Organization Vows to Fight Youth Drug Use

February 18th, 2008 by flanews

One organization, helping Floridas youth excel, is doing more to keep teens off drugs. Representatives from one of the states eight Urban Leagues were at the Capitol to kick off their annual drug awareness week. For the last 16 years, the statewide campaign has promoted awareness about the dangers of crime and substance abuse. This week the league will promote its hotline service, coordinate youth programs and celebrate communities.

I think in the long term, to really address this issue, weve got to focus on our young people and educating them and insuring that they make the right decisions in life and have a life that does not involve drug and alcohol abuse, said representative Curtis Richardson.
