The Power of Drug Use Education      

Drug Use Education (DUE) is a more than a drug abuse prevention tool; it's 21st century survival education that's missing today from the K12 curriculum.  DUE is the proposed solution that can catapult human evolution forward safely, leading to longer, stronger lives.  It focuses on teaching K12 students and adults basic and advanced first aid, medical drug administration, medical terminology,.and basic pharmacology.  It takes our K12 students out of the war zone and puts them back into the classroom, and then takes students into the community and teaching hospitals to learn from healthcare providers and other staff.  
DUE sets the focus on the medical use of drugs, and disciplines students with dose, frequency, and duration calculations, avoiding technical discussions that teach our youth how drugs are abused the same way that our K12 schools avoid teaching students how to steal or commit a homicide.  Because regardless whether future generations find social drug use acceptable or not, drug abuse never was in fashion, it isn't now, and it never will be.  As long as our society delays teaching the right way to properly dose drugs for medical purposes, we are opening the door for the opportunity to abuse them. 

 Along with medical drug use, the aim of DUE is to teach good nutrition and prepares young generations for a better and more wholesome life.  DUE is about giving the public  greater responsibility.   People need that responsibility restored.  Minorities especially need to be treated equally, and by teaching K12 students about medicine and pharmacology, we can be sure to see better care coming from our physicians who today are too often capricious in making decisions because of the patient ignorance.  A wise patient is the best patient to a good physician. 

The real power of DUE will be seen in the survival rate of patients in accidents, especially drug-related accidents.  Today, it takes an average of 14 mintues before a first responder dials 911 in the event of an automobile accident.  Many first responders do not have first aid training or they fear they may encounter a disease by giving CPR.  By the time the paramedical arrive it may be too late. 

But the real tragedy is for indciedents involving drug abuse.  The average time for a first responder to contact 911 is an estimated 192 minutes or 3.2 hours.  If some notworthy indicidents were included that average can jump up to 460 mintues or 7.6 hours.  This is due to the fear and ignorance caused by the War on Drugs. 

If we really care about the children of tomorrow, DUE is the program to support.  It is not just my program it is your program and the program that belongs to the public.
