(Re: Wayne's Word, Dec. 3)

For DARE to work, it must tell the truth. That is something prohibitionists
just can't do. The entire fiasco of prohibition is based on lies. The
brightest kids easily pick this up and won't believe anything the police
say. The gullible, who swallow the DARE myths, become future
prohibitionists. They will delight in removing liberty and enjoy jailing
the others. Their thrills will come from bashing down doors and brutalizing
the occupants, not from a gentle, healthful herb that relieves stress and
enlightens the intellect.
