The B.L.A.S.T. program stands for Building Leadership for Action in Schools Today. Blast was revamped version of the D.A.R.E. program from grade 6. Even though it was like the dare program it was way better and I learned more in those 2-3hours then I did in 3 days from dare. Jack did how to show you the tobacco companies are tricking you to buy and or use their products. When he showed use the can of tobacco chew and on the sticker it said “warning not a save alternative to smoking” we didn’t think much about it since it was mandatory. Then he showed us what happened when you open up the can, then it suddenly says “a safe alternative to smoking” because the top of the sticker has been is aligned from the bottom portion. Some other things he showed use like the magazine and how hey but 2 pages so when you fold one page over just to read it the colours of a cigarette show on the folded over portion. When he showed us some of the gum sticks that have wrapper that look like a cigarette and you have to get it off to chew the gum! The only thing I think is a fluke the gum wrapper opening how it’s like a cigarette I think that’s farfetched. The thing I found the most useful was when one of the ladies pulled out some of the chemicals that go into cigarettes so they burn better or mask the taste of other chemicals that were put in.
