It is supported by the DEA as you can see by this comment: “One way to help young people stay drug free is to have an honest exchange with them about the dangers of drug use,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. “National Drug Facts Week does just that – it opens a dialogue that gives youth the facts about drugs. We are proud to support NIDA’s efforts to communicate directly with our youth across America so that they have the tools to make informed choices about drug use.”
Also during National Drug Facts Week, NIDA scientists will hold their annual Web chat with teens around the country. Drug Facts Chat Day will be held Jan. 28 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
