Video Description

"In the Mix is the Emmy award winning PBS documentary series for teens

No longer just used in clubs, ecstasy and other drugs like special K, LSD, GHB and Crystal Meth are finding their way into schools and homes as their use grows among young teenagers who view them as ""harmless fun."" Teens in rehab talk candidly about their common experiences with ecstasy and the devastating effects it had on their lives. We ride along with an undercover cop and teen EMTs, and we speak with Dr. Alan Leshner, director of NIDA, and a District Attorney. Co-hosted by Erika Christensen, the teen addict in the movie Traffic, this special raises awareness about club drugs by showing their dangers, defining the penalties and exposing misconceptions.
