PDFNJ Continues to Deliver Drug-Free Messages Virtually During These Difficult Times

I hope that everyone is safe and healthy this week. As with everyone throughout New Jersey, all of us at the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) have had to adapt our way of communicating our messages, and deliver virtual experiences instead of in person events we had planned.  I am excited that even through these difficult times, PDFNJ has been able to reinvent our programs and adapt to make sure our important drug-free communications continue, as they are needed now more than ever.

This Friday, April 3rd was to be the New Jersey Shout Down Drugs Prevention Concert. The concert is a culmination of our Shout Down Drugs music contest that was open to any New Jersey high school individual or group to create and enter original songs with anti-drug messages.  This year we have 13 finalists from 6 different counties throughout the state.  This is Shout Down Drugs 16th year, and while we are disappointed that we are not able to hold the concert as planned, we are excited that we are able to showcase these talented students in an audio show that will be available on ShoutDownDrugs.com at 6pm on April 3rd, and the winners will be announced live on-air on 6:45 pm on 95.9 WRAT.  Our sponsors of the event, 95.9 WRAT and the New Jersey Broadcasters Association have worked with us to ensure that these talented students are able to get the recognition they deserve and their music is able to be shared. Be sure to tune in.

Additionally, another event that will be taking place virtually is the Drugs Don’t Work in New Jersey webinar on April 14th. This free statewide webinar will discuss how employers should address medical marijuana in the workplace. It will examine recent New Jersey Supreme Court cases involving medical marijuana, and knowing what effect these court cases will have on the workplace. Stephen E. Trimboli Esq., of Trimboli & Prusinowski, LLC, will be presenting these Supreme Court decisions and their meaning for New Jersey businesses. It is important that business leaders stay well-informed on this issue as the use of medical marijuana continues to increase. Click here to register for this webinar.

As we continue to navigate through these times, please feel free to reach out to us and visit our website DrugFreeNJ.org for valuable resources and communications.

Stay Well.
