Press Release

The White House has named the Rozga family of Indianola an Office of National Drug Control Policy Advocate for Action for 2013 for their work to prevent and educate the public about synthetic drugs. Sen. Chuck Grassley worked closely with the Rozga family after their son and brother, David, died after ingesting a synthetic drug, K2, bought from the local mall. Congress later banned the chemicals used to make several synthetic drugs. Grassley made the following comment on the White House's position for Jan, Mike, and Daniel Rozga.

"It might be human nature to turn inward after a tragedy but the Rozga family did the opposite. They channeled their grief into educating the public about a drug no one knew much about at the time. The Rozgas played a large role in persuading Congress to enact a synthetic drugs ban. They'll make the most of their advocacy role from the White House."
