CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The opioid crisis has touched every inch of the United States.
Three former Panthers talked with students about the dangers of the drugs Tuesday at a Carolinas Opioid Reduction Effort meeting.
It's a conversation Debbie Dalson wishes she had with her 23-year-old son Hunter.
“Hunter was amazing and that’s not just a proud mom talking her, Dalson said. "But with all the good decisions that he made, he made the decision to use recreational drugs.”
Watch the video above to hear the group's plea for parents to educate themselves and their kids.
