Is Ex-ice Users Lecturing School Kids The Answer To Preventing Drug Use?

Australia has started to follow the United States’ lead on sending ex-ice users into schools in the hope they can have an impact on kids’ attitudes towards drug use and prevent use. Is this effective or does it have the unintended adverse effect of normalising drug use. Nicole Lee National Drug Research Institute Curtin University joined us on the show to discuss the effect of such programs with us. Universal school-based alcohol and other drug-education programs are delivered to all students, regardless of level of risk.
