Drugs: A Deadly Game

What

The "Drugs: A Deadly Game" campaign is a multimedia, multifaceted drug education experience designed to stimulate discussion in small-group or classroom settings. It is designed as a market basket of easily digestible facts that will get children talking—and learning—about the dangers of drug use and abuse.

More than 17 million copies of "Drugs: A Deadly Game" brochures have been distributed since 1987, making it one of the largest national antidrug efforts ever undertaken.

Launched in October 1998, the fourth edition speaks to today's issues, such as:

  • Taking a stand against drugs
  • How friendships are tested by drugs
  • How drugs lead to a real dead end
  • A true-life "it happened to me" story
  • What a body on drugs can't do
  • Athletes and drug use
  • How to say "No"

Why

Drug abuse is our country's number one concern—above crime and AIDS. Every day, more than 3,000 teenagers start smoking. One in 10 Americans has used cocaine at least once. An American is killed in an alcohol-related accident every 22 minutes. One police officer fighting drugs is killed every 57 hours. Drinking and driving is the number one killer of teenagers.

Who

"Drugs: A Deadly Game" is intended for all youth, male and female, whether or not they are involved in Scouting.

Where

"Drugs: A Deadly Game" materials have been distributed to each of the BSA's local councils and are ideal for use in classrooms across the country. The program is also appropriate for drug rehabilitation centers, police departments, corporations, religious institutions, and youth groups.
