I feel that this workshop was very realistic and filled with information. Some of the pictures were kind of graphic but besides that it was very good. I believe that most of my friends would enjoy this. Thank You.
I really learned a lot from this exhibit!
Great exibit... Very realistic...Had a ton of fun.
Very educational and eye-opening!!
Coke is bad.
I can only hope that a lot of young people see this. Drugs took away my youth. I now have over a year and a half clean from all mind and mood altering substances. It's all about eductaion. Keep coming back! Thank you for the reminder.
Very informative, great exhibit.
I love the exhibit.
I will not do drugs at all.
I don't like drugs.
Drugs are bad.
Pretty good exhibit.
This museum is fun.
I think that this is a very good exhibit because it teaches a lot of poeple what is bad for us, but al ot of poeple deicde to ignore this. Hopefully one day they will recongnize that this is wrong for them. Thanks for teaching us this.
I'm in love with your exhibit. I've been influenced by your exhibit, and i think you should continue having it because it is very nice and teaches people a very good lesson. Unfortunatley, this is the first time i've seen this exhibit.
I hate drugs. They made me lose a lot of family members. Hopefully everybody never uses them again.
This exhibit is really cool.
I do not like this discovery.
I want to know about drugs in the early 1980s.
This experience was a real shock to see how drugs are affecting our lives and society.
I had fun while I was here! Don't do drugs.
Drugs are bad for you.
Don't do drugs.
Do not use drugs. I mean it!!
Don't do drugs.
Do not do drugs.
Do not do drugs.
I like this place; I like the models of the motels.
I think that staying drug-free will be good.
My brother almost died in a car crash because of a poly-drug user. Let the madness end.
DON'T DO DRUGS! Don't be like Chris Farley!
I love how these things show all the dangers of drugs.
It was a great thing to learn and I will never in my life want to do drugs because i predict I will go to a Division 1 school in the future.
I think drugs can really mess your mind up and also kill brain cells, and I will never do drugs. I have better things for me in life.
I think that drugs are bad for you because they are bad for your lungs.
I think that drugs are bad because you can die from them.
I know that drugs can kill you. I want to give you guys some advice and say this: if you decide to take drugs, then i'll see your funeral. Please please please don't do drugs or you'll die. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. P.S. Good Luck
I realize how much drugs can hurt you even if you're careful with them.
I AM DRUG FREE AND THAT'S THE WAY TO BE!!
Great exhibit! We promise not to do drugs...team 8C!
Your exhibits really gave me a better insight on how drugs affect the youth. It also let me know how many drugs are being used in the United States today.
I want to learn about everything.
This place made me learn more about drugs. Thanks for the info.
I hate drugs.
Schools should be encouraged to use this exhibit for field trips instead of some of the non-sensical field trips they offer. This exhibit should be placed on CD'S and sent to all schools.
THIS PLACE IS AWESOME! IT HELPS PEOPLE REALIZE THE DANGERS IN OUR WORLD. EVERYONE SHOULD COME AND VISIT SO WE COULD SEE, & HELP PREVENT ALL OF THE DANGERS IN OUR ENVIROMENT. WE ALL HAVE A SAY IN OUR WORLD, AND I THINK THAT IT SHOULD BE A GOOD ONE.
Very interesting and informative.
Great informative exhibit!
This display is amazing; it should be on a world tour to show young adults and teenagers what can happen to you. And to show what your life would be like on drugs.
I like it because it is interactive and educatinal.
This exibit is good because it tells people not to do drugs;it also tells young kids not to do drugs.
I Love this place; it gives great facts about drugs and shows what happened to people who did drugs. I think other kids should come to this exhibit to learn more about the consequences of drugs!
Proud to be drug free!!!
After you have visited this exhibit, you will never want to have anything to do with drugs for the rest of your life. It really opened my eyes to the damaging effects that drugs have on the world.
I love your exhibit. Thank you for telling people drugs are bad for you and that they can kill you. Thanks for sharing!
Excellent exhibit, important information for everyone. Thank you for the literature.
Very interesting exhibit.
I had NO idea there were so many dugs in the world(or maybe i did but i didn't think about it). Its scary knowing that people die because of all of this.
The worst part about drugs isn't what happens to the users (even though it's sad). It's what happens to their families, especially when they have kids. Those kids didn't make the bad decisions and I was really moved by their tragic stories....Nice exhibit.
