If the drugs are legal and even minors can buy them, they must be safe, right? That deadly myth, common among today’s teenagers, is the target of this informative program that personalizes its anti-abuse message by focusing on three real teens: Traci, who abused laxatives and diuretics to lose weight; Karl, in prison for committing armed robbery under the influence of cough syrup and Dramamine; and Jennifer, dead after drinking cough syrup. The disc includes a 53-page pdf guide with reproducible fact sheets, activity sheets, and other teaching aids. Grades 7–12. Color. 22 minutes. Human Relations Media. ©2005.
