The two hour workshop combines a lecture-style format with an interactive, traveling exhibit.  At approximately 20’ X 20’, the Poe Center’s “Teenager of Today’s Bedroom” holds over 70 references to substances that include elements of pop culture and common and not-so-common hiding places for drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
