Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness Month

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 3/14/2017


The Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution proclaiming March as Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness Month. This is the nation's fast-growing drug problem, and Marin County is deeply impacted. Since 2009, more people in Marin have died from accidental drug poisonings than from motor vehicle crashes.


The Board adopted the resolution and commended Health and Human Services staff and all those involved in the RxSafe Marin initiative.