I have a daughter that was on drugs and managed to get her clean with your help. THANKS SO MUCH!
I think that this exhibit is very important to people that are having peer preasure at school.
I have seen what has happend to people that use drugs. My mother has always talked to me about peer pressure I said to her that I will always say no to drugs. Sometimes people don't know what they will say until the time arises.
I think that the most important thing to think about when you hear drugs is "not fitting in" and when people think they don't fit in they start doing what they think the cool kids do, drugs. In my opinion, you are cool if you be yourself and being yourself.
This is very interesting.
I really liked the sets/props with the sound. It really felt like you were in the room. Interesting place. :)
Pizza is good. Birthdays are good. Drugs are bad. Don't do drugs.
I like science.
I like this ehibit very much!! And I enjoyed it! It was very educational and it gave me a lot of information!
I don't do drugs. I hate them! I live with people that do drugs and I want them to stop. Well yea g2g bye.
Well, based on movies that we've seen in school, drugs can cause really bad horrible lives for the user. Doing drugs doesn't make you cool or nothing; it's just dumb! You know what else is dumb? Selling and stealing them! You can go to jail! So DON'T DO DRUGS.
Well, I don't like the fact that people use drugs. There is no reason for it. Well, we are doing projects to try to prevent it.
Great exhibit-really intresting displays.
Don't do dope and you could succeed in anything you set your HEART AND MIND TO. From a kid's point of veiw if you have dreams don't let drugs become a part of them; they will come true!!!!
Amazing exhibit! This impacted my child greatly – I'm so happy to have brought him here.
I like the exhibit.
I had fun today. The exhibits were extraordinarily interesting. I can't wait to come back!
I adore this place.
Drugs are bad; it's a common fact.
Great displays with tons of information.
I DONT DO DRUGS!!
This exhibit is a wonderful thing for kids like me.
Thank you for educating the public that addiction is a brain disease, not a moral dilemma. I would have liked to have seen alcohol in the exhibit, as I believe that alcohol is also a drug.
Thank you for including treatment, the message of hope, in your presentation. Recovery from addiction is possible and is the greatest weapon against abuse. The therapeutic value of one addict helping another is without parallel.
I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU THAT YOU SHOULD STAY DRUG FREE BECAUSE THAT WOULD MAKE A BETTER COUNTRY. SO HANG TOUGH AND STAY DRUG FREE. WELL, THAT'S ALL I WANTED TO STAY.
This exhibit was interesting but really sad. I thought that the pictures with the kids was really sad!
This exhibit was really sad. Drugs are bad and now I officially pledge to never try them EVER.
This exibit is sweeeet. Good job, fellas!
Don't do drugs. Be cool or you will be too cool for school.
This exhibit was really just wonderful.
This was very interesting and seeing this now convinces me never to do drugs, and if I did I would go against every one I love and against my own gut.
This exihibt has made me realize how much any drug, no matter the amount or size, will change your life forever. I don't think that 15 minutes of feeling unstoppable is worth a life time of paying for it. I just hope my generation can realize that.
PEOPLE SHOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE DOING DRUGS. IF YOU WANT TO KILL YOURSELF, JUST GRAB A GUN AND DO IT FASTER.
I think people who use drugs are dumb. I would never do that. I like the way this museum explains how bad it is.
I am drug free.
People need to reaaly be aware of the cost of doing drugs, not only to themselves but to their family, friends and future. I watched someone I cared about destroy his life with drugs and there was nothing I could do. It's not wroth the price.
This place is such a great place; there's so much to know about the harmfulness of drugs! What a learning experience.
Drugs deteriorate the brain!
I LIKED THE STORIES OF THE FORMER DRUG ADDICTS. AND YOU DON'T EVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ME TAKING DRUGS.
GOD IS THE ONLY CURE TO ALL THIS MADNESS IN THIS WORLD. DRUGS KILL, WHILE GOD HEALS.
I don't like drugs.
I LOVE THIS PLACE; IT IS SO COOL. IT IS A SCIENTIFIC LEARNING EXPERIENCE!
THE STUFF IS OK. THE ONLY THING IS THE GUNS.
I PROMISE TO STAY DRUG FREE.
I didn't know that drugs could be hidden in so many compartments of a car. It was pretty interesting.
