When synthetic drugs first appeared on convenience store shelves in the late 2000s, the US government was slow to realize the dangerous effects of these so-called “legal highs.” But with over 42,000 cases of toxic poisoning in just five years, synthetics quickly grew into a national health crisis. Today, Lance Dyer is educating the nation about synthetics, facing the crisis head-on—and winning.
Lance Dyer, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, joined the US Army in 1982 and went on to become a member of its elite Ranger unit. In 2012, his 14-year-old son, Dakota, took synthetic “marijuana” for the first and only time, and as a reaction to the toxin took his own life. His death inspired Lance to spearhead an effort to hold the manufacturers of the drug accountable. The evidence he gathered and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration was used to help arrest and convict 13 people who were directly involved in his son’s death. Lance partnered with the Foundation for a Drug-Free World to continue the work of educating kids, parents and community leaders and helping local, state and federal legislators become aware of the dangers of synthetics and pass effective legislation to ban them.
Lance Dyer is the Founder and Director of the Dakota Dyer Foundation, a nonprofit founded to help educate youth and communities on the truth about synthetic drugs.
