Indiana Schools Use “Marijuana Goggles” to Misinform Kids About Stoned Driving

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

An Indiana school system believes that using scare tactics and other modern day renditions of reefer madness is an effective method for preventing youngsters from experimenting with marijuana.

A recent report from WISH-TV reveals that educators in Hancock County have teamed up with the Neighbors Against Substance Abuse (NASA) and the local Youth Council to fit teens with “Marijuana Goggles” in order to demonstrate what it is like to drive stoned.

Supposedly, by employing this new technique, kids will learn what it is like to be high and make bad decisions on the road without ever having to actually partake in the substance.

“Anytime you can do an activity — something that’s interactive with them, or something that provides education, that’s great. These actually simulate the loss of some of your cognitive functions,” said Tim Rutherford with NASA.

Drug Policy Alliance To Host The Biennial 2015 International Drug Policy Reform Conference

Category: News | Posted on Mon, September, 28th 2015 by THCFinder

drug policy alliance dea debate aspen ideas festivalWhich states will be next to legalize marijuana? What needs to happen to end mass incarceration? What can be done to pressure the Obama administration and the next President around drug policy and criminal justice reform? What are some solutions to the national overdose crisis that takes more lives than car accidents or gun violence? Why do black people go to jail for drugs at 13 times the rate of whites even though they use and sell drugs at similar rates? What role can faith leaders play in organizing and mobilizing their congregations to end the drug war?

More than 1,200 people will gather to ponder these questions and many more at the International Drug Policy Reform Conference in Arlington, VA November 18-21 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel.

In the past decade, voters and legislators have enacted hundreds of drug policy reforms that reduce the role of criminalization in drug policy. Building on the momentum from these victories, more than 1,200 drug policy experts, health care and drug treatment professionals, elected officials, law enforcement, students, and formerly incarcerated people from around the country and across the world will gather to promote alternatives to the failed war on drugs.

Below is a small sampling of the 50+ panels at the conference. Check in the near future for a full list of panels, including descriptions and speakers: http://www.reformconference.org/program/schedule
