you
1:31
when you have a headache you take this
1:34
when you have an upset stomach
1:36
you take that when you’re tired you take
1:39
this they seem clean and safe they come
1:43
by way of an authority that we generally
1:45
trust kids are socialized into taking
1:48
these drugs they see everybody taken
1:50
from their parents their grandparents
1:52
their baby sister when you take a drug
1:55
something gets fixed it’s in every
1:58
magazine it’s on television every single
2:00
day they’re there they’re in all our
2:03
houses how can they possibly hurt you
2:05
everybody takes it and that is the
2:08
fallacy with kids taking prescription
2:10
drugs when used properly prescription
2:13
drugs are perfectly legal and helpful
2:16
way to treat illnesses and injuries
2:17
that’s because the doctor orders a
2:19
prescription drug based on a patient’s
2:21
needs and medical history to treat a
2:23
particular illness or condition but many
2:26
prescription drugs are powerful
2:27
substances that can have other effects
2:29
on the body many of which can be
2:31
dangerous
2:39
there’s been an increase or explosion of
2:43
new synthetic drugs the synthetic drugs
2:47
are still very new we’re still learning
2:49
about it literally every day the newer
2:52
drugs that I see kids doing between 14
2:56
and 18 will think we’re looking at some
2:58
fake pot it’s synthetic marijuana k2
3:01
spice base things of that nature what
3:03
you see with the emerging drugs is is
3:05
that they’re just throwing everything
3:06
into the pot without any regulation
3:10
whatsoever and we have no idea what they
3:12
are how they affect the body how they
3:13
affect the body long term or even even
3:16
short term for that matter they’re so
3:17
new when I first started smoking oh yeah
3:24
yeah it was a great feeling I loved it
3:27
it makes chemical changes in the brain
3:29
it physically changes the brain my
3:31
attention span was real bad but I was
3:34
just basically out of it we found that
3:36
long-term marijuana users did show IQ
3:39
decline but the effect was concentrated
3:41
among those who began using marijuana as
3:43
adolescents which suggests that there’s
3:45
something very specific about the
3:47
adolescent brain and how marijuana is
3:49
affecting it I am addicted to marijuana
3:52
addiction is definitely a brain disease
3:59
the first time is absolutely
4:01
irresistible absolutely irresistible you
4:04
know you take that first hit and you’re
4:10
not in control whatsoever you might
4:14
think you are you might think he got it
4:16
under control but you’re not I overdosed
4:19
seven times over the course of five
4:21
years if I kept doing heroin I’d
4:23
probably be dead right now I would have
4:26
overdosed or I would have committed
4:28
suicide you’re playing with life and
4:30
death when you pick up the first one
4:34
that’s all that’s all there is to say
4:37
you are you’re playing with your life
4:39
when you’re sticking a needle in your
4:40
arm and they told me it was gonna be
4:44
it’s exactly the same exact high as weed
4:47
when I first smoked spice I was
4:50
extremely high and extremely sick I
4:53
started getting really real bad anxiety
4:56
over it just a little shaking pain in
4:58
the upper chest sick I worked to where I
5:00
had to sit down and and Indesit the rest
5:04
I just sat pretty much on a buddy’s
5:06
couch and I didn’t want to move I didn’t
5:09
want to talk to anybody I got really
5:10
quiet sometimes you feel like you’re
5:13
gonna die ballot measures in three
5:21
western states ask voters if they want
5:23
to legalize marijuana possession is now
5:27
legal in Washington state recreational
5:31
pot anything less than an ounce no
5:33
longer illegal in Washington state as of
5:37
midnight Washington state’s new law
5:38
makes it legal for adults to possess up
5:41
to one ounce of marijuana
5:44
according to a recent survey less than
5:46
half of people ages 12 to 17 think that
5:49
pot is harmful such views have been
5:51
influenced by a growing trend to
5:53
legalize the use of marijuana
5:55
