Ask the class if they will do heroin when they are older .. should be rather put out by the
question. Tell them to remind you about this at the end.

10 mins              Talk about September 11th, Tony Blair and 90% supplies, and what
                     heroin is, where it comes from and how it is grown.
                     Questions will come in here

10 mins              Give out paper for cutting up; talk about the smuggling route and the
                     people on it.

10 mins              Match the slips, in groups to the chart .. to show the order of countries
                     and drug activity.

5 mins               Open geog.2 and check the answers. Go over the growing again and
                     how it is processed.

10 mins              See if they can do the column of heroin price in the time .. could be
                     finished off another time.

5 mins               Debrief about what they have learned .. and that question. Only they
                     can stem the supply of heroin by eliminating the demand!
