I see a lot of drugs in college; however, I stay away from them...you should do the same. Trust me!
Heroin took my uncle's life & is about to take my sister's. I'm glad this exhibit exists because people need to know the dangers of drugs before it is too late & they submit to their addictions!

Drugs-the stuff is crap! Don't do it kids!
EXHIBIT WELL DONE!
Resist drugs! You can do it!
Great exhibit. Thanks!
IT KILLS WHY DO IT THEN?
I'm sorry I was scared but at the same time it was very educational.
Thanks for all the pamphlets!
You should have at least one night that this exhibit is free to the public considering the high drug use in Baltimore (and given that most drug users would probably otherwise not afford/choose to spend their money on coming here).
Great job!!! Drugs: Costs & Consequences and the DEA foundation has put together a real wake up call for everyone. Everyone that takes the tour will have a better understanding of the problems and work together to support our war on drugs. Education is the key to win
Love this drug exhibit. This is my first time to visit museum. Love it!
Drugs are bad for you so get off of them!
This drug exhibit was cool!
I hate drugs cause it is bad for you!
I pray for all the people suffering from addiction and for their families. I hope they are able to get the help they need.
This teaches people about drugs more than in school.
Drugs are bad & Osama bin Laden had drugs sent to us!
I am a strong hater of drugs. This exhibit has shown me the effects of drugs on one’s life and their family. It's disgusting what's happening!
The exhibit is a heart-wrenching, explicit view of what our cities, towns, and states have become. The viewing of the lost addicts & authority personnel is truly a sad but true reality of what this world is coming to all in the name of power, greed & control.
This is a very profound exhibit,it should be shown in every city and in small towns. Kudos to those that promoted this exhibit... extraordinary exhibit!
It told us a lot about drugs.
People shouldn't take drugs because it is a bad thing, many get arrested and it could kill you!
There needs to be more programs to help those who suffer the aftermath of drug abuse and the U.S. government needs to do more to secure its borders and commerce to stop these immigrants from smuggling drugs. The government can do something!
This is a sad and powerful exhibit. I hope people learn from these things and better their lives.
Drugs affect your eye sight, you can not think or drive good.
Drugs can affect your health, your job and people around you.
Drugs affect every area of your life!
The stuff about children and drugs is really something!
I wish that everyone in the world would not use drugs!

I learned to continue to say no to drugs!
se and you are sure to Lose!! Everything, including yourself.
I have seen, and personally have been affected by drugs my entire life growing up. My father was an addict and I cannot remember when drugs did not come first in his life. They still come first, I know that addiction is a disease but it ruined my childhood
I've seen this personally for too long. I work at a substance abuse facility here in Baltimore. The road to recovery is a long one. Many times you trip & fall, and sometimes you lose faith in yourself. Even after everything I see a patient go through, it
've always known never to associate myself with drugs/smoking... you only live once after all.
My dad use to smoke a lot, but he uses e-cigs. He stopped smoking after promising to me and my brother when we were young. Sometimes I feel like he's cheating.
Quite harrowing. I recommend it to anyone who knows anything about modern day America and/or drugs.
This exhibit really helped me to know some drugs are bad and some help you.
Just want to say this is fabulous! I'm a Science teacher & want to share more info!

Drugs are so ugly!

Great exhibit! I was greatly impacted by the stories about the teens getting interviewed. Thank you for making an exhibit on this!
In July 2010 we lost our son to a heroin OD. Never think it can’t happen to you!!!
Thanks for this exhibit it really makes you think and changes your thoughts about drugs, it changed mine. No drugs for me please, I am now scared. Keep this exhibit up, I feel like it has a really good impact! Thanks!
Drugs are something temporary. A five second feeling of relief, a year of being cool or rich. You may become addicted, which despite how juvenile it sounds, it is not good! Even if you do not care about yourself, you will harm others. So many die!
Never do drugs!!! They're not fun and will ruin your life!!!
What are you doing people!!!???
Drugs are bad! Do not do them!
I found this exhibit very insightful and different because it didn't just focus on drugs but prevention and treatment.
My brother died of a Heart Attack brought on by Alcohol.

Wonderful display. Thank you for bringing this to Baltimore!
