Experts will talk about the issue of self-medication at a public forum in Pueblo on Tuesday.
The forum is sponsored by The Pueblo Alliance for Healthy Teens and The Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking and Drugging.
The groups say self-medication can be dangerous when someone uses drugs to treat an emotional pain without consulting a doctor.
The forum starts at 7 p.m. Dec. 1 at the Pueblo Municipal Court located at 301 W. B St. The event is free and open to the public.
