DEA to reimburse travel costs for field trips to see museum exhibit_1543273754895.jpg.jpg

The DEA is paying for field trips for New Mexico kids to learn about the dangers of drugs. 

The federal agency is reimbursing the transportation costs for classes to visit an exhibit at the Natural History and Science Museum called “Drugs: Costs and Consequences.” 

The offer is available to fourth graders and up. 

On top of that, museum directors say they will consider waiving tour fees if they pose a hardship to a school, saying they hope exposing kids to the exhibit will help prevent future drug use. 

That runs from Jan. 26 through the fall of next year.
