Seattle Kids Against Drugs – Scientology

The Drug-Free Marshals of Seattle, a youth-based drug education and prevention group sponsored by the Church of Scientology of Seattle, dressed up for Halloween to “treat” kids to the truth about drugs.

The Queen Anne community of Seattle Washington holds an annual celebration called “Trick-or-Treat on the Waterfront,” to provide a safe place for children and teens on Halloween, and the Drug-Free Marshals were out in force to help kids live safely all year round, by passing out booklets published by the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, containing factual information about the most popular street drugs.

They also passed out Drug-Free Marshals badges and had kids sign their drug-free pledge, “deputizing” them to make their own schools and neighborhoods safe from drugs as well.

The event is part of Red Ribbon Week, an annual national drug prevention program, traditionally held throughout the last week of October.

The “Drug-Free Marshals” program was created in 1993 to educate children on the dangers of drugs. When they take the oath to be Drug-Free Marshals, youngsters pledge to remain drug-free and encourage their family and friends to do so too.

Over the past 14 years, more than 3 million have taken the pledge to live drug-free lives in cities and towns all over the world.
