Richie Sambora joined drug forum at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River

Ocean County Prosecutor Joe Coronato hosted a drug forum hoping that it would help to crack down on the heroin epidemic there, with the help of a big name which never fails to draw some attention. The event took place at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River and everything was made lively with live performances by featured guitarist Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi.

While the forum was taking place, he performed a few songs and though his performances he was looking forward to reach out to the young people so that they could receive the message about the use and abuse of drugs and how dangerous they can be for one’s life. He conveyed his musical message of "Lean on Me" with the help of the Manchester High School choir.

Richie Sambora said that he has been speaking up against the abuse of drugs because he can relate to the entire thing and he’s conveying these messages after some experience. And he surely made his point clear when he said "Don't do it. Case closed...You know, nobody gets out alive.”

The host Joe Coronato stated that "We're not going to arrest our way out of it.” DARE vehicles and other displays were set up at the site as county officials hosted one in a series of events meant to educate and communicate and Coronato was glad that he had involved a rock star in this because people tend to accept the messages more willingly when they are coming out from one of their own idols.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
