Coming Soon to a School Near You?

The Marathon for a Drug Free UK looks like just another way to try and teach young people about the potential harm psychoactive substances can cause.

During the run, the organisers plan to distribute booklets from the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. If you are not familiar with that organisation you can find out more about them here.

It looks as though the run will pass through my district council's area so I'm about to contact my local councillor to ask him to confirm that none of the schools will be involved.

Not sure about Scotland but in England it would be a County Councillor or Unitary authority councillor as District Councils are not responsible for education.

If Scientology is behind this, I share your concern. Are there any Scientologists willing to "come out" here?

If you'd mentioned it was a Scientology group you'd have saved me clicking on the link and visiting their page. Now I have a scientology cookie on my PC and will have to throw it in the bin

Bang on fm it is Scientology as it calls itself, bad news for anyone daft enough to get involved but the young are vulnerable.

The word / spelling / pronounciation of the word 'school' always leaves me somewhat ... uneasy.

My Norton flags both links as Red so unless Tom Cruise makes an appearance may be it will not catch.

I can't imagine why - there's nothing wrong with them. There are three links, by the way.

I am not surprised that are few responses to your thread as soon as "Scientology" enters the equation most people are off. Quite rightly too.

I bought a book on "The Church of Scientology" about 40 yrs ago as a matter of interest. What a load of crap, they got my address from some where and still keep sending me their garbage even though I have moved twice.

I wasn't really expecting much of a discussion.

This marathon looks to be in its early stages of planning so I thought a few people might become aware of it and, just maybe, stop a local school from taking part.
