This DVD is middle school specific and addresses the misperceptions that studens have about "gateway" drugs. High school narrators lead middle school students through an engaging "pop quiz" format. Middle schoolers respond, giving narrators the opportunity to dispel myths, share truths, and encourage younger students to choose a drug-free lifestyle. Emergency room doctors, law enforcement officers, and drug-free high school students support the teen guides with the strong, positive message: When it comes to alcohol and drugs, the vast marjority of teens "don't need 'em, don't want 'em, and don't use 'em." (2003, 15 min.) DVD
