The Wetaskiwin RCMP and some partners are holding an information night about dangerous drugs Apr. 11.

School resource officer Cst. Holly Porterfield said the police are inviting local parents and the entire community to the École Queen Elizabeth School for an information night packed with important, and serious, facts.

Porterfield said the subject will be illegal drugs: what they are, what they look like, the effects drugs have on the body, warnings signs that youth, or anyone, might be using, opium-derived drugs like heroin and information about what to do in an overdose situation.

Drugs to be discussed include marijuana, cocaine, crystal meth, ecstasy, fentanyl and more.

Porterfield noted the presentation is offered in partnership with Turning Point from Red Deer.

The information night will be held Monday, Apr. 11 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in École Queen Elizabeth School. Porterfield said lots of parking is available across the street at the courthouse.

Other sponsors include Alberta Health Services and HUB.
