Mel Carnahan on Drugs


Good parenting is the best ‘anti-drug’ we have

Gov. Mel Carnahan today helped launch a new national drug awareness campaign. The new ad campaign urges parents to talk to their children about the dangers of substance abuse. “Parents are key when it comes to keeping kids off drugs. Good parenting is the best ‘anti-drug’ we have,” Carnahan said. “Although our war on drugs must be fortified with the best laws, enforcement efforts and resources, we would not be successful without your individual commitment to this cause.”
