This site shows animated presentations ofthe brain on specific drugs.  This would be effective in demonstrating to students of all ages the impact that drugs can have on their brain development over time.

This collection of several animations is a great way to introduce what is actually happening in the brain normally and with the introduction of various drugs. A great attention grabber.

Technical Remarks:

The animation screen is a bit to small to show in a class so maybe assign it as a reaction paper before class and students will have a good idea of what is going on for the discussion in class.
