The Kentucky State Police have introduced a new mobile substance abuse education exhibit designed to help inform the public about the devastating effects of substance abuse. The 30-foot trailer features 14 flat screen monitors and one touch-screen monitor that present video messages about meth, heroin, marijuana, alcohol, and tobacco. The videos include actual meth users who tell their real-life stories illustrated by before-and-after images that show the dramatic visual progression of their drug abuse. The exhibit also makes use of two showcase displays to highlight examples of a variety of drug paraphernalia and meth-related items. The mobile exhibit is now available for use by schools, clubs, civic organizations, businesses, church, local governments, and communities throughout the state. To schedule the display, contact the Public Affairs Officer at the KSP post closest to your location, or call the KSP Public Affairs Branch at 502-782-1780.
