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.

Help stop the abuse of perscription drugs.  There is a new trend in Lawrence.  Six of the top ten drugs used by high school seniors were either perscribed or purchased over the counter.  Check your homes for any unused or outdated medications.  Bring to the Law Enforcement Center at 111 E 11th St. (11th and New Hampshire).  Sponsored by the Douglas County Sherrif's Department, Lawrence Police Department and the DEA.  Officers  will be outside collecting and will safely dispose of these potentially harmful medications.  Let's keep these drugs out of the hands of Lawrence youth.

If you cannot come on October 29th, then follow the Kansas Department of Health and Environment disposal recommendations for pharmaceuticals. Prepare excess medications as follows: crush or dissolve pills in water, coffee, or another liquid. Make a paste of the dissolved pills or liquid medication by adding it to kitty litter or coffee grounds. Put the paste in a closed container, making sure any personal markings are removed. Then put the closed container in the trash.
