    Review:
    Party or designer drugs are the focus of much teenage substance abuse today. This video details seven of the most commonly used party drugs: Ecstasy, 2-CB, Rohypnol, GHB, Ketamine, Fry, and Psilocybin mushrooms. The drugs are detailed through the use of a Rave/party background with teenage actors and straightforward, no-nonsense information. Each drug is showcased with physical images of the drug, other street names given to it, its scientific name and ingredient, and what effects it has on the body. The presentation includes "What you might hear?" and "What they aren't telling you?" about each drug as a means of presenting teens with the facts. The video dispels the myth that these drugs are not as dangerous as other more well-known drugs by identifying effects such as permanent brain damage and death, and detailing how they are produced by incompetent dealers in underground labs. The phrase "Recognize it and avoid it" is repeated for each drug to help teens protect themselves. The video concludes with warnings to viewers: do not mix drugs, do not drive under the influence of these drugs, call 911 if someone loses consciousness, and report sexual assault as a result of someone slipping these drugs to females without their knowledge. The video's straightforward message assumes that teens are already faced with situations where these drugs are present, and must be made aware of their dangers in order to make informed decisions. It in no way promotes or glamorizes the use of these party drugs. This valuable resource is appropriate for drug prevention and education programs in middle and high schools.
