|GET THE WORD ON DRUGS FROM THE
A lot of people who use and sell drugs end up in jail.
Visit a local jail and interview the warden to find out how many inmates are there because of drugs. What questions would you ask? We've given you ones to start with, and you can do the rest. Write down your questions in the spaces below.
Then visit a local treatment center, and compare what you found at the jail. What questions would you want to ask the people there? Again, we've given you the questions to start with.
Create a skit about what you've learned. Ask your teacher for permission to let your fellow classmates act it out in a role play. Be sure to highlight the similarities and differences in the ways that drug users are treated at the two facilities.
