YABA (methamphetamines) is the new kid's candy in Burma. Wrapped in pretty coloured paper and sold for the same price as a sweet, the methamphetamine trade inside Karen State has taken off. Drugs are the new guns for the Burmese Junta. "The only people not using the drug are babies and old people", said a well know Karen leader. DARE's goal is to prevent and reduce addiction to Yaba. To help young people understand drugs. To educate. To present alternatives. "A free mind cannot be destroyed" project reportread updates from the field
