Seminar to discuss drug use in county



A free seminar is being planned to discuss drug use in Washington County and what help is available.

The HotSpots anti-crime initiative and the Character Counts! program are sponsoring the seminar on Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. at Christ's Reformed Church, according to Carolyn Brooks, HotSpots Coordinator.

There will be a panel discussion followed by a question-and-answer period, she said.

The seminar will focus on drugs commonly found in the area and the rising popularity of ecstasy, she said.

"Parents are encouraged to come with their children to discuss choices and consequences to drug use," she said.

She said the seminar will help parents to identify warning signs of drug use and what they should do about it.

Featured speakers will be from Washington County Hospital, Washington County Health Department, Hagerstown City Police Department and Washington County Health Department.

"People will find out what police is doing by way of law enforcement, what certain drugs look like and why people turn to drugs," she said.
