Under the Influence: Addressing Vaping, Alcohol and Cannabis

Virtual Event

Screenagers Under The Influence: Addressing Vaping, Drugs, and Alcohol in the Digital Age is the third feature documentary in the Screenagers trilogy. It delves into how the tech revolution has reshaped adolescence and its effects on substance use. The film debunks myths and depicts strategies parents and schools can use to encourage healthy decision-making, support teen mental health, set limits, and create healthy home environments. The film also includes many ways young people are using their wisdom and strength to help each other and themselves through this complicated terrain around substance use.

While most documentaries about substance use focus on severe addiction, Screenagers Under The Influence fills a pressing need for a film that explores more common scenarios. The film is grounded in teens’ current reality of being flooded by images on social media, movies, and TV shows about vaping, drugs, and alcohol.

Timothy Fong MD (Glenbard West class of ‘90) is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA and part of the faculty leadership of the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative, a multidisciplinary effort to examine the full impact of cannabis on the body, mind and brain.
