We have changed our name from the NEW TRADITION COALITION to DRAW THE LINE LAWRENCE so it better fits our purpose and mission. We call on all community members to come together and DRAW THE LINE on underage drinking and drug use for a healthier and safer place to live.

Times are changing and so are the opportunities to get high these days. Do you wonder what's out there? Are kids really selling their ADD prescriptions at school? Is pot that much stronger than it used to be? Is it grown in basements and homes here in Lawrence? Is my own medicine cabinet a target for teen drug abuse? Do kids get high off of over the counter cough medicine? What kinds of things do kids use to inhale to get high? What are 'skittles'? The number one deterrent for kids doing drugs is parent influence and we need to know the facts. Our children are 50% LESS likely to use if we talk with them, educate and monitor their behavior. How do we start the discussion without knowing the subject? The link below is a table will help you better understand the effects of drugs, what they look like, and how they are used. Share this with your child. It won't teach them to do drugs, it will teach them what drugs can do to them. It will help them be aware and knowledgeable about what's out there - in their world.
