Pothead tells the fictional story of Trevor, a teen becoming gradually addicted to marijuana as his grades slip, his relationships with his parents and friends become strained, and his motivation to do things other than smoking marijuana diminishes.
As Trevor’s downward spiral plays out, the program weaves in interviews with real teens who were potheads, but managed to turn their lives around. Their stories provide a thought-provoking counterpoint to Trevor’s story, underscoring the message that addicted teens can change their lives for the better.
Includes Resource Guide.
