First ladies from various states across the country are waging their own war. This one is against the underage use of drugs and alcohol. Earlier today, Ohio's first lady Hope Taft paid a visit to 5-th graders at West View Elementary School on Dresden Road. Her visit was part of a campaign, established by gubernatorial first ladies, called "Reach Out Now". The program tries to deter underage drinking and drug use in the most crucial developmental stages of a student's life. Through open discussions and various experiments, the First Lady showed the effecrs that alcohol can have on the brain. West View's principal Steven Foreman says that this will have a positive impact on each student to not use drugs and alcohol. Although the First Lady will be unable to visit every school in the state of Ohio, each school will receive the materials used in the campaign.
