KNOXVILLE, TN (WRCB) -- Hamilton County District Attorney Bill Cox and fellow Tennessee district attorneys debuted Deceptive Danger, a new statewide campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of prescription medication and synthetic drug abuse, at an annual law enforcement training conference on Wednesday.

The district attorneys unveiled an educational DVD featuring real Tennesseans affected by these drugs and a personal message from Gov. Bill Haslam.

The DVD and accompanying posters and brochure are being distributed to public middle and high schools across the state through an ongoing partnership between the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference and the Tennessee Department of Education.
