Mesa County Safe Kids Class, RSVP Today

Community Class Focuses On Teen Marijuana Use, Free

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office and Crime Stoppers of Mesa County are hosting the first community education event of 2014! The class will cover Teen Marijuana Use part 1, as well as the last section of the Prescription Drugs class (a three part series) from 2013. The class is January 28, 2014, at the Mesa County Central Library, located at: 443 North 6th Street, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Due to seating space, the class is limited to 100 participants, please R.S.V.P. early! There is no charge for this class, but reservations are required and can be made online through Mesa County Safe Kids.

This class will focus on educating parents about the marijuana influences on teens and offer ideas on how to respond to those challenges. These informative classes seek to educate parents about the dangers to teens and trends we are seeing in our community and in the nation. Again, please R.S.V.P. to our free community classes at www.safekidsamerica.org or call Deputy Chad Williams direct at (970)986-1187, for more information.

Media wanting to cover this class are invited and encouraged to show up, with proper permission from the Mesa County Library administration. Deputy Williams is always happy to do on-camera interviews the night of the class or in advance.
