Bryan Webb looked across the room at the Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center on Saturday and smiled.

He was pleased to see the passion of the more than 130 people who packed the room to hear experts from across North Texas give their views on how to address the drug problem in Flower Mound, Lewisville and the surrounding communities.

Webb, the Flower Mound councilman who helped set up the event, said the problem is real.
