PC Crawford led a very informative workshop about drugs and their effects with P7R. They looked at the definition of a drug:
“A drug is a substance other than food that can change how your body works, how you think , feel or behave.”
They explored 4 categories of drugs: over the counter medicines, prescribed drugs, socially acceptable drugs (caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes) and controlled illegal drugs. They discussed stimulants, depressants and hallucinogenic drugs, examining who was qualified to be handling drugs. PC Crawford explained the penalties for possession and supply of class A, B and C drugs.
P7R were amazing at asking questions.
