March 15 - Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council Announces Workshops
(Middletown, CT) Anthony Salvatore, Board President of the Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council (MCSAAC) announced that workshops will be held for parents and young adults to provide testimony on the legalization of marijuana. Four workshops will be held, two at the Middlesex YMCA in Middletown and two at the Valley Shore YMCA in Westbrook. The first workshop offers participants the latest news on marijuana and its impact on youth, health, and society. In the second workshop, participants will practice giving their three-minute testimonies. Several volunteer legislators will join the second workshop, providing guidance and feedback to participants.
The workshop series for The Valley Shore YMCA in Westbrook will be held at the following dates and times:
Workshop 2: Wednesday, March 15, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Edit your testimony and practice speaking. One or two local legislators will be on hand to give feedback and encouragement.
This year, three bills have been introduced to legalize marijuana. If any of the bills pass, marijuana will be sold in stores for recreational use.
“A new generation of kids might be growing up with both alcohol and psychotropic drugs as adult recreation. If you have an opinion about this, it’s time to get active. We encourage community members to use our workshops to help persuade legislators to see your point of view,” said Director of Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council Betsey Chadwick.
The workshops are free and open to the public but seating is limited. For more information contact Betsey Chadwick at MCSAAC by calling 860-347-5959 or via email at email@example.com
MCSAAC is recognized by the State of Connecticut as a Regional Action Council, devoted to the prevention and reduction of alcohol and drug abuse, especially among youth. It is a Council of the Middlesex County Business Industry Foundation, Inc., an affiliate of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce.
