The biggest thing drug education programs are doing now is allowing students to have informed and open conversations about drugs, primarily marijuana. In San Francisco, around 20 schools are using a curriculum called “Being Adept” that allows students and teachers to discuss the risks behind marijuana, as well as the motives for why people would use the drug. It’s not about using old-fashioned scare tactics, but rather about making sure children have a full understanding of what marijuana is and how it works. The Being Adept program even teaches students about the different kinds of marijuana products available, including edibles, concentrates and more. Another major theme for drug education programs is “Delay.” Instead of telling kid to not use marijuana, teachers and adults are telling them to simply wait.
