YOUR BODY ON DRUGSHow much does performance suffer when high?


To scientifically evaluate the impacts of heroin, meth, cocaine, and marijuana on the body, a team of medical experts challenges four drug addicts to physical and mental tasks (such as building a bookshelf) while high. Narrated by Robin Williams, medical explanations of the drugs' effects on muscles, movement, and the brain (illustrated by computer graphics) account for the addicts' performance on each task. Experts dispel myths about these four commonly used drugs, distinguishing between short-term benefits and long-term detriments resulting from abuse.
