Video of the Week: We’re Not Gonna Take It!

Congratulations to Adam Schmidt/Vaughn Smith of Walton High School, first place winners in the “We’re Not Gonna Take It” video contest, launched by Attorney General Olens in September. The contest was open to all Georgia high school students. Students were challenged to produce a 30-second video encouraging their peers to live a healthy lifestyle by rejecting prescription drug abuse.

“Congratulations to the winners of the ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ video contest,” said Attorney General Olens. “We received many excellent entries, and I know the judges had a difficult task in choosing a winner. The winning video sends a strong message that abusing prescription drugs is not a game and can turn deadly quickly.”
