Drugs Destroy Dreams

March 8th, 2010 by flanews

State leaders are joining members of the Tallahassee Urban League to fight drug use and violent crime among teens.

Representatives from the Attorney Generals Office, the Florida Office of Drug Control, and the Tallahassee Police Department joined the Urban league in support of Drugs Destroy Dreams week. Emery Gainey, the AGs Director of Law Enforcement Relations says families, charities, and churches need to pitch in to fix the problem.

This isnt just a law enforcement issue. This is an entire community issue. We talk about it all the time. In order to be effective its going to take the entire community coming together, every single one of our partners to examine the problem, to work together, said Gainey.

Gainey credited the Attorney Generals gang reduction taskforce for helping reduce drug use and violence. Last month the taskforce released a report claiming 50-thousand gangsters are living in the state.
