I have been wanting to talk about this for awhile now so here it goes. Young women are so vulnerable and susceptible to sexual assault particularly the younger they are. Things happen particularly when there is alcohol involved. Most will not tell anyone. If they tell a friend or group of friends they will rarely be believed. They then carry that shame and pain with them for the rest of their lives. We must, as the adults in their lives, talk to them about this early and often so that they know they can and should defend themselves. Teaching them self-defense and letting them know it is okay to use it are paramount. Now the other side of the coin is to talk to our vulnerable young men as well. They can also be victims. Their lives can also be ruined by false accusations!! This is a multifaceted topic that needs to be addressed and rarely is!!I have been wanting to talk about this for awhile now so here it goes.

With Substance Abuse Prevention Week, Marijuana should be tops on the list here in Anderson Township. This isn't the pot of the 60's or even the 90's. The percentage of THC in Dab pens with the concentrates is super high and can be as high as 80-90%. Paranoia and mental disorders can be a part of this picture for our teens. Learn more!! ...
