The lessons included in the curriculum are: (1) What is your opinion about the use of illegal drugs? (2) How serious is the drug problem at Jackson Middle School? (3) What can you learn from newspapers about the national drug problem? (4) How serious is the national drug problem? (5) What makes a good rule?
