I don't know what red ribbon week is.
From the comments it seems like it's about drinking and drugs, which makes no sense since the red ribbon is the symbol for HIV/AIDS awareness.
It's really just a big joke to the drinkers and smokers. Not awkward at all, haha.
we only did that in elementary school....i would hope elementary schoolers wouldn't be drinking and doing drugs
We really don't give half a fuck, to be honest.
I have no clue what that is.. I'm guessing from the context though, that it's about saying no to drugs and alcohol.
Most of them actually find it fun.
Every anti drug message is a chance to deface something so that it has a pro drug message. (in my experience, anyway)
Negative votes but you're absolutely right. Every pothead in my school loves the above the influence symbol.
At high school it's a fat joke, we just had an anti-alcohol thing before junior prom.... really poor timing.
How is that poor timing? My school does the same thing before prom, to scare kids from driving drunk.
I don't know. I thought it was poor timing cuz like 1/5th of the class did E and almost everyone got hammered.
We stopped having Red Ribbon Week after Elementary school...
We didn't even get proper sex ed.
Clearly, I have a great school system.
We never had it at all.. and our sex ed consisted of showing us pictures of genital warts..
We were supposed to have sex ed as part of our 8th grade Family Consumer Science class, but we never "got to it."
We had it in elementary school, and they tried to keep it alive in middle school, but it's kind of a joke
yeah, its just kinda like whatev
Half of them are probably too high or wasted to know what's going on.
Yes, because teenagers who drink alcohol are wasted all the time.