This exhibit was super cool!!!!
I learned a lot from this exhibit.
I love it!
DRUGS ARE BAD.
DRUGS ARE BAD.
DRUGS ARE BAD.
I think it is a good exhibit. It's very informative. However, I think it is a shame that all of this craziness and nonsense is happening around the world. To me, the worst thing is that the people using these drugs are exposing their children.
I think that it's really horrible that these things are going on and happening all over the world. I believe that everyone should pitch in and try to make everything that is happening stop because this is really sad that people are doing these this.
I have learned the different ways drugs can effect the way a person feels and act to other people. I also leaned that life is a gift, and there are many people trying to take life away from you; all you have to do is stay motivated.
This stuff was really good and the thing I like about is that they made the stuff very well.
Drugs play a dangerous role in our lives! It is time for a change! As a former drug (Marijuana) user, I know how it feels to be left out of important things in life. I missed job appointments, family gatherings, and living the life that I used to.
I would like to learn as much as I can since I have young children.
This exhibit helps me understand more about America.
My experiences today are enlightening as well as inspirational. It opened my eyes to things I did not know and gave me more insight on prior knowledge. It was very, extremely helpful with my research paper. I really enjoyed this exhibit.
The exhibit was very helpful with my research paper.
This exhibit was very informative and helpful. Some of those cases were just sad.
I loved this exhibit! I learned a whole lot. THANK YOU!
This exhibit rocks!! I'm staying drug free.
This exhibit has truly opened my eyes to the horror of drugs and the how they so cruelly affect people, such as children who have no control in choosing their fate when it comes to drugs.
What a powerful and eye-opening exhibit. Everyone should see it.
I NEVER KNEW DRUGS AFFECTED THE BRAIN THIS BADLY. I NEVER KNEW OF THE HAVOC DRUGS BRING ON THIS WORLD. THANK GOD I'M OUT OF THIS GAME OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION.
I am glad you have these exhibits; it's so fun I learned a lot!
This place is so awesome and wicked! I love to come here and just have fun looking at all the exhibits and learning more and more. Thank you for this awesome place to come and visit.
This is a wonderful place to visit and every time I come here I learn something new and it's just so amazing.
This is the greatest place on Earth. I've learned so much in one day. I've learned more here than I've learned at school.
This place is so cool I want to come here every year.
Nice exhibit but needs more stuff about drugs and what happens to drug addicts. Otherwise, good work with the drugs and pamphlets.
This was a good experience for me to see. I feel seeing this will help others in the world to stop and think about what they do. I think this will help America be a drug free world.
I wish that people would stop using drugs. People are dying over drugs. It's very sad.
I really don't know how drugs can harm people but I am learning.
This is an awesome exhibit! I love this exhibit.
This stuff is cool! Rock on, dude.
I really learned some cool stuff.
DEA is the best in the world and I mean it.
This exhibit was interesting, and I learned things that I didn't know.
Drove from Milwaukee to see this. Thanks. Keep it up.
This exhibit is extraordinary. I started crying during it. Very effective. If this doesn't make a difference for anyone, I'll be amazed.
This is excellent. Please keep it here.
I think this is wonderful. Please allow this to stay!!
It's horrible how much of the world's drugs come from Chicago. It was very interesting learning about the perils of drugs.
This was kind a scary. But it's good to be educated. My mom always says that I should NEVER take drugs. And I won't.
Hi, I like this exhibit very much. I like looking at the guns; it really made me think about all the drugs and how they affect us. Well, I will not take drugs in the future because now I know they're bad for you.
Too often I see kids who are drug involved, tempted by peer pressure or just think using drugs is cool. It's the possibility that just trying it could be the worst decision of his/her life that scares me the most. I don't want to see my students (or anyone) make a decision that could be the last one.
Too many of my friends have died due to alcohol or drugs. Whether they did them or not, they are gone and are missed.
My sister is a recovering drug addict. After years of telling myself and everyone that I would never do drugs, I started smoking pot last year. I've been drug-free for three weeks now.
This exhibit is eye opening. I hope more teens come here to see the reality of drugs. Thank you.
This exhibit is incredible. We were given a tour and it was most informative. My two daughters just said, "We'll never take drugs!" I can only hope and pray that will be the case. Exhibits like this that tell "it like it is" will make a big difference.
