Recently while touring the exhibit, Drugs: Costs and Consequences, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration Museum at the Texas Museum of Science and Technology in Cedar Park, I felt like a DEA agent entering a world of misery and crime that most of us never experience.
Led on this tour by Angie Long, DEA educator with the exhibit, I saw lifelike displays of the human cost of illegal drugs. Unfortunately, Ms. Long said the DEA Museum is searching for another place in the area that could house this 5,000 square-feet DEA exhibit until its departure for its next tour on July 1. TXMOST is closing on March 19 for financial reasons.

The exhibit, on national tour since 2002, is a must hurry and go see. Ms. Long said, “Education is powerful. One of the most powerful things we can do is take the time to educate our young ones about the costs and consequences of drugs. It is a must see for our middle and high school kids."
