WAPPINGERS FALLS — The nation's drug czar came to Wappingers Junior High School on Friday to ask seventh-graders for their help with the war on drugs.

John Walters, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, shared a simple, often-repeated message of the dangers of substance abuse. His visit was arranged by U.S. Rep. Sue Kelly, R-Katonah.

In addition to protecting themselves, Walters told the students, "I really need you to protect your friends."
