This website, produced by the University of Utah shows how some common drugs work with a twist. The activity, geared towards students, takes place in a laboratory, or more specifically, a funky machine next to a cage of mice. The activity opens with a party scene. There is music and mice who appear to be partying and appear to be using either marijuana, LSD, methamphetamine, alcohol, ecstasy, or heroine. The intro then cuts to a dark lab with a machine. The lights turn on, the camera zooms out, and you see a cage full of mice, (all showing outward signs of the drug they've taken) a lab worker, and a machine. The user has to direct the hand of the lab worker to pick up a mouse, and place it in an armchair suspended in the cage by a robotic arm attached to the machine next to the cage. After a mouse is in the chair, it is moved to the machine (it is amazing the mouse is not injured during the movement). Then the user is educated about the drug the mouse has taken, after 4-5 slides, the mouse is returned to the cage to be exchanged by another. One good point of the site is that it does not go too overboard on how bad drugs are for someone, (YES, I KNOW THEY ARE) the site just informs you.
Have fun with it:
Very truly yours,