This was all right; I already knew everything.
The life of a person who abuses substances is a sick and fatal one. My choice is drug-free – 86 days without any substances. I have a choice and I am maintaining one day at a time.
Clean and sober one day at a time. Thank God for change, saving my life.
Recovering one day at a time. Truly grateful. Thanks for the vivid pictures.
I'm a recovering heroin addict (2 months sober today!). I'm going to school to be a drug counselor. This exhibit gives me chills due to the reality of it.
We as a school had red ribbon week, and today we came here to see the exhibit. I think you guys did a wonderful job showing kids (high school age) how dangerous it really is.
It was a good exhibit.
It is devastating to see the affects of some of these substances. I would not put it on the hands of dealers because of the addictive nature of people. It would be nice to see more treatment of this human condition. If there is no demand, there is no supply.
I found the exhibit to be riveting; I learned a lot.
The museum was a good experience.
This exhibit in the museum was very good. It made kids think twice about doing any kind of drugs.
Great exhibit! Hope as many people can see this exhibit! Thank you!
I'm a nursing student. This exhibit is very useful, informative, and a learning experience, not only for me but for everyone. Thank you.
Last week was Drug Free Week at my son's school. This exhibit was a wonderful learning experience for the whole family. Thanks!
I liked it.
THIS IS AWESOME; I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH MY BRAIN HURTS.
VERY GOOD EXHIBIT. I LEARNED A LOT.
I THINK THAT THIS EXHIBIT WAS A VERY INTERESTING ONE. THEY HAD MANY INTERESING FACTS ABOUTS DRUGS AND THE THINGS THAT THEY CAN DO TO YOU. BEFORE I START ANY, I WILL THINK TWICE.
This is Awesome! and soo soo soo soo real.
I LIKED THE EXHIBIT, ESPECIALLY THE PARTS ABOUT THE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT.
I am so happy I got to see this exhibit because I am recently a crackhead from the projects who had all the wrong turns in life. I've almost done everything you can think of and trust me it's not fun at all. You feel as if your life is over when you become addicted.
It was a rude awakening. Thank you.
I really like this place; I'm actually learning something!
This exhibit is an exhibit to remember. I have really learned a lot about drugs. Thank you.
You guys did a wonderful job on this exhibit. You are facing a tough challenge but let's keep at it. Education is the best prevention. Good luck!
I know my uncle was a crack addict. He used to always yell and look paranoid, and one day he was supposed to go to the store around the corner and come back home. He did, but when he was coming back, he passed our house like 50 times. I'm like, please let me out of the car; I'll walk. But that's what crack does to you. After that, he got into a situation and now nobody knows if he's missing or dead. So please, people, whatever you do, don't do drugs. You don't want your picture in this exhibit do you? I don't!
Drugs = death
I really really liked this exhibit. It was really cool!!!
I can't believe famous Judy Garland used drugs.
ALTHOUGH THERE WAS SOME INFORMATION ON PRODUCTION OF DRUGS, WE WISH THAT THE EXHIBIT HAD MADE THE ACTUAL CONNECTION BETWEEN DRUGS AND TERRORISM INSTEAD OF JUST SHOWING PICTURES SIDE BY SIDE. IF THERE WAS NO PROHIBITION WOULD THE TERRORISTS STILL BE PROFITING?
Enjoyed; very educational. Too much political content.
I had fun. I was talking, walking, etc.
I enjoyed the exhibit. It was very enlightening. It really allows you to see every angle affected by drug abuse, from the small child to the small child picking crops. Very well done.
I think that the exhibit is really great!!!!!!!!!!!!
I like the exhibit and the stuff it teaches you.
Thank you for teaching me about drugs!
I teach Health in high school and I feel that this information is necessary for our youth to see and experience. They are experimenting with peers and have no idea what they may find themselves addicted to or the kind of danger they may later become exposed to.
I am a new volunteer here, and finding this exhibit is exciting to me. I work with teens during the summer and I will get in touch with as many as possible to encourage them to come to this exhibit. Thank you.
Don't be a fool, stay in school!!! But for real, though, stay off the crack, people; you don't want your picture in this exhibit just because you wanted to get an 8 Ball. Stop trying to fit in.
This exhibit showed me not to take drugs and how poor of a choice it would be. I have been pressured many times to do drugs or alcohol, and I have said no and this exhibit showed me that I made the right choice!
