Street Drugs and Driving, What You Need to Know.  As legal marijuana spreads and  the opioid epidemic rages on, the number of drugged  drivers killed in car crashes is rising dramatically. Because of this, NHTSA is making the drug-impaired-driving problem a top national priority. Since recreational marijuana was legalized in Colorado, marijuana related traffic deaths increased  151%  while  all  Colorado  traffic  deaths  increased  35%. This workshop will  provide valuable training to  help  identify  legal  and  illicit substances of abuse, how they are used, the effect of illicit drugs on the user, traffic safety data, the connection between drugs and impaired driving, and provide an understanding of how drug use affects all of us.


Lynn  Riemer Founder and President of ACT on Drugs, Inc., a  Non-Profit organization,   provides  local,   regional  and   national   substance   abuse education for professionals about addictive and psychoactive substances, both legal and illegal, which are available in their community.
