One in 5 high schoolers in Tompkins County* has used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons.  Not all of us have misuse of pharmaceutical drugs on our radar.  Nor are parents or grandparents aware that their own medicine cabinets are potential sources of these drugs for abuse.  What can you do?
