The stress was put on marijuana, being the most often the entrance door to the other drugs.This was an interactive lecture with the participation of some soldiers for demonstrations.

The lecture ended by a Questions/Answers Time that was used to clarify some points about the drugs.

All the attendees received the booklet The Truth About Drugs and were asked to be Ambassadors and forward the drug prevention message to their relatives, friends and around them, complying with the UNODC: Let’s Develop our lives, our communities, our identities Without Drugs.
