Speaking of kid's shows, many children's entertainers add an anti-drug message to their shows. If you are planning to do this, you'll probably find Mr. Davis' manuscript to be very useful. Mr. Davis is a social worker and a part-time professional magician. He has used magic both in anti-drug shows and in counseling situations.
The first chapter in the book contains excellent information on why people use drugs and what techniques are effective in preventing drug abuse. This is followed by several routines (using standard props), which address such issues as abuse of prescription medicines, alcohol abuse, drinking and driving, and cigarette smoking. There is also the full script for a 40-minute show about tobacco, and a chapter on some brief anti-tobacco routines which you can insert in any show. The book ends with a chapter on using magic to counsel children.
This is an excellent manuscript, full of useful information. Recommended.
