While I'm all for teaching our kids about the dangers of smoking, drugs, and alcohol, I was not happy when my son came home TERRIFIED because I am a SMOKER. Now he's afraid I'm going to die any day now!!! They really should concentrate on ACADEMICS ....because that is where they are seriously lacking, according to NYS DOE. NCRS- YOU do your job and teach my child reading, writing, and arithmetic....and I will tell him about the dangers of smoking, as I always do, without the harsh graphics!!
