Let Arizona's local Partnership for a Drug Free America
know that it is time to get their priorities straight.
The Center for the Disease Control Reports Prescription Deaths are an Epidemic in America.
USA Today Reports prescription drugs are the biggest cause of overdose deaths.
ABC15 Reports Arizona is the 6th Highest State for Precription Drug Abuse:
The Arizona Youth Survey, conducted by the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission, shows that prescription drug abuse and overdose has fallen by 5-10% since 2010, the year we obtained medicinal rights for marijuana in Arizona.
This also shows a drop in binge drinking and alcohol related deaths, as statistics are showing nationally in states that have allowed medicinal or legal marijuana use. http://www.azcjc.gov/ACJC.Web/sac/AYSReports/2012/2012%20Arizona%20Youth%20Survey%20Profile%20Report.pdf
Contact Keep AZ Drug Free and tell them it is time to focus their attention on the substances that are killing Arizona's children- Alcohol and Prescription Drug Abuse.
Marijuana never took a life on record. It's time they got their priorities straight.
