Child-drug images part of NH anti-drug campaign
By


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Posters and TV spots showing children with prescription drugs, alcohol and marijuana are part of the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Hampshire youth prevention campaign this year.

The images and statistics accompanying them are targeting parents and caregivers of children ages 9 to 17 in New Hampshire, trying to have them learn more about the growing problem of youth drug and alcohol abuse.

According to the statistics, one in every five high school students in the state has admitted to abusing prescription drugs. New Hampshire also ranked second in the nation for alcohol use among 12-to-20-year-olds and in the top 10 states for marijuana use among the same age group in the past month.
