Constable Jeff Scott forgot to mention (The News, Oct. 26), nearly 
every study, including government studies, show Drug Abuse Resistance 
Education (DARE) is a failure and may be causing more drug use than 
no anti drug education at all.

It's understandable that police and their unions want to create more 
low risk jobs and increase job security, but the money should be used 
for programs proven effective; which is not DARE.

And isn't there a conflict of interest when DARE police officers 
teach that cannabis (marijuana, the devil weed), is bad and God 
indicates He created all the seed bearing plants saying they are all 
good, on literally the very first page of the Bible (see: Genesis 
1:11-12 and 29-30)?
