Substance abuse is a growing concern in the United States. That’s why Ohio Governor John Kasich has made it a priority to put in place programs that can slow it down in the Buckeye State.

The initiative “Start Talking!” is a youth drug prevention campaign created by the governor and First Lady Karen Kasich to prevent drug use before it ever starts. Based on national research, children are 50 percent less likely to use drugs when their parents or a trusted adult talks with them about drug use.
