I Am One of Many
It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that everyone is doing drugs, that underage drinking is a rite of passage. But the truth is, most teens do not drink, do not smoke, and do not use other drugs. Most parents do not allow teenagers access to alcohol in their home. Most of us live and play drug free. From this idea, the I Am One Of Many campaign has sprung. This campaign encourages people to make a statement declaring that they are one of many who do not use drugs. It also informs adults that most local youth make good choices and positively contribute to our Nevada communities.
