In Washington, the government of the USA wants to reduce the number of deaths which are caused by drugs. Recently, the number of deaths went up more than three times, and African-Americans are more than 80 percent of those deaths.

The government wants to focus on prevention and educating children. The plan will cost $24 million and the money will come from the government. The plan will be implemented by September 2020.

Difficult words: recently (not long ago), implement (make active).
