New Jersey Attorney General and Summit resident Christopher Porrino will speak at The East Central District Walk Out on Drugs, beginning at 12 p.m. on Sunday, May 7 at the Gazebo (Echo Lake Drive off Mill Lane) in Mountainside's Echo Lake Park.

Given the proliferation of cheap and plentiful illegal narcotics across the nation and in New Jersey -- and with the alarming rise in deaths due to drug overdose -- we have incorporated a 'Talk on Drugs' featuring a number of speakers who will detail the effects of drugs on you, your body, your family and friends.

You will not want to miss this event, as the information you receive may well help you save the life of a loved one.
