Educate kids about drugs

Humanity is failing itself with every form of addiction, tobacco, alcohol, gambling, and the more serious forms of self-inflicted abuse from illegal drugs.

Such abuse is not only costing lives and misery to others, but costing the taxpayer billions annually in dealing with this abuse, both in prevention and treatment.

Surely the time has arrived to introduce the dangers of such habits into the classroom, starting from the primary level stage, as this curse of addiction deserves a place in our curriculum of education, right through to university stage.
