Say no to drugs

by Christa Lollis

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -Kids are getting ready to head back to class and the Drug Free All Stars were out today teaching them the hard realities of what peer pressures they might face at school. And they were talking to kids in all grades, including elementary school.

All Star Ryan Hill says, "These days kids are starting to drink 9 years old and so definitely, I mean I know it's horrible to look at kids this young having to be affected by it but today it really does."

The All Stars were handing out information and telling their own stories, hoping to stop kids from going down a path they know leads nowhere. "It's not a good thing. They are constantly upset, constantly never happy and I don't want these kids to be like that because I'm always in a good mood and I enjoy it and I want them to also," Hill said.

So they explained how it's ok to be alcohol and drug free and even when it may not seem like the cool thing to do, the All Stars feel it's the right thing to do. "When you know I'm not doing it of course it does kind of have a social pressure to it that that's not the neat thing but that doesn't matter to me. I like my health and I enjoy having fun with kids like right now and I wouldn't have it any other way," Hill explained.

Now they want other kids to follow their lead and enjoy the drug free life they do.

As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
