Youth Fentanyl Crisis

We talk about what parents need to know.

Two school districts are meeting with members of their communities to address the growing opiod epidemic.  One meeting being held at High Point High School in Prince George’s County where there have been more than 30 overdoses this school year.  The other, a work session, being held by the Arlington County School Board.  The meeting comes one week after a Wakefield High School 14-year-old died last week.  School systems are sounding the alarm and trying to address the crisis. We talk about what parents need to know.
