SPIFFY Coalition and Hampshire HOPE to Host Policy Discussion on Prevention

The SPIFFY Coalition and Hampshire HOPE are joining forces to engage community leaders in the development of strategic policies that will impact youth access to alcohol, marijuana and other drugs in our local area. 

This is the first in a series of discussions designed to bring together policymakers in Hampshire County to begin the work of assessing needs and identifying next steps. D.J. Wilson from the Massachusetts Municipal Association will demonstrate how local tobacco regulations can serve as a model to prevent youth access to alcohol, marijuana and other drugs.

Friday, December 11, 2015 

11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
