How we're working to solve the problem.

We're working hard to deal with the serious problems caused by illegal drug use.

Use of illegal drugs causes serious problems in our communities.

Drug addiction causes young people to drop out of school, and it makes parents lose interest in their children. It pushes people into lives of crime and poverty, destroys ambition and ruins lives.

Drug dealing brings crime and violence to otherwise peaceful communities, and makes people feel helpless and afraid in their own home towns.

We're working hard to limit the damage drugs do.
