  • Tuesday is GHOST OUT DAY for Students in the Drug Free Youth Community Against Toxic Chemical Hazards. They will be wearing black and remain silent to resemble the millions of people who die every year due to drug and tobacco use, and their unspoken voices and stories they couldn’t tell. The silence stands for the common tragedy that is overlooked as “the norm”. The Clubs mission is to spread awareness of the effects of drugs and tobacco. Let’s put an end to drug use, marketing, and targeting of youth! Can you CATCH your breath? Or are you a Lab Rat for the Vape companies?
