Parents will have an opportunity to learn about illegal and legal substances being marketed to their kids when Lynn Riemer, President of Act on Drugs, Inc., speaks in Brighton on April 3rd, 2012. Riemer will explain synthetic marijuana products being marketed as incense, how the potency of today’s marijuana has increased, health concerns about energy drinks, bath salts that are being inhaled and injected, and the dangerous abuse of inhalants in everyday household products. From alcohol to prescription drugs, methamphetamine to “Ecstasy”, parents will find out how to detect and prevent substance abuse.
Riemer has developed an outstanding reputation as a trainer on the issues related to drugs. She talks to students, communities, companies, and governmental agencies on drug awareness, recognition and prevention. As an experienced chemist and prior member of the North Metro Drug Task Force in Colorado , her life experiences bring a vivid face to the drug problem facing society today.
This event will be at the School District 27J Training Room at 80 South 8th Avenue from 6:00-8:30 p.m. Sponsored by the Adams County Prevention Partnership, it is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
