Behind the “Main Line Take Over Project”; treating adolescent cannabis dependence


Guests: Jonathan Dueker & Heather Gregan

Two former students of the elite Haverford School are accused of leading a teenage drug trafficking organization that involved at least five other local Main Line high schools and three Pennsylvania colleges. Eleven people have been arrested in the “Main Line Take Over Project,” which involved the distribution of selling marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy to high school students. Weapons and cash were also involved in the bust. Marty talks to JONATHAN DUEKER, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Narcotics Investigation & Drug Control for the Office of the Attorney General of Pennsylvania, about what he’s doing in the Commonwealth to reach out and educate young people about how to avoid getting involved in Drug Trafficking Organizations. Then, HEATHER GREGAN, adolescent coordinator for the Livengrin Foundation, will explain us how she treats teenagers with cannabis dependence.