wheat is okay yeah marijuana cigarettes
5:59
are much more addictive but how safe is
6:01
marijuana
6:05
I have had suicidal thoughts kids need
6:13
to understand that they’re basically
6:14
playing Russian roulette with their
6:16
brain very addictive very quickly
6:18
addictive it is extremely dangerous I
6:22
just can’t imagine that anyone would
6:24
take these drugs if they just googled it
6:26
and found out how many people had killed
6:28
themselves you know there’s always
6:31
something about that phone call that
6:32
comes in the middle of the night that
6:33
you know something’s wrong it’s like
6:36
being in a coma model it’s like you’re
6:37
turning into a vegetable you can’t do
6:39
anything you are deteriorating it’s like
6:40
you’re dying
6:42
[Music]
6:48
[Music]
6:51
people would approach me in school and
6:54
just hand me medication that they found
6:56
in their parents medicine cabinet I had
6:58
no idea what oxycontin was I had heard
7:00
that it got you high so I asked him if I
7:06
could buy a couple of them I was pulling
7:09
up to multi-million dollar homes and
7:11
buying oxy cotton I tried not to
7:12
consider myself a drug addict when I was
7:15
using I was just sliding I didn’t even
7:17
like know that term I didn’t understand
7:20
the word junkie and just knew I liked to
7:22
get messed up I got to the point where I
7:25
was doing six to eight eighty milligram
7:28
pills of oxycontin a day it makes me a
7:30
different person when I’m on drugs they
7:32
really tore my life apart
7:40
[Music]
7:43
the use of snuff or chewing tobacco
7:46
dates back to one BC today smokeless
7:49
tobacco is growing in popularity due to
7:51
the false belief that it is safer than
7:53
cigarettes
7:54
today’s smokeless spit tobacco contains
7:57
over 2,000 chemicals oral de Vaca
7:59
products contain 28 cancer-causing
8:01
agents people who consume eight to ten
8:04
dips or chews per day receive the same
8:06
amount of nicotine as a heavy smoker who
8:08
smokes 30 to 40 cigarettes a day
8:11
75% of daily users of smokeless tobacco
8:13
will get leukoplakia oral lesions that
8:17
appear as white patches on the cheeks
8:18
gums or tongue for smokeless tobacco
8:21
users the risk of cancer to the cheek
8:23
and gum is nearly 50 times greater than
8:26
non-users
8:27
[Music]
8:29
I was a type of drug addict I could not
8:33
go a day I could not go a second without
8:36
my drugs they say you can’t be addicted
8:39
to it but I’ve had some days and it was
8:44
just like I needed marijuana for me to
8:46
function it well I didn’t even think of
8:49
drugs is addictive I just thought they
8:51
were just something you did I didn’t
8:53
know it was you my life was gonna depend
8:55
on it I feel very strongly that
8:58
addiction is a brain disease
9:00
I think there’s ample evidence
9:02
compelling evidence that there are
9:05
profound changes that occur in the
9:08
brains of people who are addicted to
9:10
certain substances acetone a chemical
9:16
used in paint thinner is dangerous if
9:18
inhaled it can cause irritation to the
9:20
skin eyes and respiratory system
9:23
pesticides contain toxic chemicals such
9:26
as cyanide that kill insects and other
9:28
pests arsenic used to be a key
9:32
ingredient in rat poison benzene is an
9:35
additive in gasoline its use has been
9:38
restricted because of its potential harm
9:39
to humans carbon monoxide is a colorless
9:43
odorless gas in automobile exhaust that
9:46
can be harmful and even fatal have
9:48
inhaled ammonia is the key ingredient in
9:52
many cleaning fluids it is irritating to
9:54
the skin and harmful to lungs all these
9:57
substances can be found in a single
9:59
commercial product consumed by millions
10:01
of people tobacco
10:10
he was 16 years old it was the first day
10:16
of summer first time Scottie drinks
10:19
let’s do it why not nobody thought about
10:24
the consequences the truth is that
10:26
drinking games are really about getting
10:27
drunk and that drunk is about people
10:30
getting hurt thinking of it as a game as
10:33
a positive activity when there’s all of
10:34
