Students get lessons on effects of meth addiction
MO - An increasing number of children in Missouri are trying methamphetamine for the first time in grade school. John Horton, president of the Rotary Club of Springfield Southeast, says the average age of a first-time user is just over 12 years old. To fight the trend, Horton spearheaded an effort to show hundreds of Springfield School District students exactly what meth can do to a person's body and life. It's a program called Don't Meth With Us.
