In 2014, the city of Vancouver passed an ordinance prohibiting the sale of drug paraphernalia in stores where minors can enter. PREVENT! and STASHA youth provided data, educational resources and testimony at the Vancouver City Council Public Hearing about the proposed new law. In 2014, PREVENT! secured a full sponsorship from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office to fund the Teens Care Too at Clark College. ACES club at Clark College and STASHA planned and led the fourth biennial event. The coalition held two drug take back events this year at 4 sites, collected over 2207 pounds of pills. PREVENT! collaborated with three other substance abuse prevention coalitions within the county (West Van for Youth, Battle Ground Prevent Together, Washougal United) to plan a leader event designed to educate community members about the strategic prevention framework and effective prevention strategies.
