Prison Me No Way - Jersey

Drugs Workshop

This workshop is run by the States of Jersey Prison Service and aims to teach students to :

  • To be able to recognise certain well known illegal drugs – know their names (including some slang names), know what they look like, their classification, how they are taken, and their effects both pleasant and harmful.

  • To understand that illegal drugs have different classifications dependent upon the harm they cause.

  • To understand the meaning of words and terms used in the Misuse of Drugs (Jersey) Law 1978.  

    The workshop is highly interactive, using worksheets and also a drugs kit so students can see what each drug looks like. This workshop continues to evolve as new drugs come on the market, in particular lately Legal Highs have been a key topic to cover within the session.
