The Top Ten Myths About Alcohol and Drugs (cc)


Too many teens are either ignorant about the dangers of drugs or are in denial about the hazards they pose. This program, with its clever use of satire, graphics and mock pop quizzes, captivates student attention as well as educates. The following myths are exposed and exploded: Everybody’s doing it; I can stop when I feel like it; Beer isn’t as bad as hard liquor; I can get high and still be in control; I can drive a car high on marijuana; Marijuana isn’t harmful or addictive; Prescription drugs can’t hurt me because they’re legal; Drugs help relieve stress; Drugs and alcohol do not damage the brain; and Steroids do not damage the body. Each of these dangerous and destructive myths is rebutted with cold, hard facts, challenging students to recognize harmful behaviors in themselves and others and to take full responsibility for their personal health and safety.
The scratchy film technique gives the edginess of an old documentary.
