COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) has announced her support of Governor Kasich and First Lady Karen Kasich’s drug abuse prevention program.


“Start Talking” is a drug abuse prevention program that is aimed at educating children about the risks of drugs and substance abuse. The program gives parents and guardians the tools to begin the conversation before drug use even starts in order to reduce the likelihood through increased communication. Children of parents who talk to their teens about drugs are 50 percent less likely to use.


Governor Kasich and Mrs. Kasich kicked off the initiative yesterday at separate events at West Carrollton Middle School and Finneytown Local School District Secondary School. They were joined by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, former Cincinnati Bengals Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, Ohio Superintendent of Instruction Richard Ross, Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services Director Tracy Plouck, Ohio Department of Aging Director Bonnie Burman, Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Ted Wymyslo and Ohio Department of Public Safety Director John Born.


“Drug abuse is an epidemic that is sweeping the nation and Ohio is not immune,” Rep Anielski said. “We must do all that we can to protect Ohio’s most precious gifts, our children.”


More information about the “Start Talking” program is available at www.StartTalking.ohio.gov.
