Scientology Official Calls for Government-Community Cooperation to Attack Drug Abuse
Date:5/6/2010

A Scientology community relations specialist, citing a recent address by the U.S. Drug Control Policy Director, says government and private sector cooperation against drug trafficking and drug abuse is essential and warns that profit-making interests will attempt to impede both.

Los Angeles (Vocus) May 6, 2010 -- Speaking to a coalition of anti-drug activists Tuesday night at the new Church of Scientology of Los Angeles in Hollywood, the Reverend Robert Adams pointed to establishment of the Interagency Working Group on Demand Reduction established by the White House Office of Drug Control Policy (the “Drug Czar”) as a positive step, and called for similar interaction at regional, state and local level.

A spokesperson for Church of Scientology International, Rev. Adams said that despite billions poured into “the drug problem” by governments, meaningful demand reduction will only come about “by involving everyone and bringing on all solutions, starting with education. No single group or government can do it alone, but together we can rid our communities of drugs in a single generation.”

He reminded the audience that “Drug proliferation is all about money and exploiting people who have false information or no information about drugs. So the first step is to broadly distribute the truth about drugs, to empower individuals with the knowledge of what drugs really are and what they really do to the body, mind and spirit.”

Adams said, “It is exactly at that point that ‘demand reduction’ kicks in -- when individuals decide for themselves that drug use is not for them.”

The Church of Scientology has conducted community-based drug education programs for more than 20 years, reaching millions with factual information about drugs internationally through distribution of "The Truth About Drugs" booklet series, drug awareness events, media, Internet sites, mailings, billboards and award winning educational videos and films.
