This site provides information on the Governor Kasich’s 5 Minutes for Life.  It centers on Ohio State Troopers, Ohio National Guard members and local law enforcement talking for five minutes with student leaders, such as student-athletes, student council members, and band leaders before or after a practice or a meeting, about responsible decision-making, leadership and encouraging those in their peer group to live a drug-free lifestyle. This educational campaign aims to reduce and ultimately eliminate drug use among students.  Leaders subsequently spread the word.
