BOISE -- The first-ever national Meth Awareness Week starts Saturday.

But today, local teens kicked off the week with some surprise flash rallies, including one in Boise.

Teens held signs encouraging people to stay meth free, but some of the signs were intentionally vague.

All the signs we have say 'It ruined my community,' or 'I've seen its effects.' That is just to get people interested and ask questions, ask us what we're doing here and what our goal is, said Kayla Cocozzo with the Teen Advisory Council.

The week continues with web and social content dramatizing the dangerous and devastating effects of meth, and ends with school activities organized by Idaho Meth Project Teen Advisory Council members, like Kayla.
