CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Because of its enormous reach and capacity to affect behavior, home video has become increasingly essential in public campaigns. It has aided beneficial advances such as the battle against HIV/AIDS, gender bias, poverty, and racism, and now it is critical to harness the full potential of the same medium to teach teenagers about drug usage and drug trafficking. There is compelling evidence that well-planned home video campaigns can reduce drug abuse by correcting misleading perceptions about normative drug abuse.

The current trends of youth indiscipline are so concerning that various military and civilian governments have sought strategies to address the issues.

The researcher aims to investigate home videos as a possible remedy to drug misuse as a result of this. Home video messages have a significant impact on society, and youths play an important role in establishing popularly approved spaces. The rapid and easy flow of information and education is ensured by home video. Some home video systems play music and videos that promote social issues such as alcohol, drug, and sex misuse. Drug misuse and other unhealthy habits have played a role in the recent spate of tragic situations in which kids have become highly violent and out of control.

Drugs, gambling, internet use, and chocolate all alter the brain, according to home video.

Wrestlers, boxers, and other athletes and bodybuilders may use anabolic steroids to gain muscle mass. Drug misuse has an impact on society and adolescents in certain respects because drug abuse can have major health repercussions at any age, but kids who abuse drugs are more vulnerable to negative outcomes. Drug-abusing teenagers are more likely to develop an addiction later in life and suffer lasting and irreparable brain damage. Other harmful consequences of drug misuse include:

1. Emotional Issues: Drug misuse can cause or disguise emotional issues such as anxiety, despair, mood swings, and suicide thoughts. Unfortunately, drug addiction can exacerbate these emotional issues. Teenagers who use marijuana on a weekly basis, for example, have a twofold increased risk of despair and anxiety.

2. Behavioural Issues: Adolescents who use drugs are more likely to have social problems, depression, suicidal thoughts, and violence. According to a recent poll by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, kids who do not abuse drugs are more likely to participate in delinquent behaviors such as fighting and theft. Some drug-addicted teens have an increased desire for sex, which can lead to disease transmission such as HIV/AIDS.

3. Learning Issues: Drug usage impairs short and long term memory, which can lead to learning and memory problems later in life.

4. Brain damage: Drug misuse in children and adolescents can lead to major mental illnesses or irreparable brain damage. Shrinkage of the brain, impaired learning ability, and memory issues are all symptoms of brain injury in children. faulty reasoning
