Check out the Did You Know landing page to see the complete series of tools to help families talk about drugs. Did You Know includes a video and comic for each common drug in New Zealand - alcohol, cannabis, methamphetamine, synthetics, and huffing.

On each drug page, you can watch a video and read a comic containing important facts to share with your young person to help them decide not to use these substances in the future. Choose to watch each video with either Te Reo Māori or English narration. In the English version of each video, turn on or off subtitles in English, Samoan or Tongan.

The comic strips can be viewed in Te Reo Māori, Chinese, Samoan, Tongan or English. But the best bit is you can ask us to send you any of our multi-lingual posters beautifully printed for your wall - Just fill-out the order form on our Resources page!

Big shout out to Le Va for providing us with the Samoan and Tongan translations - we couldn't have done it without you!
