It is imperative to avoid taking drugs for the first time

Raymond Yans is President of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), an independent organization for the implementation of the United Nations drug conventions. He asks of those responsible, of teachers and of parents not to lower their guard in the face of the increasing trivialization of cannabis.

  • Because young people need to know the truth about drugs. They represent a considerable part of the drug market, of the medical aid, follow up and counseling
  • Because parents are the primary educations and specialists in their children (see Guy Gilbert quotation)
  • Because parents are motivated by love, they speak the truth
  • Because you cannot talk in a relevant, objective and scientific manner without knowing the subject
  • Because with confidence comes control, it is vital to discuss with your children in a relevant way in order to bring them solid arguments if needed
  • Because the information diffused amongst youth in schools does not always tell the truth
  • Because parents and adults who want to do good by young people are more numerous than drug dealers
  • Because drugs are everywhere
  • Because the misinformation about drugs, which is primary source of income globally along with arms and petrol, is distributed on a wide scale
  • Because just as we do not let a child drive a car without a licence, it is irresponsible to let your children go out without knowing the danger of drugs
  • Because when we are informed we can see the consequences of drug consumption, we can read between the lines of press articles, of radio and television broadcasts
  • Because learning from a website, during a training session, or an Enfance Sans Drogue seminar requires little time and provides a lot of knowledge
  • Because one informed person can inform 10 more in his social circle: friends and family, colleagues.

 

IT IS URGENT THAT YOU EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT DRUGS

 

Every responsible adult should have a heartfelt desire to educate the young people around him so as to prevent them taking drugs for the first time.

Quiz

If one has consumed drugs, is s/he tempted to take some more?

  • Yes
  • No

oui

Most drugs are stored in the body fats for years. During an exertion, a walk, sport, fear, surprise, stimulation, a bit of fat is burnt and very small quantities of drugs are released into the blood circulation. This will reactivate the effects of the drugs, making the user feel that they want more.

re poppers, aerosols, stain remover drugs?

  • Yes
  • No

oui

AEROSOLS Nitrous oxide and other pressurized gases such as those contained in whipped cream canisters or computer anti-dust sprays also have hallucinogenic effects. In a few seconds they produce excitement, dizziness, euphoria, loss of consciousness and affect the central nervous system through lack of oxygen. Moreover they are inhaled under pressure and can provoke lung frostbite and vocal chords injuries, (eg. immediately after taking this drug the voice becomes lower.)

POPPERS Volatile nitrites have similar effects to nitrous oxide. Moreover they can provoke panic attacks, heart palpitations and headaches. They are also responsible for deaths by anoxia. They are vasodilators frequently used to relax sphincter muscles. They are carcinogenic and provoke serious immune deficiencies – such as AIDS.

STAIN REMOVER Stain removers are derived from ethylene. They are hallucinogenic but their effect is more calming, unlike poppers and aerosols, which are more stimulating. They cause damage that is neurological (deafness, tremor) and intellectual (dementia).

Is anyone who takes drugs a drug-addict ?

  • Yes
  • No

non

A drug-addict is someone who takes drugs in order to solve problems created by taking drugs. S/he thinks that s/he can stop taking them whenever s/he wants, however, in spite of the harmful consequences caused by consuming drugs, s/he cannot. If the drug-addict experiences withdrawal symptoms he will think only about providing himself with drugs even if it means acting against his morals. The demand is so strong that anything linked with will, effort, love or morals gradually disappears completely. Lies, violence, aggressiveness, moral or physical suffering, self-harm, being afraid to take part in everyday life become the norm. Because of these evil acts, the drug-addict looses his/her self-esteem and goes deeper into loneliness and suicidal urges.

Are there pills to stop drugs ?

  • Yes
  • No

non

Drugs are not a disease. The best way to stop them is not to take any. Heroin addicts who achieved withdraw admit that complete abstinence is the only solution. They say it themselves : it is more difficult to withdraw from Subutex (substitution drugs) than from heroin…

Is consumption of cannabis traceable in the body one week after consuming ?

  • Yes
  • No

ouiThe half-life of an active substance is the time required by a healthy body, with no previous drug use, to eliminate 50% of the absorbed substance. In the case of cannabis, the half-life is 96 hours or 4 days. This means that within 4 days the body has eliminated 50% of the initial dose. 4 days later, there will be 25% of the product left… Within 28 days, cannabis will be totally eliminated from the body of a person who has not consumed it regularly. Traces of decayed THC may be found in a regular consumer’s body up to 40 days after the last take. According to Dr Chamayou’s thesis, 18 months are needed to be completely cleared of cannabis.
