A major source of self-influence for adolescents is their access to accurate knowledge and their ability to identify and correct common misconceptions. The purpose of this activity plan is to clarify common student misperceptions concerning alcohol, cannabis, and pharmaceutical products and to provide them with a greater understanding of the risks. The risks addressed include injury, longer-term health problems, and coming into conflict with the law. This will be accomplished through students’ participation in a “game show” where teams compete with each other to come up with the correct response to a series of questions on the risks associated with the use of alcohol, cannabis, and other drugs.
