Kids and Family
We have practical information on how you can talk to your children and the people you love about drugs to help keep them smart and safe. And that starts with us all as adults.
Everything your child learns about alcohol and drugs they learn from you first. The example you set is the most powerful message they will receive.
Be Smart Be Safe looks the mix of drugs that available in our community and are often in our homes so that you can have a better understanding about what they do to our bodies and our brains.
