“Chasing the Dragon” Screening Event
On Monday evening, May 16, 2016, hundreds of Martinsburg residents, community advocates and law enforcement officials filled Martinsburg High School’s auditorium for a very important event in our community’s fight against drugs. The event was held to screen the documentary “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict” which was produced by the FBI and DEA to help educate students, young adults, and families about the dangers of opiate abuse.
The screening was extra special as we were joined by U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, Mayor George Karos, representatives from the FBI and DEA, and one of the featured individuals from the film. Following the documentary was a time of discussion about just how dangerous these drugs can be. The Martinsburg Police Department would like to thank everyone who joined us and helped make this special event possible.
