WASAVP identifies legislative priorities

After surveying WASAVP members, the WASAVP Board of Directors identified the following issues as top priorities for their work during the 2012 state legislative session.
1. Prevent liquor privatization and further deregulation.

2. Support designation of all ATOD fees and taxes to go toward enforcement, prevention and treatment in communities, not the general fund.

3. Reclassify medical marijuana so that it may be regulated and sold in pharmacies like other prescription medications.

4. Oppose state and federal budget cuts to community and school-based prevention programs.

The Board also identified issues that will be monitored.
