IDEA Scholars Share Their Stories at Shatter the Myths Anti-Drug Rally

On April 11, a dozen IDEA scholars joined 200 of their peers from around the city to uncover the myths about drug use and share stories of the effects that drugs have had on their lives and communities. 
 
The Shatter the Myths rally was held at the House of Sweden in Georgetown, in partnership with the Embassy of Sweden and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and Mentor Foundation USA. 
 
This is the eighth year that Shatter the Myths has come to DC, bringing a scientist to convey the actual effects of drugs on the teenage brain, and giving youth the opportunity to find their own voices to stand up to the threat of drugs.
