Largo, FL. – 18 March 2013 – A group of young Drug-Free Marshals have been on the prowl in Tampa Bay tracking down the scourge of drug addiction and its gang of followers. Distributing their own form of “Wanted” posters, the youth hope to force illicit drugs to go on the run.
Over the last week the Drug-Free Marshalls visited local merchants around Tampa Bay, asking them to take the Drug-Free Marshal pledge to lead a drug-free life and to place educational booklets on drugs of abuse in their stores, which they provided free of charge.
The drug education booklet called “The Truth About Drugs” has also been provided to thousands of youth and others in the Tampa Bay area.
The Truth About Drugs booklets are easy-to-read, illustrated publications covering the most common illicit drugs on the street: marijuana, ecstasy, heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, Ritalin, LSD and painkillers.
Simple, graphic and factual, these publications contain compelling real-life testimony from former users, statistics, and accurate information about why drugs are harmful. It provides the drug facts that allow young people to make their own decisions, making them invulnerable to peer pressure or the drug “sales pitch.”
The booklet is produced by the Foundation for a Drug-Free World.
The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free.
