In this episode we discussed DUI-D - driving under the influence of drugs. Lt. Gosnell explained that this isn't always illegal drugs. We talked about the opioid epidemic, as well as prescription drugs and the impact they can have on people who take them and then get behind the wheel. We also discussed the recent regional MADD Awards Luncheon where Deputies, Officers and Troopers from our area were recognized for their work in the prevention of impaired driving. Lt.
