Educational Summaries 1, 2, and 3: A Summary for Parents and Students on the Subject of Teenage Drug Abuse, Stop the 'Street Market' Suppliers, and Diseases and Disorders That May Result from Drug Abuse.
Contained are three brochures designed to provide understandable information on the drugs, narcotics, and chemicals that are being most frequently abused. They also portray the illegal "street market," and how the user will look, act, and be harmed as a result of drug use. The first brochure summarizes some characteristics and effects of stimulants, depressants, and hallucinogens. It is directed primarily toward parents. The second considers how drugs get into the hands of youths and who makes the huge profits from their ultimate sale. Particular reference is to heroin, hashish, marijuana, LSD, barbiturates, and amphetamines. Temporary and permanent injuries from the abuse of drugs is highlighted in the third pamphlet. Diseases and disorders are outlined, including a section on contaminated needles and drugs. Each brochure employs cartoon illustrations, diagrams, and short narrative material to present its point. Common drug terms are frequently used. (BL)
