Drug Lesson FREE! Drugs Are Bad: A 51-Slide PowerPoint and Anti-Drug Lesson


I hope this presentation and lesson will help the teens you work with see the dangers of Marijuana and other drugs!


At the end of my drug unit last semester on an anonymous survey I had students tell me I should make drugs seem more scary and dangerous; so, I created this PowerPoint.


This 51-slide presentation on the dangers of drugs can be shown to teens anytime, or anywhere. If you teach Health, it fits great into your drug unit.



NOTE: The PowerPoint does have graphic pictures so please be advised!


  • These drugs are included in the presentation: hallucinogens, Marijuana, Heroin, Methadone, Oxycodone, GHB, date rape drug, alcohol, Xanax, Diazepam, sleeping pills, inhalants, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and Ecstasy, Spice, Molly, K2, and Bath Salts. I put Marijuana first on the slideshow and discussed that it's often the gateway into these other drugs. In this way, the other severe, gross, dangerous, fatal effects that the later slides show can be Marijuana's ultimate effects too if it's the drug that led teens to those other drugs!


  • The focus for this lesson is that Marijuana is a sneaky drug that many teens feel is safe to use. While it is true that you don't hear of Marijuana overdose and it is legal in most states for medical use, (and many states for recreational use as well) Marijuana is addictive. It also causes "Amotivational Syndrome," where teens can begin to lose their motivation for school attendance, grades, sports or family. Marijuana is also dangerous as a gateway drug because it hooks kids in, and is often the first drug they use, having choosen to take that step across the line to using drugs.


  • PowerPoint slides teach about hallucinogens and Marijuana before the "Drugs are Bad" presentation.



This lesson is taken from both my - Full Semester/Year High School Health (#1 Selling Health Curriculum on TPT!) and my Middle/Junior High School Health Curriculum. (#1 Best Selling on TPT)
