New Drug Epidemic Causing 3x Deaths Of Cocaine Epidemic

There are so many attention grabbing ways of beginning this post…

  • Millions of parents deal drugs to their kids
  • 44% of teens have friends who abuse drugs
  • An increase in free drugs
  • Kids are stealing their parents drugs stashes
  • 200M pounds of drugs left in the open for kids to find
  • 10 deaths per 100,000 people from drugs

Would you have guessed that all of these are talking about prescription drugs?

The Medicine Abuse Project (at www.drugfree.org) is trying to get this word out and find a way to change this. The basic points of their messaging:

  1. Safeguard your medications…lock them up and throw extra ones away.
  2. Talk to your kids about drugs and the risk of abusing legal and illegal drugs.
