From the Paper:

"To a lot of people, D.A.R.E. stands for the strongest pledge that America, as a nation can make to restrain and control drug abuse by juveniles and students, as well as, that it justifies to be practiced, even when one recognizes and identifies that it is not working. By consequently misleading America into thinking that the American government is doing something grave and significant on the subject of maintaining kids off drugs, D.A.R.E. is obstructing the nation's pains to discover more effective ways to realize the broader goals of national drug policy, viz., to defend the public health and security, to put off abuse, as well as to get rid of the offenses and aggression connected with unlawful drug trafficking."
