Good Samaritan working to combat Tulalip tribal drug deaths


SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. -- Rico Jones Fernandez loves the woods of the Tulalip reservation. He played in them as a little boy. As he walked through them Thursday morning, however, he understood they’re no place for children anymore.

The grounds along a popular trail are littered with trash and hypodermic needles – evidence of the Tribe’s growing drug problem.

“I think about addiction as this age's leprosy,” said Rico. “People hate them. They're outcasts.”
