Presley Delivers Teen Drug Use Message

Rock widow PRISCILLA PRESLEY delivered a heartfelt speech to parents on Saturday (20SEP03) warning them to be aware of their children's exposure to alcohol and drugs.

The 58-year old star told an Oklahoma City audience that her experience of trying to support husband ELVIS and daughter LISA MARIE as they struggled through addiction have convinced her that education is the only way to combat the problem.

She said: "Throughout my life, I've had the heartbreaking experiences of family and friends fall the victim of alcohol and drugs.

"I have a 16-year-old son so I'm around teenagers a lot and I see what they're going through. More than half of our nation's youth have tried illegal drugs before they finish high school."
