Juvenile Justice raises awareness of drug trends among youth

Posted: Updated:

Juvenile Justice hosted a symposium for community members and professionals to reflect on new drugs and issues young adults face. 

Lubbock County Magistrate Melissa McNamara said it allows practitioners of juvenile and family law to discuss topics on youth including drug trends, alcohol abuse and addiction.

"I think overall everybody's really been open to the things that we've been talking about. There's been a lot of good discussion about some of the new types of drugs and types of issues that kids are facing," she said. 

Lubbock State Senator Charles Perry also provided an update on his legislative agenda for the upcoming session.

Lawmakers return to Austin in January.
