A friend of mine shared this on my newsfeed today and I thought it would a nice idea to repost it here for the Nod Squad.

We are all fully aware of our drug use and with that awareness comes the responsibility towards ourselves and each other to educate about harm reduction, because sometimes sobriety genuinely is not an option and I know that’s true for myself as well as many of you.

So yeah, I won’t harp on harm reduction too often, but I care about you guys.

If You Think You’re Too Poor to Go to College

I highly recommend looking into early college programs. I’m in one right now and everything is completely free, and saves you so much time. My family has not had to pay for my tuition, has not had to pay for my books, has not had to pay for absolutely anything, and all I had to do was maintain an unweighted GPA of 3.0 and get my requirements done. I’m saying this because when I actually looked at the people who are in the program, I realized a lot of them came from wealthy families and I think that that’s really awful considering they can pay for college and a lot of teens out there seriously don’t think they will be able to get an adequate education. By the end of the program, I will have graduated high school and received my A.A. degree at the same time.

 So seriously, if you need financial help for your education and you are still in high school please please please look at the early college program. With both that and the possibility of a scholarship, it saves you so much time and money and gets you so far without making you pay a cent.

(edit: also! I’m not sure if this is just the college I go to, but we also get transportation with our student I.D. card! So look into that too if you have parents that cant/wont drive you)


About a point shot of some decent dope…
