    Tips for Parents: Have a Safe and Legal Party  
    Parents can have the best intentions when they allow their teen to have a party in their home, but permitting underage drinking is a BIG mistake. Teen drinking is illegal and unsafe. Allowing teens to drink in your home can result in stiff penalties, including up to 30 days in jail and/or a $1000 fine. In addition, parents can be sued if they allow drinking and a teen is injured in any way (www.socialhostlaw.wordpress.com).  
 
  Establish rm rules that alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs are not allowed!  
  Planning the Party  
 
  • Ask your teen who is attending the party.
  • Limit the number of attendees by making the event invitation-only.
  • When using social networking sites, e.g. Facebook, to create invitations, be sure to make the party "private" so only invitees can see the details of the party.
  • Put your phone number on the invitation and welcome calls from parents.
  • Provide plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as activities, such as dancing and games, to keep teens busy.
 
 
  At the Party  
 
  • Define a set area for the party, have enough
  •  
        chaperones to provide supervision, and  
        monitor the party frequently.  
     
  • Lock up alcohol and medications to avoid access.
  •  
     
    • Restrict entry to the party. Have those attending enter through one door.
    • Let attendees know that if they leave the party, they can't come back.
    • Don't allow water bottles or other outside beverages so that alcohol can't be brought into the party.
    • Keep backpacks and coats in a separate area to prevent teens from bringing in alcohol or other drugs.
    • Be prepared to contact parents if an attendee appears to be under the influence or brings alcohol or other drugs to the party.

    A Research-Based Campaign to Educate All Sectors of the
    Community About the Dangers of Youth Marijuana Use
        While there's much talk about medical marijuana and the legalization of marijuana for "recreational" purposes in the media and in public discussion, there seems to be very little focus on the many negative consequences of youth use. LET'S START THAT CONVERSATION IN OUR COMMUNITIES!!    
     
        Mobilizing Michigan … was created by the Chippewa Valley Coalition for Youth and Families, a school-community coalition in central Macomb County Michigan and a Drug Free Communities grantee, and the Macomb County Community Mental Health - Office of Substance Abuse (MCOSA).    
     
        The Mobilizing Michigan – Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign Tool Kit, has multiple components intended to provide community coalitions, schools, agencies, churches with the tools to educate all sectors of the community – youth, parents, other community members, school staff, law enforcement, government, the faith community, business, youth-serving and other agencies, etc. about the dangers of youth marijuana use. Data and other Information included in the Mobilizing Michigan… Tool Kit is based on research from the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Health, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, etc    
     
        All Mobilizing Michigan…Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign Tool Kit components can be accessed free-of-charge at www. mcosa.net or cvcoalition.org.

    We had over 300 attendees for the Coalition-sponsored conference, Current Drug Use Trends – Implications for Our Youth on March 8th at the Macomb Intermediate School District. Dr. Kevin Sabet provided the national perspective on the issues and a Teen Panel offered the observations of teens. The conference also provided a huge launch for the Coalition's Mobilizing Michigan - Protecting Our Kids from Marijuana Campaign, an effort to inform all sectors of the community about the dangers of youth marijuana use.
