Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to resurrect the anti-drug program D.A.R.E, despite evidence that it’s ineffective.

While speaking at the D.A.R.E training conference in North Texas on Tuesday, Sessions defended the program as an effective way to prevent drug use among young adults, the New York Daily reports

“D.A.R.E. is, I think, as I indicated, the best remembered anti-drug program today,” Sessions said. “In recent years, people have not paid much attention to that message, but they are ready to hear it again.”

D.A.R.E. , which was founded in Los Angeles in 1983 and later criticized for its alleged failure to prevent young people from using drugs.

“D.A.R.E. does not work to reduce substance use. The program’s content, teaching methods, and use of uniformed police officers rather than teachers might each explain its weak evaluations,” the National Criminal Justice Reference Service said in a 1998 report to Congress.

Sessions countered that the program has provided effective results in schools nationwide. s

“We know it worked before and we can make it work again,” the AG said.
