Creating Family Leaders
Empowering those having experiences with a loved ones marijuana use to advocate for healthy drug policies.
Family-First. Science Based. Common Sense. Accountability.
Educate. Enlighten. Empower. Engage.
When someone you love is addicted to drugs or alcohol, it can be hard to know what to do or how to help. Addiction is often called a “family disease” because those closest to the addicted person usually suffer the most. This experience teaches us many things.
We know our world is changing, but that doesn’t mean we need to live with the ill effects of a culture of readily available drugs. We do not have to accept the desensitization to the harms of drugs with a growing popularity of mind-altering substances.
We have learned that today’s marijuana is not what most parents think it is.
We are a diverse group of parents and family members with one goal in common–to make sure our lived experiences don’t happen to others.
