• Detail the urgency of substance abuse in Upper Arlington
• Explain how local resources are being organized to address the problem
• Offer ideas for proper storage and disposal of prescription drugs, a leading gateway to illicit drugs addiction
• Allow parents and others a chance to ask questions and share input.
Panelists will include Police Chief Brian Quinn, UA High School Principal Andrew Theado, Drug Free Action Alliance Executive Director Marcie Seidel, former UA Mayor David Varda, and UA Assistant City Attorney Thad Boggs. Dr. Brad Mitchell will moderate the discussion.
