#9153 Aimed at young people as well as teachers, counselors, and parents, this program explores the threat of party drugs in a nonjudgmental way, encouraging young people to make responsible choices. It looks at a range of popular party drugs – including alcohol, marijuana, ecstasy, amphetamines, and LSD – and contrasts their medical applications with their typical recreational uses and abuses.
Young users deliver frank testimonials about their experiences with party drugs, while a trained pharmacologist and educator describes likely effects, potential dangers, and some basic safety precautions. Questions concerning legal implications are also addressed.
