Drug-Free South is working to eradicate the demand for drugs in Tennessee and so establish health and happiness for all citizens. This past week, they took their message to a motorcycle show in Rutherford County.
Drug-Free South is known for spreading its message on the Truth About Drugs to students across Tennessee by delivering lectures in schools, but this past week members were invited to a motorcycle show where over a hundred riders were able to receive, and benefit from, the information.
“We will go to anyone, anywhere in the state with our message,” says Marc Vallieres who volunteers for Drug-Free South, “everyone deserves to receive the truth about drugs, and it’s never too late to reach out to someone – they can always benefit from knowing.”
Drug-Free South volunteers distributed dozens of booklets to those attending.
Vallieres went on to say, “It is important to realize that each person who receives the truth could be another life saved. That is why we do what we do.”
Drug-Free South is a chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, based in Los Angeles, California, which provides educational tools to help students learn the truth about drugs. The Foundation provides a booklet which covers common street names of drugs, short and long term effects as well as myths that a dealer might say to make the sale. It also provides an in-depth documentary of former users telling their story and an entire educational curriculum to help students understand what drugs really are.
