Boy Scout leader, Bob Kenne, said, “We are on a mission to get the word out on the Truth About Drugs. Everyone deserves to know the effects of drugs before they make a decision about them. Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard said, ‘The single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs.’”

This is the fourth of such neighborhood clean-ups in the North Greenwood area. Volunteers have participated for hours on their weekend in an effort to improve the community.

The Truth About Drugs is a program to educate youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free. These materials have helped people around the world learn about the destructive side effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them.

The Church of Scientology sponsors this program to bring about a drug free society.
