Stuff You Need to Know about Party Drugs

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. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online. (25 minutes)
