LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA – Under a crisp blue sky, the Longest Walk 5 – War on Drugs got underway this morning at Kellogg Park in La Jolla, California. Some 200 walkers were up early to attend the opening ceremony at Kellogg Park and to begin that walk that will end in the nation’s capital on July 15, 2016.

During the opening ceremony, several speakers spoke openly about the ill effects drugs have had on their families and tribal communities.