I am coming off a six-month relapse after an 18 month term of sobriety from alcohol. This exhibit is truly an “eye-opener” for me as I've always felt invincible when I use; I am not. My abuse not only affects me but society as well. I was excited to come and was extremely satisfied with the depth of information.
This is a great educational piece of information for the world to see, especially the young people. They need to really understand that drugs kill.
THIS IS A GREAT EXHIBIT FOR ALL PEOPLE TO SEE. THANKS FOR MAKING IT POSSIBLE.
I am currently in a treatment facility and I truly appreciate this exhibit. This is a very serious epidemic in the U.S. and today's kids and teens need to know the effects and causes drugs have on humans and society. Thank you.
We brought high school health students to the exhibit. We were very impressed. A must see exhibit for students.
Excellent information - too bad more students and adults haven't had the opportunity to view this exhibit - drugs, driving, money laundering, consequences of actions, etc., a huge awakening for teens who think they are invincible. Thank you.
As the district U-46 Safe and Drug Free Schools Coordinator, I find that the reality of the exhibit is enormous. If it just reaches a few to change their lives, it's worth it.
Very informative. Appreciate for high school age students. A must see.
There were some good things and some bad things but it was cool.
Very well put together. Not only does the exhibit focus on the negative impact drugs have on people and society, but also about treatment and recovery.
Cool place. Nice job.
We really enjoyed this exhibit. We learned a lot. Thanks.
This place was one of the best places I have ever visited in my life.
I really liked this exhibit. My friend and I learned a lot more here than we learn in health class at school. The different kinds of stories were very touching, and helped me realize that drugs may seem cool to some they are really not.
I enjoyed this exhibit very much. It was a great way to open my eyes about drugs. What really got me was the drug lab at the hotel.
A truly informative exhibit. Good presentation, interesting for older children and adults. Thank you for offering it.
Very interesting and informative exhibit!
Been, Done That, Have the T-Shirt.
This is the very best exhibit I have ever seen. Very and I mean very informative; this may save some lives!
My first roommate had a minor drug addiction to pot that I didn't know about when I moved in. For five years I tried to help. I watched as the problem grew from pot to coke. She always claimed she had it “under control.” Last I heard she dropped out of school, lost her job, and got kicked out of her apartment. She did NOT have it under control. Please say NO to drugsÑitÕs just not worth it.
I like the museum.
This is a good museum and I learned many things and would like to come back.
It was very good! Now I know more why not to do drugs.
hi dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i hate drugs! but this is a great exhibit! later dudes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great displays. Lots of information and photos, very informative.
I would bring all of my friends to this. Very educational. Great exhibit. MAKE THIS PERMANENT!
This is a great exhibit!! Very real. Would bring any of my friends to this or come back any time.
We enjoyed this exhibit and learned a lot. Thank you for a job well done. Officer from Oak Park Police Department
I am a former drug user but now I'm in the Women's Treatment Center getting myself some help. Thank God that he chose me because I don't think I would have lasted too long using drugs. Mentally I canÕt handle them because I get so depressed, and I can't be screwed up like that because I have kids that I love so much and I'm going to take care of my kids. I just had a baby three weeks ago. God, please continue to bless me and all the sick and suffering addicts. Cure us all, Lord. Amen.
Brought youth from Valentine Boys and Girls Club for drug awareness.
I thought that this exhibit was very interesting because I learned a lot. Security Officer Troy Steward was great! He gave us a tour of Drugs: Costs & Consequences.
I AM THE TORCH CLUB AND EDUCAIONAL INSTRUCTOR FOR THE VALENTINE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB IN CHICAGO. TODAY I BROUGHT A GROUP OF YOUTH FROM OUR TORCH CLUB TO VEIW THE EXIBIT AS A FOLLOWUP TO OUR DRUG AWARNESS PROGRAM THAT WE RAN AT OUR CLUB.
The exhibit was informative and more information should be given to the public regarding this exhibit.
A must for all to visit.
I really like your drug exhibit; it was very powerful and can really open people's eyes on what drugs can really do to you even the first time you try them.
This exhibit is very good to teach teenagers and kids like me what are the harmful affects of drugs and alcohol. Do you know that 20 percent of 8th graders and juniors in high school do drugs or drink alcohol!!! That is really bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very interesting interactive displays!
