SAM affiliates sweep Missouri!

SAM is pleased to team with more than 50 drug-prevention groups and agencies in Missouri to present the Missouri Marijuana Prevention Tour!

Hitting the road May 5-9 with Missouri preventionists — five cities in as many days — are Dr. Christian Thurstone, a SAM board member, and his wife, longtime journalist Christine Tatum, who works with drug-prevention organizations to help them develop more effective messaging for public awareness and education.

Missouri community coalitions and prevention advocates — including the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in the St. Louis area, a SAM affiliate — are banding together to launch the “Think Again” campaign — a statewide outreach aimed at educating the public about the harms of marijuana use.

“When it comes to marijuana, we shouldn’t necessarily believe everything we think,” said Amy Weiland, a counselor at Crossroads, a sobriety program for people and their families with offices in Chesterfield, Columbia and Kansas City.
