I recently attended the N. Hawaii Drug Free Coalition meeting in Kohala. I have attended a few meetings in the past and it seems that we still have committed people in our communities who care to put some time into solving this problem.

As in the past the meeting was a review of individual problems and no real solutions.

I feel that our communities are more aware of the problem, which makes it easier for families with abusers better equiped to cope with their problems.

I feel that it still takes more education for both sides of the drug problem, both the abusers and their families and communities which they effect.

So I feel we need more education, and more ENFORCEMENT! We need a constant flow of events which, number one get the families out and having fun, and also give our educators and social services groups the opportunity to show case themselves and hopefully help someone. Again we have to provide more healthy alternatives for our communities and show them that there are better ways to spend their free time.

Thanks for your efforts in trying to make Hawaii a healthier place.
