|MARIJUANA Its the most popular illegal drug among teens, and, perhaps the most dangerousbecause it clearly is the "gateway" drug. Our experts and ex-addicts attest to it. Listen to their stories of addiction and amotivational syndrome. Mike and Christy stopped going to school and even started to hear voices. No matter how hard they tried, they couldnt stop smoking it. This program will open eyes to understanding the dangers of this so-called "natural high." Students will walk away with a clear message that there is nothing safe about this highly addictive and debilitating drug.||COCAINE Its one of the most popular drugs among the younger generation, yet it stops so many of their lives. There is a fine line between you and your dreams, and when its the fine white line of Cocaine, it adds about a million miles. Michael, Michelle and Sarah tell how that seductive white line altered the course of their lives and those around them. Suicide, jail and heartbreak replaced their bold dreams of youth. Fortunately, there is hope for each of them, as they struggle through recovery.|
|INHALANTS Kids no longer just sniff glue; they try everything from bug spray to household cleaners, and it is the second biggest method of getting high for teenagers. Wade was six days away from his 13th birthday and it was just before Christmas when he decided to do some "Glading" with his older brother. He died a few hours from "Sudden Sniffing Death Syndrome". This is a gripping story of how his father, a doctor, tried to revive him, and how much they now miss him. What seemed to Wade like "no big deal" cost him his life.||CRACK As the saying goes, "Step on a crack, break your mothers back". Smoke it and it will bring you to your knees. Tracey and Beadi found out that heroin may kill you but crack will leave you homeless and destitute, willing to do anything to get it. Both were trying to escape pain, and the addiction cost them their dignity, their families and nearly their lives. They are fighting their way back through recovery, and their stories will leave students with the truth about the destruction of this most addicting of drugs.|
|SPEED AmphetaminesSpeedthe drug often made in your neighbors garage, is the third most abused drug among teens. Its like the runaway bus with a mad driver and a bomb that is ready to explode at any moment. Learn how speed kills dreams, grades, families and lives. Haley and Steve have been there. She got shot in the head. He died and was brought back to life in the emergency room. Students will hear first hand how quickly a fun high will ruin your life. Believe the signs Speed Kills! And not everyone gets a second chance.||LSD-ACID It was popular in the sixties and now its back stronger than ever as the fourth most abused drug in America. LSD- "Acid" is easy to pick up at "rave" parties and teens are trying it every day. But Andrea and Tristan found out the hard way that by "moving up" to acid, their dreams quickly turned into nightmares. And for some, a "bad trip" becomes a nightmare that never goes away, leaving the user with paranoia, "perma-fry" (brain damage), and even a trip to prison.|
|SHROOMS-ECSTASY This is the first of two videos on Hallucinogens, the other being LSD/Acid. What is real and what is not? Ecstasy and psychedelic mushrooms"Shrooms" alter perception and chemically play with our minds. Lanai, Samantha and Dale explain the agony behind the ecstasy.
