After they sign they can get a ribbon. The week is designed to bring awareness to the growing problem of drug use among high schoolers. It began after Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena of Calexico, who had been working undercover in Mexico, was kidnapped, tortured and killed in 1985 by leaders of Mexican drug cartel members.
