Verde Valley AZ (February 19, 2013) – The February 28th MATFORCE Lunch ‘n Learn will address marijuana use among our teens. The recently completed Arizona Youth Survey shows that teen use of marijuana is on the rise in Yavapai County. The survey revealed that those teens who reported using marijuana in the last 30-days rose 18% among 10th grade students and 35% among 12th grade students.
The Lunch ‘n Learn will be presented by Sheila Polk, Yavapai County Attorney, who is also the Founder and Co-Chair of MATFORCE and Merilee Fowler, the organization’s Executive Director. Presenters will address these questions: What is marijuana? Is it safe to use? What has been the impact of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act and what is its future?
The Lunch ‘n Learn will be held on Thursday, February 28, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the Board of Supervisors Room, Yavapai County Administration Building, 1015 S. Fair St., Prescott and teleconferenced to the Yavapai County Cottonwood Annex, 10 South 6th St., Cottonwood. It is free and open to the public. Brown-bag lunches are welcome.
