National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week 
March 21st-March 25th, 2022 

Shatter the myths about drug and alcohol use.

Myth: Alcohol is safer than other drugs. 
Fact: Alcohol kills 6.5 times more youth than all other illegal drugs combined. 

Myth: I can drink and still be in control. 
Fact: Drinking impairs your judgment, the teenage brain is still developing, which impacts decision making, judgment and effective thinking. 

Myth: Marijuana isn’t addictive. 
Fact: Around 1 in 11 people who use marijuana could become addicted. 

Myth: Smokeless tobacco does not cause cancer. 
Fact: Smokeless tobacco (such as chewing tobacco and snuff) increases the risk of cancer, especially oral cancers. 

Myth: Prescription pills are safe because they came from a doctor. 
Fact: When misused or taken without a doctor’s prescription, these drugs can be just as harmful as illegal street drugs.
