In this episode, FSA speaks with Franklin County Sheriff A.J. Smith about the various public safety initiatives he has going in his county. Florida’s drug epidemic has been devasting to so many families, and Sheriff Smith has taken a balanced approach of addressing both the supply and demand of drugs.
