Drugs and the Teenage Brain

This is a stand alone unit. Whilst it would help to have studied the core unit, it is not essential.

Lesson One: The Teenage Brain and addiction.

This lesson examines how the teenage brain is wired to seek pleasure and excitement which makes them more susceptible to addiction

Lesson Two: Cannabis Confusion

This lesson will examine the difference between medical and recreational cannabis, exploring the possible psychotic effects of the drug.

Lesson Three: Good Golly it’s Molly

This lesson will examine the physical and mental health dangers of MDMA (Molly or Ecstasy) before asking pupils to bring together their understanding from the unit to complete a task of their choosing.
