STOP Meth Now

You may have heard of the drug, methamphetamine; but you may not know its devastating effects on individuals, families, and communities. The Stop Meth NOW! educational presentation presented by Illinois State Police Special Agents discuss the most dangerous things about methamphetamine, also known as meth. This educational program will make you aware how dangerous this drug is, how easily meth can be produced and the hazards of meth waste. An individual does not need any special laboratory or degree, they just need a few items and the process begins.

It is one of CPASA’s priorities to educate the community on suspicious purchases, signs, safety procedures, and contact information. These preventative measures will help keep meth and its effects out of Bureau and Putnam Counties.
