Emerging Drugs of Abuse

DVD, 2013, HRM, 20 minutes, Grades 7-College

This documentary shows viewers how underground labs profit by concocting new compounds that mimic the effects of legal drugs such as Spice/K2 (synthetic marijuana), bath salts (cocaine substitute), Kratom, Krokodile, Oxidado, and salvia (old but making a comeback), as well as new versions of dextromethorphan and crystal meth. Former users tell viewers just how dangerous these drugs are. The message is clear: anyone taking these or any new, unknown drugs is risking serious injury or death. Included with the program are a teacher’s resource book, fact sheets, pre/post tests, student worksheets, and more.
