KY student teaches how prescription medicine can still be dangerous

Posted: Updated:

Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway is helping spread information about the dangers of prescription drug abuse on a new website.

That website includes testimonials from Kentucky residents who have lost loved ones to that drug abuse.

The Attorney General gave a presentation on the subject to students at Henderson County High School this past fall and today, one student says she's glad she can help teach others how dangerous the medicine in your cabinets can be if used improperly.

"It allows us to know how to avoid that in our future and in our homes today with our younger siblings or maybe even our older siblings and knowing not to use drugs that aren't prescribed directly to us," says Kaylee Reed, a junior at Henderson County High School.
