Former addict speaks out about drug's danger

     The meth presentation at the Wa-A-Yas last week was not only educational but thought provoking. Informa7-31-14-dave-rogers-and-cyn-reneaution about meth addiction and how it is infiltrating our local areas was discussed as well as what is being done to identify and apprehend criminals involved in drug trafficking.

     Clearly the best way to avoid problems with meth and keep it off our streets, out of our schools and away from our kids is to protect ourselves. How do we do that? Educate ourselves, our kids, and our families.
