside and take a look at it. It was a tall beautiful green plant with an aroma that was TO DIE FOR. I asked my dad what it was and he said it was his garden that I couldn't look at anymore, but I'd always walk in and watch him prunning buds of the plant and weighing them out. I thought that since it was his garden these were the fruits that it bore. So I thought pot was a fruit of some type and dad was putting it in our dinner.
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
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 in 2nd grade, some kids in my class would crush smarties (the candy) and suck them up their noses! They claimed they were "snorting smack".
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 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!)
I used to see posters that said drug-free... and I thought it meant free drugs... so I was like "Hey mom, that's for you!" because she smoked ciggarettes.
When I was in grade school I believed that the only people who became dope addicts were the ones who'd been absent on the days we watched those films about how bad drugs were. Either that or they just didn't pay very close attention.
For some utterly bizarre reason, I used to think chewing gum was some kind of drug. When my dad took me with him to the barber shop, the barber always tried to give me a stick of gum...I always let my dad have it. ^_____^
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 in was little i used to think that cocaine was sugar until i found out what it was
when my mother warned me that there were people who sold drugs, i thought that they were selling bad things on the street like a lemonade stand.
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 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.
I used to think that you could get arrested for having a packet of Rizla's that had bits torn off the top...
A few people have said they caught their parents smoking pot but they were a "different kind of cigarette". Well, when I was 5-6, my dad smoked pot, and of course, I thought it was legal, it was just green. I also vaguely remember him saying you could feed it to cows, (maybe I inhaled too much in his small apartment) and so when I was in kindergarten summer school (didn't need it) we were studying farms, and we were gonna have show-n-tell, and I asked my dad if I could bring some....I couldn't though.
After Grange Hill's "Just say no campaign" that people would force me to take drugs ... if only.
