Thanks to rapid technology transfer, online lessons such as webinars are available to anyone who has access to the World Wide Web.
American pedagogues use this in their own benefit by providing informative virtual sessions aimed at fighting drug abuse in schools.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintain an updated YRBSS that is used to assess the current impairment of substance abuse in schools.
Of the six categories of health behaviors observed by the CDC, the system has a significant amount of data on the use of alcohol and other drugs in the US – factors that are among the leading causes of death and disability among young people and adults.
Like the newest CDC Study on the behavior of youth risks – Report on data and trends summarization: 2007-2017 explains: "In 2017, 14% of high school students who have ever used selected drugs have identified them as cocaine, inhalants, heroin, methamphetamines, hallucinogens or ecstasy."
Thus, from the age of 14 to 18, young students in 2017 were exposed to class A drugs.
Today this question persists.

To combat this concept and try to channel drug and alcohol temptation away from young students, the US Department of Education has developed webinars for teachers and specialized training staff who want to support students and families affected by crisis.
In the past, web seminars include topics like The Opioid Crisis and K-12 Schools: Helping Students in School, Implement school diversion programs and PHearing and Elimination of the use of electronic cigarettes for young people: the role of drug therapies,
Alternatively, if you ever skip future live webinars, the system stores useful video and audio files that you can watch or share with others.
As this year approves the National Drug and Alcohol Week (NDAFW), January 22-27 is expected to raise awareness of this crisis by informing the public that not only high school students are affected.
Since students are 12 years old, perhaps even younger, exposed to Class A drugs, this is so conclusive educate tomorrow's leaders about the dangers these substances can cause.
