Taylor County’s “March Against Meth” raises awareness

(WAOW) – The growing meth problem in Wisconsin has community members in Taylor County banding together and taking action.

The annual “March Against Meth” in Medford raises awareness and educates the public on the problem.

For one of the event’s supporters, the meth epidemic hits too close to home.

Tammy Renly’s son has been using drugs for more than a decade, but turned to meth in recent years, even dealing from their home. She said so many househoulds suffer in silence, but that the mission of the march is to make sure no one has to fight this battle alone.

“It’s ok to say it’s your house, it’s ok to say this is what we’re dealing with and let the community know that it doesn’t have to be a dirty secret and there’s a lot of power in the fact that we band together and that we talk about it.” Renly said.

The event has been held for the past two years and the plan is to keep it going.
