In the Mix
No longer used just in clubs, ecstasy and other drugs like special K, LSD, GBH and crystal meth are finding their way into school and at home as their use grows among young teenagers who view them as 'harmless fun.' Teens in rehab talk candidly about their experiences with ecstasy and the devastating effects on their lives. We ride along with an undercover cop and an EMT, plus we interview Dr. Alan Leshner, director of NIDA, and a District Attorney. Co-hosted by Erika Christensen, the teen addict in the movie Traffic, this special raises awareness about club drugs by showing their dangers, defining the penalties and exposing misconceptions about them.