This program should be aired on TV and supplied to public schools. Very Good.
I learned that even celebrities take drugs!
This museum is great; we had a wonderful time and lots of fun =) maybe we'll come back. We hope so. Tschuess Goodbye Au revoir
Hi. I am a student from Peterson School and I am here visiting for a field trip, and I am having a good time. Thank you.
Drug abuse is not the answer to stress management, nor is it the key to solving problems; It's a cop out.
Really interesting presentation.
It was great; we had so much fun.
THIS MUSEUM IS COOL. I LIKE IT AND I WANT TO COME BACK SOME DAY.
This exhibit was nothing I thought it would be. It was better!! But the most important thing I learned about was methamphetamine (meth) and how it changes your life and body. WOW!!
This exhibit was a waste of money, but there were some things that I did like in it. I thought it would have been bigger, but I still liked it.
I can relate to the people smoking week because I know some people who have done it and even CONTINUED.
We learned a lot about drugs.
We learned how people store drugs in their cars.
This exhibit was great! I learned how drugs affect you.
Please help save my community. Thank You.
Coming from a recovering addict, I was very impressed!
Excellent exhibit! I direct a treatment center in Alaska.
The exibit was cool, but there was not a lot to do!!!
I SMOKED,DRANK,AND DID COKE. I QUIT IN 1979 AND NEVER CAME BACK TO THEM. THE HARDEST TO QUIT WAS SMOKING CIG'S.
Drugs arereally bad. DONT do them.
This is a wonderful exhibit; keep up the good work. I learned a lot of things I didn't know about drugs and the impact they have on many young lives.
Excellent information...to bring awareness to the danger of illegal drugs. Where they are made and devastation caused to our country. Hopefully people will think about this and go back to their community and get involved in preventing drug use/addiction.
Don't do drugs because it will mess up your brain. So stop taking drugs!
I think this exhibit is great. I really think CPS should require every child 4th grade through 12th grade to see this exhibit. Since the children are the future they need to see reality. I think you should bring in some recovering addicts to talk about the...
uhhhhh.....dont do drugs. stay in school. you aint too cool.
THANK YOU. YOU HELPED A RECOVERING ADDICT.
I'm a grateful, recovering addict in the NA program and being at this exhibit has been a very scary reminder of what I have waiting for me if I go back to using. Thank you all for this wonderful experience.
This is a great exhibit. CPS should require all students 4th grade and up to see it. Also, I think you should have some recovering addicts (young) here to tell their story to the guests. Recovering addicts who have survived death the hard way. Show our future (the children, young adults) not to do this.
23 months, 6 days clean. This was a real eye opener. Will tell other recovering addicts to come and see.
I was completely moved by the exhibit. I'm thinking about now joining a local police department and fight the war on drugs!!
I thought this was very enlightening but also very sad. It seems things are getting worse, not better.
This is good for everybody in society to become more informed about the facts, the reality and danger. Due to lack of information and education, moral principals suffer.
VERY EMOTIONAL, EXCELLENT DISPLAY
This is very good exhibit, new from my day as a child coming here.
The whole thing was very intereting but a little scary. The kids really got to me, though.
I WORK THE THE FIELD DRUG ADDICTION AND HAVE FOR YEARS. THIS IS BOTH AN EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITION, BUT ALSO ONE THAT HOPEFULLY FOSTER OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTH AND THE FAMILY MEMBERS THAT LOVE THEM TO HAVE BRUTALLY HONEST DIALOGUES ABOUT DRUGS.
IN OPPOSITION TO EARLIER COMMENTS, I THINK NOW THAT IT'S FINALLY STARTING TO SINK INTO PEOPLE'S HEADS! THAT NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, DRUGS AND ITS' MANY FACTIONS CAN AFFECT YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE.
Very informative. Wished the exhibit was offered in all cities and towns across the country. It's needed.
Huge eye opener. Educate, educate, educate! Need more programs like this. Great idea.
I work in the field. We cannot educate enough. Good exhibition. One suggestion: staff with people who have been there; theyÑthey want to give back.
Hey, the story of addiction: good stuff. Thanks!
Really opened my eyes to the world of drugs and life in general. Thanks.
I would be interested in seeing more about harm reduction methods--such as methadone, needle exchange programs, etc.
