How does drug abuse begin?

After defining the difference between a drug and a medicine, students worked with data from an experiment on self-adminstration of drugs in rats.  Moving forward students read a case study comparing two individuals and were asked who was addicted to drugs.  We wrapped up class by watching a clip from National Geographic Explorer "A Heroin Addict Speaks."And in case you still had any notions that drugs will increase your popularity / appearance or give you any other benefits, click the picture below to link to a gallery of the faces of meth.
