Colorado Joint Counterdrug Task Force takes anti-drug message to Colorado schools

Michael Moore, an agent with the Drug Enforcement Agency, speaks to students at Peiffer Elementary School in Littleton, Colo., during Red Ribbon Week Oct. 13, 2008. Moore is asking the kids what they want to be when they grow up, and telling them that drugs will ruin those dreams. The Colorado National Guard's Joint Counterdrug Task Force, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency and Miss Colorado, is leading the charge to bring an anti-drug message to 65 schools across Colorado within a two-week period. The CO-JCDTF supports local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, community-based organizations and schools with a variety of services to help rid Colorado communities of the effects of drug abuse and associated social issues.

The National Family Partnership is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week Celebration, and the Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation.
