Today is the first day of National Drug Facts Week (NDFW) 2014. This is the week when NIDA aims to shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse. Communities across the country will host events throughout the week to educate teens about the dangers of drug abuse and addiction.

As part of NDFW, we encourage teens to test their knowledge on drug facts and addiction by taking the 2014 National Drug IQ Challenge. This interactive quiz is a great way for teens to get the factual answers to questions about drugs.

To get the word out, we’ve started a Thunderclap! A Thunderclap posts a message simultaneously to the Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr accounts of everyone that signs up to receive it. That means that all of the accounts’ followers see the message. A Thunderclap can reach thousands of people at once—pretty powerful stuff!

Join our NDFW Thunderclap before Wednesday, January 29 at 1 p.m. EST and a message promoting the 2014 National Drug IQ Challenge will go out to all of your social media followers at that time. We need at least 250 supporters for our message to be shared.

Help us SHATTER THE MYTHS about drugs!
