Our action consists of informing the maximum of people about drugs and their spreading amongst youth. Only real prevention can eradicate the curse of drugs.
Only people with a loving interest can take charge to prevent our children becoming the target of drug dealers, legal and illegal.
Parents are best suited to teach their children how to refuse drugs and to run prevention campaigns.
Someone who does not take drugs cannot become a drug addict. Unlike a disease that is caught, drugs can be refused. We have to give our children weapons to fight drugs in telling them the truth about drugs.
We all have to give our children the best protection against drugs by telling them the truth about them.

When you consume alcohol and cannabis simultaneously, these products mutually increase their effects. The current practice is to use alcohol and cannabis at the same time. Many young people nowadays use this common method to try to get “stoned”.
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.
Physicians are the first witnesses of drug addiction (See: News or Did you know sections)
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!
The 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.
