Marijuana Penalties

The Citizens Against Substance Abuse Coalition collaborates with the Wolcott Police Department. During this past prom and graduation season this alliance worked together by distributing informational cards on the alcohol and marijuana penalties, increasing law enforcement, and educating the community on the dangers of underage drinking.

In Wolcott, alcohol is the most widely abused substance among teens, making underage drinking one of the biggest public health concerns. Risky behaviors among youth increase during prom, graduation, and summer which makes it essential to talk with your teens about alcohol and drug use.