these negative ramifications or negative
10:36
consequences there’s such peer pressure
10:38
come on take another one take another
10:39
one take another one he did six why
10:42
can’t you do seven or I did ten you know
10:44
can you do 12 your inhibitions are lower
10:46
so you’re more likely to do things that
10:48
you wouldn’t normally do Falls are
10:50
common drownings for common unintended
10:52
pregnancy is a big consequence sexual
10:54
assault by that time it’s gone too far
10:57
and either they wind up in emergency
10:58
room or or worse
11:01
I just didn’t it’s drink like that
11:06
I miss him
11:13
I woke up in a hospital bed strapped
11:22
down on life-support with no hair it all
11:25
got burnt off because women generally
11:30
have smaller size and smaller blood
11:32
volume the amount of alcohol is diluted
11:37
less my mother drinking had caused me to
11:43
have a birth defect I found out I had
11:46
fetal calm when I was I was diagnosed at
11:48
12 years old for about an hour and hour
11:53
and a half and then finally the
11:56
ambulance came out here to get way
12:07
you’re juicy this first one you do it
12:10
put your self restaurantes a drink to
12:15
experiment and offer to relieve stress
12:18
there’s always a reason to do it I’m
12:20
stressed I like enhancers they say it
12:25
goes from school like this oh well
12:27
they’re doing it it seems okay but then
12:28
they like okay morning I could justify
12:32
using Norco enjoy myself and other
12:35
things I drink every weekend always said
12:42
I wouldn’t take it to the farthest
12:44
morning but I don’t think I’ll get it
12:50
tasted they looked at any temperature
12:53
you went from occasional to a vast array
13:06
of different ingredients that aren’t
13:07
energy drinks including sugars such as
13:09
fructose and sucrose different B
13:12
vitamins taurine is an essential amino
13:14
acid is actually the most abundant amino
13:16
acid in animals and in the human body
13:19
just like any other amino acid taurine
13:22
is used to sort of help drive multiple
13:24
different metabolic processes throughout
13:26
the body amino acids and the vitamins
13:28
are things that you would get in a
13:30
well-balanced diet you don’t need any
13:32
extra in an energy drink in order to be
13:34
healthy many of the products contain
13:35
herbs they’re touted for their health
13:39
benefits but there’s not evidence to
13:41
suggest there really are any people
13:42
believe it but there’s not evidence for
13:44
that all things herbal and all things
13:46
natural are not necessarily good cocaine
13:50
or the coca plant tobacco all these
13:53
things the poppy that that from which
13:56
heroin is made all these things are
13:58
natural not good however
14:02
just ten minutes before midnight Shawn
14:04
had called us and was just happy new
14:05
year and it was only 13 minutes later
14:09
that this crash happened she came to the
14:16
air she basically had nothing no skull
14:19
from the forehead back her brains in her
14:22
skull were actually on the trauma room
14:24
floor as he was putting me into the car
14:27
my parents had gotten there so the first
14:29
thing that they saw was you know their
14:31
sony getting pushed into a police car
14:33
you know with the handcuffs behind his
14:35
back I ran off the road into a park hit
14:39
a concrete bent on the passenger side
14:42
and tree myself so as a final result
14:48
died
14:55
[Music]
15:02
this alcohol is harmless fact alcohol is
15:06
a dangerous drug that causes 100,000
15:09
deaths in the United States myth you can
15:12
tell by looking at people if they’re
15:13
drunk or not in fact some people act
15:16
normal even when they’re drunk
15:18
never get in the car with someone who’s
15:19
been drinking alcohol even if the person
15:22
seems fine now it’s okay to drink as
15:25
long as you’re at home back when people
15:28
drink alcohol the risk of accidents
15:30
violence fires and other problems sky
15:32
rocks and these problems can happen
15:34
anywhere even at home there are lots of
15:36
myths about alcohol who is that I see
