The Morris Area Coalition For Education and Positive Choices is taking Morris County by storm with initiatives to arm the community with facts and information to fight against drug and alcohol abuse. The coalition is a proactive team of elected officials, law enforcement, educational leaders and concerned citizens, who are up to date on the latest crazes and abuses that are plaguing our children.

The most recent trend in teenage abuse includes vaping and the use of e-cigarettes. Teens often do not consider how  their current behaviors can impact future health. The goal of the coalition is prevention through education and informing the public on the dangers of these negative behaviors. Today, with social media, the drug and alcohol abuse problem, and new ways of getting high have become a national crisis. What many people don't realize is that the vaporizer pens are becoming the new way for drug users not only to get high, but to do it discreetly, right under the nose of police, parents, and teachers. Vaping can pose many risks, and kids being as creative as they are, will often place synthetics and liquids in device cartridges and inhale substances which cannot be differentiated from nicotine and marijuana. Worst of all, it could be a deadly concoction of toxic chemicals often obtained on the internet.These vapors can cause chronic bronchitis, compromise immune systems and wound healing, harm the brain and cause moth and lung cell damage.

The Morris Area Coalition for Education and Positive Choices, in conjunction with the Hanover Township Police Department and the Morris County Sheriff and Prosecutors Offices, along with support from East Hanover Mayor Joseph Pannullo, and Chief of Police Chris Cannizzo and the East Hanover Police Department along with Florham Park Mayor Mark Taylor, and the Florham Park Police Department  invites the public to attend this noteworthy session. This is the best opportunity for parents and children to attend an outstanding informative conversation with veritable facts that can change lives forever.  This master class will be held at on  Tuesday, February 13, at seven in the evening at Memorial Junior School in Whippany.
