DRCNet Response to the
Drug Enforcement Administration
Get It Straight!
Your life is important to us. That's why this book was written. If we can prevent just one young person from having a drug problem, then we've done our job. We've often told people that a combination of law enforcement, education, and community and family involvement is the way to turn this drug problem around.
Take what you've learned in this book and share it with your friends, teachers, and families. Share the facts with everyone you know. Together we can make a difference.

had used drugs. If you get that education and if you stay drug-free, you can make inroads
too. If I can do it, so can you!"
