The bulk of this book is divided into 3 major sections: (1) teaching about drugs; (2) facts about drugs; and (3) supplementary reports which deal with legal aspects, prevention, drug use-student value correlations, motivation, etc. The section concerned with teaching about drugs provides concrete suggestions for elementary and secondary educators, as well as administrators. Much of the focus is on communication with youth. Facts are presented about marihuana, amphetamines, barbiturates, LSD, and heroin. In addition, there are discussions about drug dependence, one paper on pharmacologic therapy for narcotic-dependent persons, and a fact sheet on federal drug laws. Two shorter sections, which conclude the book, consider the use of films in drug abuse education and, in a somewhat different vein, discuss the essential components of an inservice drug education workshop. An annotated list of movies and a bibliography of selected references are included. (TL)
