Forums to explore drug use in Highway 2 communities

Originally published Jul. 24, 2014

Illegal drugs are taking a heavy toll on communities along U.S. Highway 2 in Eastern Snohomish County. Two August public forums will explore the extent of the problem and what can be done to stem the tide of crime, overdoses and ruined lives.

“Drugs in Our Communities” will be presented by Sno-Isle Libraries and KSER-FM at 7 p.m. Aug. 7 at Snohomish Library, 311 Maple Ave., and 7 p.m. Aug. 14 at Monroe Library, 1070 Village Way. The events are free.

Panelists will include Detective David Chitwood of the Snohomish Regional Drug and Gang Task Force and Bart Wheaton, chemical dependency counselor, Catholic Community Services/Cocoon House. Moderator Ed Bremer, KSER news and public affairs director, will invite questions from the audience. A Sno-Isle Libraries staff member will be live tweeting during the events using hashtag #snoisleITM.

The programs are part of the Issues That Matter public affairs series supported by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation. Additional event information and library resources related to illegal drugs are available online at
