Club Drugs: the Real Deal (cc)

While drug use among teenagers has leveled off in the last few years, a dangerous menace known as club drugs offers an even greater threat to today's teens. The names for these easy-to-come-by drugs include Ecstasy, GHB, methamphetamine, Rohypnol (the date rape drug), OxyContin and many others. The video provides teens with information on the dangers of these drugs (including death from overdose) as well as information on evaluating their choices at parties where adult supervision may be lacking. This program gives students a strong "no-use" message.

HOOKED: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way/Cocaine/LSD, Ecstasy and the Raves, v. 2

There has been a "drug culture" since the dawn of civilization. Sumerian cuneiform tablets from 3000 BC show a poppy harvest as do ancient Egyptian scripts and Greek statues adorned with poppy crowns. Far more recently, Freud sung the praises of cocaine that was included in the original recipe for Coca-Cola. But since the industrial revolution, drug use has changed dramatically society's response to this - particularly in America - has been to demonize users and make drugs illegal. HOOKED explores the world of illegal drugs, meeting with pharmacologists and scientists to learn exactly what effect they have on us and exploring the social and legislative changes that have transformed (and, some would argue, created) the drug culture of the 20th century. Outspoken advocates on both sides of the "war on drugs" illuminate this polarizing issue, and fascinating accounts and artifacts illustrate the role of drugs throughout history.

Uppers and Downers: the Facts About Stimulants and Depressants (cc)

Hard-hitting docudrama presents the facts and provides expert commentary on how abuse of stimulants and depressants harms the brain and the body. After introducing a real teen who thought harmless stimulants would help him pull an all-nighter, an expert talks about the biological impact of using stimulants including caffeine, ADHD prescription medicines Ritalin and Adderall, nicotine, amphetamines, cocaine, crack, and Ecstasy (MDMA). Discusses depressants, including alcohol, barbiturates and sleeping pills, tranquilizers, Rohypnol and GHB. Stresses the highly addictive nature of these drugs as the body's tolerance increases, thus requiring larger and larger doses to get the same effects. The cycle of uppers and downers is examined, as is the escalation from lower level drugs like caffeine, to more perilous drugs.
