Joplin truckers learn about proactively combating changing drug use trends

Some Con-way truck drivers in Joplin attended a seminar about the changing trends of drug abuse across the nation.

Dog handlers with "K9 University," out of Oklahoma City, made the presentation.  They first cited federal statistics, showing how badly illegal drug use and prescription drug abuse can affect industrial work.

The handlers also showed how their dogs can sniff out drugs.

The guest speaker at the seminar says he hopes this presentation was useful for truck drivers, as they travel the continent and see a lot of different situations.

"If there's somebody on the fence (of to or not to illegally use drugs), they see these dogs work and see the actual statistics.  They kind of decide which side of the fence they want to be on," says Angel Soriano with K9 University.

Con-way says the seminar is a proactive defense against drug abuse.
