I think there is a real chance the Klein's can make a difference.
. But only if main stream media can report it, and they are not silenced by the mosdos heads who feel that they are on the hot seat... And are all tzadikim etc

ועמך כולם צדיקים...לעןלם ירשו ארץ
from all those tzadikim all we get are people in the ground

Its about time someone said something publicly. Kol hakavod to the Klein's.
Just dealt with a yeshiva who told a boy who is graduating from their own elementary school that he is not welcome in their high school because "he will drown here"...with no options offered. Then when he chooses a great place the old yeshiva tries to meddle because "s'past nisht" that their elementary graduate should go "there". Im disgusted.

Chinuch is not a business. Its hatzolas nefashos.

amazing how much courage these parents have. taking a tragedy and turning it to something which will hopefully end up saving people from the same fate

Couldn't stop listening, despite subpar audio quality, and seeing upfront how long this is.

Very powerful. Strong messages at the end regarding Chinuch. Though I have to disagree with him about this being an issue only at the extremes, negativity and rejection can leave a deep scar even with those that will seem OK. This is a chinuch issue (and not only for mechanchim, but also for parents, and everyone), words do mean something, words could not only kill, but they could maim. Sometimes it will be more obvious, sometimes it will be more serious, but in all cases, words can and do injur.  I heard once from an old time melamed who said, if a person doesn't love (unconditionally - if I may add) each and every child in the classroom as their own, that person shouldn't be in chinuch.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Define drug related

ETA: "drug poisoning and drug related mental disorders" What does that mean?

Huh? There's a widespread narcotic epidemic. Didn't you know this?

These pretty much lay it out. Prescription abuse abuse is the gateway. I would argue that weed is a gateway and will not duck.  I disagree with those who say its harmless or should be legalized.
