Additionally our Truth About Drugs campaign consists of activities that they can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages.
Through a worldwide network of volunteers, 50 million of drug prevention booklets have been distributed, tens of thousands of drug awareness events have been held in some 180 countries andTruth About Drugs public service announcements have been aired on more than 500 television stations. These materials and activities have helped people around the world learn about the destructiveside effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them.
The Foundation provides information you need to start a Truth About Drugs education and prevention activity in your area.” (The Foundation For A Drug Free World)
