Using youtube - Examples

I have been using youtube frequently in classes. I find some of the videos, especially the ones from news stations extremely useful when trying to find video content for any given content. Two videos that deal with the topic of teenage inhalants (drugs) that are short and can be used to stimulate discussion are the following two:
