National Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday!  Don't miss it!
It's time!

Please take this time to safely dispose of your expired or no longer needed medications for FREE
 
Saturday, April 27th
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
at the
Raymond Police Station
1 Scribner Road



This event is important for so many reasons - 
but the most important is safety!



"When we limit access to a drug we reduce the chance that the drug can be misused by someone that it is not meant for."  



Listen to this WMUR Facebook live video to learn about the importance of disposing of 15,000 pounds of medication in one day.
 

Share our Facebook event with your friends so more people will know about this important day. 

A special thank you to Wal-Mart for donating some amazing prizes for our day.  Everyone who comes will get a ticket to enter our drawing.  We will also have hot dogs, coffee and donuts. 

The Raymond Police Department will have the motorcycle and police cruiser out for kids to explore. 

This is a fun community event to raise awareness to the importance of safe medication disposal and our community working together. 

This event is made possible through the partnerships and collaboration of our Raymond Coalition For Youth partners - DEA, Raymond Police Department, and Wal-Mart.

April 20, 2019:
420, 4:20 & 4/20   
However you refer to it, 420 is a great excuse to talk about marijuana - prevention.   It’s a pretty good bet that the young people in your life know this slang term is commonly associated with marijuana.

You can just ask them if they heard about 420, and then sit back and listen.  It's a perfect excuse to start a conversation and turn it into a prevention opportunity. 
 
The important part is to have factual information regarding marijuana that you can share as a part of the conversation.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation everywhere people look from the Big Marijuana business people looking to make money off of use.  We want to provide you with factual information on the dangers, risks, and potency of this drug.  
 
Make it fun, how many of these six questions can you get correct?  Kids (adults too) like a little challenge to see just how much they know.  This is an eye-opener for people to learn about “today’s marijuana.”  This is an excellent site for information too. 

Make sure they know Marijuana use impairs mental functions in ways that don’t always show physically.  Research has shown impairments in essential mental functions such as Memory, Reflexes, Judgment, Attention, Cognitive skills and Perception.  These impairments can last for weeks after using marijuana.
 
The big question, how can we prevent marijuana use with kids?
  1. Set Rules and Expectations:  Be clear that you are against your child’s use and make sure they are aware of the consequences should they break the rules.
  2. Ask Questions:  Ask your child what they know about drug use in our community and schools. This is the world they live in. 
  3. Discuss Legal Ramifications:  Marijuana in NH – learn more here.
  4. Lead by Example:  If you use marijuana for medical purposes or recreationally, do not use in front of your children. For therapeutic cannabis use, here are some safety guidelines to follow. 
  5. Start Talking and Keep Talking:  Young people need trusted adults to talk to about issues that are important or concerning to them.  Open communication is a proven prevention tool that is free.  A good place to start, the dinner table – all devices off and ask about their day. 
  6. Reduce Access to this drug:  Our NH legislative body is looking at HB 481 to legalize marijuana in NH.  Please take a moment to learn about this and use your voice to make your concerns be heard.  Our Youth Action students made this video to help raise awareness.  Please help them by passing it along to others.
  7. Be informed:  We have included some very helpful and informative sites below in this email that are constantly researching and sharing updated information.  This is information that the media doesn't always share but is important to know.  
Each and every day we are learning more about marijuana.  It is crucial to have updated information and know the impact this drug has on our youth and communities.  Please visit our website often as it is updated regularly.  Below is more information, and visiting our social media sites is an easy way to stay connected and updated.

Adults are already overwhelmed with the news about vaping and "JUULs".  It is vital to point out that our youth are concerned about their peers who are actually vaping marijuana now.  Of even greater concern is that the marijuana concentrates that are used in these devices have very high THC levels usually. 

Please check out at the bottom our other exciting events happening soon:  Operation Raymond Clean Up DEA Medication Take Back event and our 2019 Discount Cards are in!  

As always, we thank you for your continued support and being a part of the community effort that is the Raymond Coalition For Youth.

Have a great weekend,
Celeste Clark, Executive Director

RESOURCES & MORE INFORMATION
regarding Marijuana

Know! What's New with 420
From our friends at Know! A program of Prevention Action Alliance, just put out a great newsletter that gets you all the facts you need to know about 420. 

Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM)
Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) is an alliance of organizations and individuals dedicated to a health-first approach to marijuana policy. They are professionals working in mental health and public health. They are bipartisan. They are medical doctors, lawmakers, treatment providers, preventionists, teachers, law enforcement officers and others who seek a middle road between incarceration and legalization. Their commonsense, third-way approach to marijuana policy is based on reputable science and sound principles of public health and safety.  Learn more here.

Also, if you are on Twitter, follow Kevin Sabet - Former adviser to 3 US Administrations. Founder/President of SAM. Promoting smart drug policy solutions rooted in public health. Author of Reefer Sanity. His Twitter feed is always up to the minute with information that you will not hear on the evening news. 

The Marijuana Report
This newsletter is a wealth of information about what is happening with Marijuana, and is very up-to-date. Read the latest edition here
Take Back 420
TakeBack 420 is designed to promote awareness, empower youth and inform our communities about the harms of adolescent use. TakeBack 420 is a day to encourage prevention for those who have not used and help those who may have started already to reduce or stop their usage.
SCIENCE SHOWS THE DANGERS OF MARIJUANA USE

Young people who use e-cigarettes are more likely to progress to smoking cigarettes, study finds
Using both e-cigarettes and cigarettes at the same time — called dual use — is a common use pattern among youth. In 2015, 65 percent of youth who had used an e-cigarette in the last 30 days also reported using another tobacco product in the same time frame. Read more here. 
Vaping Marijuana causes increased impairment
Research out of Johns Hopkins University in Maryland found that no matter the amount of THC, those who vaped marijuana reported more powerful effects (than smoking), including serious impairment in their reaction time and overall cognitive abilities. 
Marijuana-related emergency visits on uptick at UMass Memorial
The increase in marijuana-related emergency visits being seen in Massachusetts since marijuana has been legalized there is worth noting, particularly because so little is known about cannabis use and how it will affect peoples’ lives — for instance, in driving.
Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome
A mysterious condition makes marijuana users violently ill, and it reveals a hidden downside to the drug's growing popularity.

The Importance of talking to young people about Alcohol and other drugs

Please talk to all of the young people in your life about the impact of experimenting with any drug, including alcohol. It is not just 'those kids' or 'those families'. These two young NH adults had very promising futures in high school but getting mixed up with substances changed that.

Better than roses Valentine opportunities!  

Happy almost Valentine’s Day!
I hope you are safe and warm in the crazy New England weather.  No school today so make the most of it!  I wanted to send out a few quick reminders as this is a busy week.
  1. Our monthly Raymond Coalition For Youth meeting is tomorrow, February 14th, 9:00 - 10:30 am at the Raymond Baptist Church.  We have two special guests, Kim Haney to talk about the new Hub and Spoke model to connect people to treatment, and Chris Brown from Gateway Treatment in Nashua to talk about resources they have as well.  The full agenda can be viewed at www.rcfy.org here.  We will have special treats and encourage you to bring a friend or colleague to learn more.  
  2. We have a great idea for your sweetie for Valentine’s Day tomorrow!  Tickets to our 6th Annual Fundraising Gala on March 16th.  This will give you a fun night out with comedian Juston McKinney, a delicious meal at the Atkinson Country Club and you will be supporting a great organization.  A gift that can be celebrated tomorrow and on March 16th!
  3. Speaking of the Gala, we want to thank all of our sponsors and the very generous supporters who are sending in very exciting auction items and prizes!  View the full list on our website Gala page.  We have some pretty amazing trips that are for sale, too – to sunny warm places. 
  4. Hopefully you knew Family Fun Night is Friday night?  We are super excited for this too.  Please share this great event with your network and encourage families to attend.  We have over 30 partners, organizations and groups represented and free refreshments are being provided by Coke and Pizza by George.  This is one of our most popular events and we don’t want you to miss it.
As always, thank you for your support and being a part of RCFY. Supporting our young people and community truly takes a village and we have an amazing village to be proud of! 

Thank you,

Celeste Clark, Executive Director

Know what's up!
Keeping kids safe is our job.  Keeping our community informed and updated is also our job.  For that reason, we want to make sure you know that on Tuesday, February 5th, there will be a hearing in Concord to discuss legalizing marijuana in the State of NH.  This is House Bill (HB) 481.

This is a very hot topic and generates a LOT of conversation.  There are people who are very passionate about this issue.  There are also people who stand to make a lot of money if this is passed and the cost will be the health, well being and safety of our children.  This is why your voice, verbally or in writing, is so important.

We are here to provide the information and ask you to contact the committee and let them know where you stand on the legalization of marijuana.

It is important to know!

Therapeutic Cannabis is already here in NH for patients who need it for medical conditions. 

Marijuana is decriminalized in NH.  This means an individual gets a ticket, not arrested, for possessing (having) personal amounts of marijuana.
 
Legalization - 
Why does this matter, and why should we care?  

1.  Marijuana use during adolescence, when a young brain is developing, can have long-term negative effects.  (CDC)
2. The earlier (younger) a teen experiments with marijuana, the more at risk they are for addiction and substance misuse later in life.  (NIDA)
3.  Big Marijuana is a business, just like Big Tobacco.  Legalization will open the door for more advertising confusing our young people and parents, even more, and continuing the misconception that this substance is not harmful. 
4.  Public safety concerns, including increased driving impairment and accidents.
5.  We know for a fact that when we increase access to a product that we increase use
6.  Our medical experts are greatly concerned about the impact on public health.  Read more here at NHLives.org 
7.  THC - pot’s psychoactive ingredient – have reached unprecedented heights.  This is not the same pot smoked at Woodstock or even in the mid-1990s. It is a fundamentally different, harder drug.  (SMART CO
8.  It’s not just a joint.  Marijuana forms now include concentrates, oil, wax shatter, dabbing and vaporizing.  (SMART CO Products
8.  Let's learn from others.  Just because other states are doing it doesn't mean NH has to.  Marijuana Legalization is not as glorious and wonderful as predicted.  Watch this very informative video on the impact it has had in Ohio.  How Marijuana Normalization Impacts Communities

 
What can you do?
Call, e-mail, write a letter or attend the hearing to let your voice be heard regarding HB 481.

Tuesday, February 5th, 1 pm
Representatives Hall in the State House

 

Step 1:   Write a short e-mail stating your opinion on the legalization of Recreational Marijuana.  Only 4-6 sentences are required. You can include a thank you for serving us in Concord in their position, highlight any concerns you have regarding the legalization of marijuana, and if applicable, share a brief story from your personal experience.  Be sure to include your full name and the town you live in.  

Step 2:  Send your email to the 
Committee Members and your own Representatives.  Here are links to help you:
