1 in 7 teens in the U.S. report having abused prescription
drugs to "get high".
  Fact: More than 60% of teens say prescription drugs are easy
to get from the home medicine cabinet, the homes of
relatives, or from friends.
  Fact: There are concerns about our environment, as improperly disposed medicines are being found in the Great Lakes.  
(Please – no liquid medicine or needles)

A Research-Based Campaign to Educate All Sectors of the
Community About the Dangers of Youth Marijuana Use
    While there's much talk about medical marijuana and the legalization of marijuana for "recreational" purposes in the media and in public discussion, there seems to be very little focus on the many negative consequences of youth use. LET'S START THAT CONVERSATION IN OUR COMMUNITIES!!    
    Mobilizing Michigan … was created by the Chippewa Valley Coalition for Youth and Families, a school-community coalition in central Macomb County Michigan and a Drug Free Communities grantee, and the Macomb County Community Mental Health - Office of Substance Abuse (MCOSA).    
    The Mobilizing Michigan – Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign Tool Kit, has multiple components intended to provide community coalitions, schools, agencies, churches with the tools to educate all sectors of the community – youth, parents, other community members, school staff, law enforcement, government, the faith community, business, youth-serving and other agencies, etc. about the dangers of youth marijuana use. Data and other Information included in the Mobilizing Michigan… Tool Kit is based on research from the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Health, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, etc    
    All Mobilizing Michigan…Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign Tool Kit components can be accessed free-of-charge at www. mcosa.net or cvcoalition.org.

We had over 300 attendees for the Coalition-sponsored conference, Current Drug Use Trends – Implications for Our Youth on March 8th at the Macomb Intermediate School District. Dr. Kevin Sabet provided the national perspective on the issues and a Teen Panel offered the observations of teens. The conference also provided a huge launch for the Coalition's Mobilizing Michigan - Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign, an effort to inform all sectors of the community about the dangers of youth marijuana use.
Information about the Mobilizing Michigan – Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign is coming soon to the website.