I really appreciate this; it opens my eyes to a lot of things, and I've had family members dealing with these struggles. Thanks.
This is one of the best exhibit you have here.
I believe that drugs are a force to stop us from where we want to go. Everyone has something that they want to do and the usage of drugs is the obstacle. I don't do drugs. Why? Because I refuse to become the stereotype in today's society.
The Drugs: Costs & Consequences exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry was an eye-opening experience! I was impressed with how thorough the information was presented! I look forward to bringing my students in October!
This exhibit is really nice; I really like the theme because it has history of old police equipment and today's police equipment.
I really enjoyed your exhibit.
Don't do drugs.
Keep up the struggle for America's youth. Thanks!
THIS IS VERY GOOD INFORMATION; I WAS IN SHOCK TO KNOW THIS.
Very Well Done!
I think this is a good exhibit to show children and adults alike what drug use is in this country.
THE WHITE MAN HAS TRAFFICKED ENOUGH DRUGS INTO AMERICA. I AM TIRED OF SEEING PEOPLE ADDICTED TO NASTY DRUGS. IT'S TIME FOR A REVOLUTION AND SAY NO TO DRUGS!
Drugs are for thugs.
Hugs not drugs
This exhibit is very impressive because it shows what damage drugs cause.
Avoid taking drugs; it ruins you!!!
We both learned a lot from your wonderful exhibit! Thank you so much!
This museum is so much fun; I want to come again next year.
Eye opening exhibit, very informative.
This exhibit was very important to see. The guide provided gave extra insight on exactly what I was looking at. I wish all inner city youth could come and visit this exhibit.
Don't get high...you'll act like a total dork.
THIS INFORMATION THAT WAS PRESENTED HERE WAS VERY INTERESTING AND I FEEL THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WILL ENLIGHTEN MANY GENERATIONS TO COME. I FEEL THAT THEY NEED TO PRESENT SOME OF THIS INFORMATION IN SCHOOLS.
I work in an outpatient drug program. I have had three clients die from drug use during the past year. Intervention works. This exhibit is well done.
I am a high school senior and have seen a lot of drugs at school. I know what the consequences are of taking drugs, and because of that I have not tried drugs. This exhibit just reinforced what I have learned. Thanks for making this exhibit available to all of us!
My boyfriend does pot and I hate it!
I knew a girl in Springfield, IL who did drugs and had issues with booze; I was in love with her. I watched her destroy herself and family members. She recovered but it was like watching her fall in love with demons. If it was not for the drugs, I probably would have married her. She was sweet and caring. When drugs took over, she turned into a different person.
It's very nice that everything is in one place. This drug collection is good for kids to see. We came from Hungary for holiday. Best wishes.
I am 20 months clean from a heroin addiction that nearly killed me. Thank you for this exhibit.
This exhibit is a little more than biased. There is much left to be explained on all of the subjects.
Never do drugs. Does it sound fun to be slamming into walls after shooting up? How about shaking uncontrollably wanting to itch your skin off and vomiting all night because of heroin? Didn't think so.
Very nice. Everyone should bring their family to this exhibit.
My father works for DEA and we are very proud of all of his accomplishments.
This exhibit was excellent, well put, lots of info.
The exhibit brought a lot of insight to how drugs are made, where they are made, and how they affect our everyday lives. The exhibit where there is a room set up with a baby's crib really reminded me of the people I've seen on the street and how they may live in these conditions. I am myself a victim of drug usage (weed) and have managed to stop here and there but never completely. I am very blessed to have resisted the pressure of trying Ecstasy/Crack and to be raised in a drug-free home by drug-free parents. Love you Momma! Daddy!
Keep up with this exhibition. Great education to my son and his friend.
I LOVE THIS MUSEUM!
I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT. THANK YOU.
A lot of informational value and content.
My dad is a DEA agent and helped make this. Woo-Hoo!
Wonderful excibit. I used it to teach my son.
I am an employee here; drugs destroyed the people around, many cousins and friends down in college. I miss them deeply; I dedicated this exhibit to family and friends I lost over the years to drugs. People my age and younger should know the side effects.
Well done, chaps.
Coolest anit-drug exhibit I've ever seen. Very powerful.
I tried drugs and I didn't have the problems you speak of.
