DENVER (CBS4) – The Colorado Meth Project is out with a new campaign aimed at keeping teens off the dangerous drug.
Colorado Attorney General John Suthers helped kick off the campaign and the new website Tuesday morning at Washington High School in Denver. It features aggressive and graphic ads showing what happens to teens who use meth.
One student, Ashley Hatzenbihler, has seen the impact of meth on her family and friends and says people need to know how common meth use is in Colorado.
“A lot of teenagers and a lot of members of the pubic just are unaware of what meth is,” Hatzenbihler said. “They don’t think it’s around their area, but really it’s so prevalent. It’s so huge in our culture right now.”
Colorado ranks seventh in the nation for total number of meth users 12 years old and older.
