Drug Demand Reduction program

The Tri-State Young Marines welcomed the Brooke-Hancock Family Resource Network Advocates for Substance Abuse Prevention April 18. ASAP representatives gave a presentation on the consequences of drug-impaired behavior, using “marijuana goggles” to simulate the effects of marijuana on judgment and cognitive abilities. The Young Marines are required to receive a minimum of three hours of Drug Demand Reduction programming each quarter. The unit meets from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2716 located on Main St., Weirton. For information on ASAP, contact Coordinator Mary Ball at (304) 748-7850.
