The nation needs a cure for prescription drug abuse

Cyrus Abusaba’s mother died from an overdose of alcohol and anti-anxiety pills; years later, he sees his peers abusing the medication, thinking it was harmless. “As the coroner pronounced my mother’s death, he turned to my stepfather and said, ‘We are seeing this happen all the time.'” His commentary is a sad warning to other young people that prescription medications, taken as recreational drugs, are more dangerous than you think. It’s on Youth Radio.
