The Franklin County Sheriff's Department and the Franklin County D.A.R.E. program presented a program at Phil Campbell High School to educate high school students about the dangers of methamphetamine and how to recognize meth labs.
Lt. Mike Franklin, DARE officer, said the purpose of the presentation was to teach high school students about the dangers of meth use and how to recognize labs and what to do should they find one somewhere.
The students were shown a film that talked about the affect meth has on the body, and what it is made of in an effort to deter them from experimenting with it.
The presentation is a part of the campaign by the D.A.R.E. program and sheriff's department against meth usage.
We commend this program and the efforts being made in county schools.
