What parents should know about drugs
Illegal drugs can affect your child in any community in the United States. There is no "safe haven" from drugs, since it is an epidemic that crosses all socio-economic and educational lines. All parents should be informed about what drugs are in the community, what kids are talking about, peer pressure, signs of drug usage and how to talk to your children about drugs.
