Cazenavette, IV visited Tulane University and addressed students enrolled in the English as a Second Language program. He presented the students with an overview of commonly abused illicit drugs. Although from foreign countries, the questions asked by students were similar to questions asked by students growing up in the United States, thus illustrating the fact that regardless of the country, the societal toll exacted by drug abuse is the same.
