Summary:
This powerful documentary-style video alerts viewers to the very grave dangers of GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate), a popular club drug with nicknames such as "Georgia Home Boy," or "Grievous Bodily Harm." GHB is an addictive sedative that is popular among teens who mistakenly assume that it is a safe drug, since it was once sold in stores as a food supplement. In fact, GHB was banned from legal sale in 1990, and in recent years has caused more overdoses and deaths than Ecstasy. Viewers learn that GHB, which is created in illegal and "dirty" labs, is a powerful depressant that is often used as a date rape drug. Odorless, tasteless and colorless, it can be slipped into drinks without detection. Video includes a jolting interview with Judi Clark, mother of 15 year-old Samantha Reid who died as a result of an overdose after drinking a soda laced with GHB. Viewers will hear important facts on how to avoid unintentionally consuming GHB and other club drugs. They will also gain a new insight into the damage that this life-threatening drug causes to the body, as well as learn the symptoms of GHB overdose and the importance of swift medical attention. Teacher's Resource Book includes a variety of student worksheets designed to continue your students' exploration of this dangerous drug.
