DRUGS + YOUR KIDS: Learning to Recognize the Signs

As the drug culture changes, parents need to be aware of new products and drug paraphernalia making their way into the hands of teens.

 To educate parents, the Department of Public Safety produced:  DRUGS + YOUR KIDS: Learning to Recognize the Signs.

 “We know that good kids can make poor decisions,” said Department of Public Safety Commissioner Mona Dohman. “Parents can be the biggest influence in guiding their children in the right direction. This video is a resource in helping parents identify the danger signs of possible drug use.”
