Scientology Kids and Drugs

Scientology Kids and Drugs

I know many Scientology families where the kids are very active in drug education and prevention.

Scientologists take a strong and firm stand against drugs, and for the most part our kids grow up knowing the facts about drugs. I'm sure there are still some who experiment, but from the families I know who are Scientologists compared to those who are not, the Scientology kids are a lot better educated about drugs and they are more armed against peer pressure to take them.

There is nothing that pisses me off more than seeing young kids strung out on drugs.

I've taken the liberty to reprint part of a five-year-old article about kids of a friend of mine. My apologies to Nick and Sadie (who are quite grown up now, no longer the engaging 11 and 12-year olds they were when this photo was taken, although they are still great kids).

LOS ANGELES- 12- and 11-year-old brother and sister, Nick and Sadie James, are being honored for two years of whirlwind activity fighting increasing drug use amongst youth. They will be recognized next month in Washington D.C. along with other regional winners of the "Making My Community Drug Free" contest. The nationwide competition marks the 10th anniversary of the Drug-Free Marshals anti-drug campaign sponsored by the Church of Scientology.

Last month, the two accepted a proclamation from Los Angeles Mayor James Hahn and the LA City Council commending the Drug-Free Marshals on their program's success. Since 1993 more than 3.1 million youth worldwide have taken a pledge to live drug-free lives.

In the years since they did this, a new foundation was created to help make these and other newer materials available to kids and teens. It's called the Foundation for a Drug Free World.
