Scientists Offer Myth Busting Insight
Many kids talk about what they know, or what they think they know about drugs. More often than not, parents and teachers are surprised by what their children learn. Much of what teens think they know comes from media bombardment glorifying drug use and dissemination of misinformation. That’s why the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) created this interactive quiz as a good starting point to help shatter these myths.
Interested in learning more or getting involved? On January 30 you can tune in to a day long live stream webcast (link will be live after 8 AM EST) where scientists answer students' most pressing questions about drugs. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #DrugFacts, by following us or @NIDAnews.
