Welcome to San Francisco where there's no religion allowed in school, unless it's... Scientology?
Via Fark (how else would I find out about this stuff?)

A collection of bad ideas on a clandestine path: Narcanon, Scientology, and third grade drug awareness...
Narcanon stresses Scientology’s (non-medical) idea that the human body stores toxins in fat. According to Scientology, the toxins in the fat stores continue to contribute to the body’s need for an addictive substance. Toxins therefore must be “sweated out” of the body by sitting in a sauna and by taking niacin.
That’s the upshot of Narcanon’s Scientology message to students between grades 3 and 12. I don’t really have a problem with teaching children about drug abuse in school, providing it reinforces the lessons taught by parents. I don’t know about you, but when I talk to my kids about drugs, I don’t say anything about toxic fat stores, do you?
I teach my kids that anything you do to damage your body is a bad idea because you only get one. It's your job to take care of it. Put another way, I could say, “Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If any one destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and that temple you are.” [1st Corinthians 3:16-17] Yes, I could put it that way, just not at my son’s elementary school...
