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.

Teens see prescription drugs as 'safe' and easy to obtain. If you have prescription drugs in your house, it is a good idea to be aware of what you have and keep them away from the teens who live with you or visit your home. Teens using prescription pain killers, Adderall, Sudafed, and other 'legal' drugs is a growing trend in Lawrence. There is big money in it for those who score from any medicine cabinet. Some Lawrence youth are having 'skittles' parties where they throw all the pills in a bowl and dig in!