I think this exhibit is great; I wish it was out when I was in school. I see a lot of people come through this exhibit and totally miss the message of what the DEA is trying say.
Thank you for telling us about drugs. My friend BOBBY and I, PAUL, pledge that we will not put any dangerous stuff in our body. My friend's grandfather died when he was 44 because he drank a lot of alcohol.
Very interesting, especially the mock meth lab.
This was fun.
I have a sister that has used drugs. She overdosed on heroin and had year old twins in the house, my six year old sister, and my three year old son. She is now a full-fledged drug addict, has been evicted from her apartment, always broke, children basically taking care of themselves. She has abandoned her children; my mother is raising the kids now but the kids have problems, anger and theft, and don't want to go to school and some week smoking. She has also brought two other children into this world, 18 months and 7 months, with drugs in their systems, and now they have special needs. When will this epidemic ever end?
I love this museum! hi.
I really enjoyed this exhibit. It was better then any health class I had. It was a really cool experience.
This exhibit was very enlighting for me. I knew people who participated in the drug scene, and I never realized until now how they played a part in the lives of the people they sold drugs to. I'm also saddened by the effects of drugs on families.
I love this place...it is so much fun to be at.
People should be arrested if found with any kind of drug with at least a short amount of time because everyone knows drugs are bad for u.
CIGARETTES SHOULD BE ILLEGAL
Excellent exhibit. I believe that every person should come and see this and witness the effects that drugs have on people and children!!
I have seen a lot of drug abuse raised here. My grandfather, father, uncle, and aunt were using some form of drugs (alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine). I have had students come into class high on marijuana and one showing symptoms of crack cocaine use; it's sad to say he's dead now. Drugs = Stupidity Drugs = Sorrow Drugs = Pain Drugs = Death
I learned a lot of stuff at this exhibit.
Like drugs are not good and stuff. Like alcohol is ok every now and then but not drugs.
Very enlightening, and chilling at points. I think that this is a very worth while exhibit.
Drugs are dangerous. So people take drugs and it makes them sick.
I WORK IN THE DRUG ADDICTION FIELD AND IT REALLY IS GOOD TO SEE THE EXHIBIT BECAUSE PEOPLE CAN BE EDUCATED ON THE EFFECTS OF DRUG ABUSE NOT JUST ON THE BODY AND BRAIN BUT HOW IT AFFECTS FAMILIES AND ESPECIALLY CHILDREN.
This exhibit was fantasmagorical it; was truly a fascinating educational experience. It made an impact on my view of the nation and the world. I would much recommend this splendid exhibit to young teenagers who are facing troubles with peers trying to force.
The exhibit was wonderful and told me a lot about what I didn't know about drugs and what they can do to your body. Thank for making it.
I am an employee here and I really enjoyed myself here because this was the first time that I viewed this exhibit.
Museum is excellent.
Real information about effects and the lives of users and sellers was sparse at best. The heavy and morphing bias of those involved in putting this exhibit together missed on thier goal to inform. Instead they have created a message based on fear and gene.
I thought this place had a lot of good information to have.
I thought this place was cool. It needs more interactive displays.
Looking at everything made me learn a lot.
Thanks for helping to educate.
WOW this place is pretty cool. I mean It's fun; you can get lost, though, but it is awsome other wise well bye!!!
Interesting and informative. Could be more interactive.
I really enjoyed the state that i am in and the museum is the best loves t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
Real informative stuff. Pretty interesting. Anyone can learn something new here.
Very informative educational.
This Exhibit was very eye opening for me. What ever you think you know will go out the window when you see this great, so amazing exhibit.
Wow, I had no idea how drugs came to the US!
WAS A GOOD EXPERIENCE TO BE ON THIS PLACE.
I love your program!
I wish this was around when I was a kid. It could have changed so many lives. I hope every school kid in Chicago sees this.
Thank you for bringing this exhibit here - hopefully it will open the eyes of young kids and there will be fewer drug related deaths.
The exhibit was amazing! As a teacher for the deaf I am concerned about the drug abuse that takes place in the deaf community. It's a huge problem! The community lacks resources and information.
Our son, Jay Balchunas, was a DEA Task Force Officer who was killed in the line of duty 11-05-04 in Milwaukee, WI. Thank you for bringing this exhibit to Chicago. It is an important step in the war against drugs.
