The Choices resource was produced prior to the 2016 Psychoactive Substances Act and shows a young person buying NPS from a shop. This, however, may be a useful discussion point to demystify any beliefs still held that you can legally purchase NPS from a shop or on-line. This does not detract from the wider learning in the film in relation to risky behaviours and substance misuse in general.
