A Cambridge teen was arrested last week for selling drugs near a tattoo shop. Thursday, Cambridge-Isanti High School hosted a meth coalition workshop to inform both parents and students on the dangers and culture of drugs. The Isanti County Meth Coalition hosted the event.

Program Coordinator, Sue Clark, said even the most involved parents may not know the signs or how much access their child has when it comes to use of hard narcotics.

Clark said, from her perspective, teen meth use is down, but adds that there is an increase in teen heroin use. The coalition not only targets parents but students as well. Former student drug users talk to the group and tell their stories of addiction and recovery.

The coalition has been in exist now for around a year.