15:51
hang on Wendy whoa thanks uncle Weis
16:00
what were you doing my friend Larry said
16:04
hanging upside down was cool just
16:07
because someone tells you something is
16:09
cool doesn’t mean you should do it
16:11
but Larry is my best friend he’s the
16:15
coolest owl in school there are lots of
16:18
ways to be cool but doing something
16:21
dangerous isn’t one of them then how can
16:24
I be cool
16:26
from up here I see lots of ways
16:29
take a look
16:32
[Music]
16:40
[Music]
16:45
yep doing things that are good for you
16:48
is cool but how do I know if something
16:51
is good for me
16:53
great question let’s find out the answer
17:02
hi I’m here
17:05
let’s just say we know each other from
17:07
school you can’t see me but I’m right
17:11
here hiding behind me I know you’re
17:20
reading this are you there access to all
17:21
everyone everyone thinks you’re a loser
17:24
because Facebook or email text or phone
17:28
what is left everyone thinks injury your
17:31
mom is such a close
17:35
[Music]
17:40
this is a book that I made about a year
17:43
after she died I invited all of her
17:46
friends and we wrote things like what
17:48
they would have said if they had a
17:49
chance to say to her she was known for
17:52
being smiling and kind and happy pretty
17:56
much that’s how she was up until junior
17:58
high school something started to change
18:01
about her and I couldn’t put my finger
18:03
on what it was
18:05
Jeffery was just a normal kid with a big
18:10
loving family and wonderful teachers the
18:13
big plans for the future at the end of
18:18
ninth grade we took a vacation as a
18:20
family and just had a wonderful time but
18:24
after we came back Jeff seemed almost
18:28
depressed something happens to kids if
18:32
they’re repeatedly tormented where they
18:34
kind of begin to feel like they are less
18:37
socially important they become more
18:40
isolated they become depressed they
18:42
become more alone they really begin to
18:45
lose any hope that they are part of what
18:47
other kids have which is social value
18:53
each night something happened to one or
18:57
two other kids
18:59
they’re always told you have to do what
19:02
they say when they say it how they want
19:03
it two of the kids grabbed me pulled me
19:07
in the other room there’s about 40 kids
19:08
and they’re just waiting for me I was
19:15
afraid they would just opened my mouth
19:16
and dump it down my throat and I would
19:18
have no choice and I said no the word
19:23
hazing doesn’t do any justice to what
19:26
has gone on now it’s more of sexual
19:29
abuse harassment assault physical and
19:32
mental people that you’re bullying you
19:47
kind of forget that they’re people you
19:50
only see them as a way to get a laugh
19:53
bullying is for me was making somebody
19:55
believe that they were lower than dirt
19:57
if I said something about somebody I
19:59
wanted to see them cry never once in
20:02
that whole week of the name-calling did
20:05
it crossed my mind that her feelings
20:07
were being hurt
20:18
kids get bullied every day that’s just
20:22
the way it is sure schools have policies
20:26
my school has a policy
20:29
yeah that’s worked out real well I am
20:33
NOT a bully and I’m not a victim or
20:36
target or whatever they call kids who
20:37
get bullied
20:38
I know I should probably do something
20:40
break it up but really it’s none of my
20:42
business
20:46
I was making fun of people because they
20:49
weren’t as cool as me and they didn’t
20:52
wear the same stuff as I did and I just
20:55
went with a peer pressure and I just
20:56
started being mean and saying these many
20:58
things I remember thinking to myself wow
21:03
I really reached a new low I don’t want
21:07
to go into the classrooms and see people
21:09
whispering about me and see people
21:11
talking about me and hear people
21:12
laughing sometimes people do lonely
21:15
people without even realizing it bullies
21:18
come in all sizes shapes and colors
21:21
they could be guys or girls some bullies
21:24
know they’re bullies but others don’t
