Drug-Free Marshals 1st Up at Spring Training Baseball Game

Drug Free Marshals
Here is a cool news item that I've been meaning to post about since I first saw it.

The Drug Free Marshals is a program to help kids stay off drugs. The idea is to use peer pressure to keep kids off drugs rather than the usual scenario of the peer pressure persuading them to take drugs. The program has been running since 1993 when it was created by the Church of Scientology. In the 15 years since it has signed up 4 million Marshals.

The program was recently featured at a Spring Training Baseball Game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies.
