Drugs are very bad

Drugs and Domestic Violence coverDrugs and Domestic Violence
Jamiolkowski
1996

Direct from the teen nonfiction collection: another book examining another social ill. These series are everywhere and probably used by students to write that report about how “drugs are bad”. Obviously the facts are out of date and this series just looks old fashioned. I have noticed a decrease in the last few years of students asking about the “drugs are bad” reports. I also noticed that these books have not been circulating either. The only chuckle for me on these books are the photos used to illustrate. They remind me of a more modern version of the classic filmstrip used in my high school  health class. (Yes, I am that old.) Maybe the “drugs are bad” message is fading as a school assignment? Regardless it is outdated and it has low circulation.

Just Say NO to old drug books,
