Meth: Helping Kids Avoid Fatal Mistakes
LAWYERS CAN HELP
If this plan works, every minute of every meeting I have ever attended will have been worth it. There has been no region of our state unaffected by meth - methamphetamine - the new drug of choice among our youth. And there has been no place that I have been in our state where lawyers did not want to be involved in a solution.
It therefore seemed obvious to enlist the MSBA Criminal Law Section to help the MSBA develop an educational program about meth aimed at middle school- and high school-aged students and recruit lawyers and judges around the state to deliver the program through their community schools. The goal of this program is to quell demand for the drug among young people through education and, hopefully, to save at least one life.
