Ever younger children are being recruited by aggressive County Lines Gangs, motivated by money, and using force, the threat of violence, and sexual exploitation to intimidate children to work for them. In July 2021, it was reported that: 27,000 children in England had been victims of County Lines Gangs (drug dealers spreading beyond major cities). ages 15 ~ 17 are the most commonly targetted groups... ...but children as young as 7 have been recruited. Drugs: The Dark Side provides information on the dangers of drugs presented in a format suited to teenagers and their parents. Our objective is to make walking away from drugs more fashionable.
