Community leaders met in Palm Beach County for a forum on the drug Flakka.

Law enforcement, political leaders, school officials and parents talked about available resources in the community to fight the use of the drug.

Members of the Palm Beach County Substance Awareness Coalition say there is still a lot to be done to help stop the drug use from getting worse.

Epidemiologist James Hall says Flakka stays in a person's blood longer and that may make it particularly easy to overdose.

The drug has been linked to deaths by suicide as well as heart attack
