MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - The White House drug czar will visit Milwaukee on Wednesday.
Gil Kerlikowske will promote a national campaign called the “Influence Project.” It encourages young people to talk about the pressures that influence their decisions about drugs and alcohol. Teens in Milwaukee have taken part in test activities which helped form the campaign.
Kerlikowske will also meet with officials of the Milwaukee area’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking program. And he’ll get a look at prevention programs for violence and substance abuse at the United Community Center.
