Fair Sentencing Act On August 3, 2012 the Fair Sentencing Act was passed by Congress. This act reduces debates and arguments about jail time or fines based on the amount or type of the drug. Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment Lafayette Drug Abuse
Treatment Center This organization offers inpatient centers and outpatient programs. Here, there are highly trained individuals who are helpful and reasonable to their patients with illegal drug addictions. Tippecanoe County Drug Task Force This is an organization consisting of Lafayette, West Lafayette, Purdue campus, Indiana state police departments, and Tippecanoe county sheriff's department. These law enforcement officers ban together to suppress and control illegal drug use. A Call to Action Drug abuse is a common problem in our community and it is important to be well informed about it. Now it's our turn to go out into the community and fix this growing problem. By donating time and money to organizations who work to eradicate this problem we can do our part. Also, not buying into media stereotypes and movie images is an important way to show that we will not stand for the use of illegal drugs in our community. "Heroin." The Partnership at Drugfreeorg.
