Schools Nix Drug Speeches from Scientology Group

A Scientology-based drug treatment center has been offering free anti-drug lectures to California schools. NPR's Jennifer Ludden talks to Nanette Asimov of The San Francisco Chronicle, who has reported that the lectures are not just religion-tinged, but filled with bad science. The San Francisco School Advisory Board has ended the lectures.
