For years you have heard
about the health and safety issues associated with drug and alcohol
use. Parents, teachers, Public Service Announcements (PSAs), and
even friends all have something to say.
What do you remember most?
What sticks in your head at the moment of decision?
What kind of lesson would you create if you were in charge of educating
others about the health and safety issues associated with drug and
alcohol use? What would you say? Why? How would you share any concerns
that you had with friends? Siblings?
Students, now is your chance
Please email ideas, hints, tips, suggestions, even lesson plans

-- Age (if you are a student)? (optional)
-- Are you a teacher, student, parent, or ...? (required)
