Drug Prevention Message #3



Teens are often peer pressured into using drugs by their friends. As a result, Latinx youth are experiencing high rates of exposure and use of marijuana. In this video, you can see how much Alex's friends push for him to use, and when he keeps saying no, they attack his character by saying he is scared. However, his choice to remain firm and not use drugs, shows strength and courage.

If you, your peers, or your teen are in need of support, please reach out to Amy Barrios at 323-481-7575.
