A nice addition to any library.

von AnchorageSchools (Veröffentlicht von WorldCat-Nutzern/innen 2009-06-09) Gut Permalink

     Good material for debate. Recommended for teachers and students from 8th grades and beyond. It is also a good source of material for parents to talk to their kids about drugs.
