New Directions Prevention Specialist Ginny Burley plays “Substance Jeopardy” with U-32 students at a World Food, Health & Wellness Event at the school October 21st. During that time High School students had the opportunity to participate in a variety of events from test tasting stations to yoga, ropes course, Turn Off Texting demonstrations, and more. At the New Directions station, students tested their knowledge about alcohol, opiates, cannabis and tobacco. While the students proved quite knowledgeable, a few gaps stood out: students underestimated the extent to which cannabis can be addictive; and they overestimated how many Vermont students had ever used marijuana. They guessed 90-100%, but the answer is 37%.
