THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Xian, People's Republic of China) ________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release June 25, 1998
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Last week's PRIDE survey showed that we are beginning to change the attitudes and behavior of our children, and that is a step in the right direction. Today's Pulse Check shows that the work of America's parents, teachers, and public officials is far from done. America's young people need to hear a single, unambiguous message: drugs are wrong and dangerous, and they can kill you. This survey also indicates that we must continue our efforts to toughen drug enforcement and to get hardened drug users off the street and into mandatory testing and treatment.
