No problem in society is more pressing than drugs, and in no segment of society is the drug menace more deeply felt than among young people. This pamphlet describes various law-related education (LRE) curricula and resources developed to help schools fight drugs. Law-related education is well suited to deal with the drug menace because it does not stress abstract concepts, but but deals, instead, with the world as it is. The curricula described stress the realities of peer pressure and other factors that drive youngsters to drugs, while showing the consequences of drug use and providing means of resisting drugs and the pressures to use them. Title, grade level, a short description of the contents, cost, and ordering information are provided for four guides to curriculum, 13 curriculum guides, two teacher education and training resources, 13 videotapes, and two computer software programs.
