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

Would you lend your car to your child knowing that he/she cannot drive ?

  • Yes
  • No

non

No parent would lend his car to his child knowing he/she has not learnt to drive. It would also be unconscionable to let one’s teenager go out without having taught him/her what drugs are. Nowadays availability of these products is such that youth can procure them in all the places they frequent – educational establishments, parties, class dinners, rallies, sport clubs... Parents must inform themselves objectively and scientifically about the products so to educate their children on drugs and provide them with the arguments to refuse them. Let us remember that drug addiction doesn’t just happen to others!

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).
