A free workshop aimed at young Joburgers, Truth about Drugs, will look at illegal drugs and how they affect users and society as a whole.
JOBURG’S youth, aged between 18 and 25 years, have been invited to the Randburg Library for a workshop called “Truth about Drugs”.

Susan Wiersch, the assistant director of the City’s library and information services, explains: “This programme is the second youth programme to be implemented at the Randburg Regional Library as part of the scorecard deliverables.”

It is free to participate, and will take place on 23 May from 2pm to 4.30pm. Drugs that will be discussed include ecstasy, LSD, speed, cocaine, and marijuana. Truth about Drugs will take place quarterly and will be presented in partnership with the Africa Foundation for Human Rights and Tolerance.

At the start of the workshop, the foundation will hand out pre-programme questionnaires. This will be followed by discussions on why drug education is necessary, drug culture, why people take drugs, how drugs work, and how drugs affect the mind.

Bookings can be made by either pre-registering at the library or by calling Ursula Immelman on 011 789 7569.
