I think kids should kids should learn about drugs in school because it can teach them what to be aware of and what they look like, or where they can be found. But I wanna know what you think.

Personally, I do think kids should be taught about drugs in school, but many say that the best was to understand the whole of an argument, is to argue the opposite of what you think. So, without further ado,

Students should not be taught about drugs in school because it is a waste of time. The students who take these drugs are most likely already addicted to drugs, and also probably do not pay attention to turn from their addictions, anyway. However, the kids who actually take the lessons seriously, more than likely, do not even want to take drugs, anyways. Therefore, the knowledge kids acquire in school is often just adding reasons to an already determined fact in those children.

I think they should learn about drugs because if they are not aware of what is out there and how to be aware. They would also be told the affects and the consequences. Another reason they should learn about drugs is they can be more aware and see pictures who are using these drugs. It is not like they would give the kids drugs and be like "here use this". No, they would be able to show pictures and police officers can come and teach them instead of the teachers.
