The Ohio State Highway Patrol and National Guard spoke to student athletes Monday, sharing stories of those who have ruined their lives by one simple choice, to use drugs.
They're visiting schools across the state encouraging students to make good decisions and spread the message around their school.
The officers only spent about five minutes with the students, to show that in just five minutes they can easily make a choice that can change their lives.
"We just want to get the message out there to the students that not using drugs and be a voice for us too. See something say something. And to make sure that the word is out that we're looking for it and that it's not cool to do those types of things", says Lieutenant Carlos Smith of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Afterwards, students who chose to become an ambassador signed their name and are asked to use social media and other means to spread the message around their school to keep away from drugs.
