Cannabis Resources on BBC

Anti-legalisation video
The BBC’s Learning Zone has a range of resources which include some on cannabis.

They have video clips which illustrate the arguments for and against legalising cannabis, the issues around use and abuse of the drug.

They give a number of ideas about how the clips can be used in the classroom – to set up a debate on the legal position of the drug, or:

as a trigger for a discussion about the reasons why people choose to break the law and smoke cannabis. Use in conjunction with other user testimonies. Compare and contrast with the social and emotional problems presented in the clip. See this BBC link for further information http://www.bbc.co.uk/switch/surgery/advice/drink_drugs/cannabis/.
