Samís Watch announces life-saving media series for schools as teens head off for spring break


Indianapolis, IN – WEBWIRE

ďStudents on spring break Ė especially those who are traveling with friends - may be looking for ways to kick back and relax,Ē said Jeanine Motsay, Samís mother and president of Samís Watch. ďThey need to know that using synthetic drugs is not the way to have a good time. They need information to make wise decisions, and these materials will provide that awareness.Ē

Middle and high school students who will be headed off to spring break need to be aware of the dangers of synthetic drugs and Samís Watch is offering materials to their schools to be sure the kids are.†

Samís Watch is a nonprofit dedicated to teaching young people about the dangers of synthetic drugs. It was formed after Sam Motsay, a 16-year-old honors student-athlete, died on Mothersí Day 2014 from using the synthetic drug 25i-NBOMe.

Samís Watch will provide an audio public service announcement, a series of videos including a documentary and free evidence-based drug-awareness materials to schools that request the resources. To receive the materials, a school representative should contact Samís Watch by phone at 888-575-1015, email at jeanine@samswatch.org or online at www.samswatch.org/take-action/.

The one-minute PSA ďKnow NowĒ was designed as an audio-only medium to be used during a schoolís regularly scheduled announcements or at hall passing time between classes.

The five-minute video ďSynthetic Drugs - Community Stops Drug UseĒ and a seven-minute video ďSynthetic Drugs (Extended Edition)Ē were created by two Kansas City high school students with interviews from law enforcement, a toxicology expert and Sam Motsayís mother, Jeanine.

The 15-minute documentary, called ďThe Power of Choice,Ē was created by three Indianapolis-area high school seniors who chose to make the video to spread awareness about synthetic drugs in memory of Sam. All three videos are for schools to choose from for student assemblies and class activities.† Samís Watch encourages schools to share the PSA, videos and documentary links with parents as well as their communities.

Samís Watch also will connect schools with additional information from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the federal agency that stimulates most of the worldís research on drug use and addiction. †
