Examples of flawed topic sentences:
Introduces multiple topics: Teens often take drugs because they are depressed, and there are many health risks associated with drugs.
Too broad: Drugs have bad things linked to them.
Too specific, what will come next?: John Belushi is a famous actor who died from drugs.
Examples of good topic sentences:
--Depression triggers many teens to take drugs.
--Hard drugs such as Meth, Cocaine, or Heroin carry serious health risks.
-- Even some of America's brightest stars have fallen victim to drug addiction.
