 Simplifying A Complex Subject  
News For Your Classroom Discussion

Using Twitter we simplify current scientific news reports and studies
about drugs, drug abuse and prevention on our twitter news page.
These 140 character tweets are available below with their links.

Several times per month we will provide you with these drug fact
updates as an audio podcast, blog and email which will be available on  
as a FREE service.

When you log on to this page you can view our  tweets that we call drug
fact updates. Use these real articles and studies as topics of discussion
for your classroom, advisors' group, mentors' activities, health class,
debate, homeroom, science, biology, human development, psychology,
home school discussions, family conversations, faculty meetings, etc.
On our homepage you can subscribe to itunes, podbean, twitter and our
blog sites to have it sent directly to your email box or your ipod.

In addition to these free subscriptions, an MP3 player will be available
on this page next to the tweets. All you need to do is click on the green
bar and listen to get your news for discussions in your classroom.
