Town hall meeting set for Thursday in Tahoe City on drug use

Staff report

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — A "North Tahoe Town Hall Meeting" for local parents will take place Thursday, Sept. 29, from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Tahoe City Public Utility board room at 221 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City.

"Parents are invited to participate in this conversational meeting to openly share some of the issues they are dealing with raising tweens and teens in North Lake Tahoe, especially in and around community events," according to a news release from the Tahoe Truckee Future Without Drug Dependence.

The group is expected to provide residents and parents a short education on prescription drugs, marijuana edibles and Molly (which is slang for the drug ecstasy/MDMA).

"A brainstorming session will follow to come up with ways to address community policies and procedures that may help reduce the risk of teens getting and using drugs and alcohol," according to the news release. "Additionally, the meeting will help parents and youth-serving organizations identify individual actions they can take to help keep all teens safe."

The event is free, and everyone is welcome. Light refreshments and Spanish translation will be provided.

"It takes a village to raise a child — please join us in supporting our young people and making this the healthiest place to raise our kids," said River Coyote, director for Tahoe Truckee Future Without Drug Dependence.
