INFO: An interesting study about the effects of methamphetamine residues in waste waters on the ecosystems and particularly on fishes, was recently published by the University of South Bohemia. The authors reported a modification of the natural behavior of the fishes, similar to an addiction if compared to the human effects. This opened the doors to more in-depth general researches on drug pollution consequences on ecosystems.
These data, published in French on 7 August 2021, are from an article of Boulman Ciara in:
Meanwhile, on July 23rd, the Say No To Drugs Team was very active to inform the youth and the citizens of Prague (Praha) on the harmful effects of drug use. To be more efficient they shared the locations: I.P. Pavlova and Andel City Centre to reach more people and better spread the educative message. Some 4200 booklets The Truth About Drugs were handed-out!
They continued their drug information actions on 29 July, now in Pilsen (or Plzen) Centre, where they distributed 1800 booklets. The town is located at the confluence of four rivers, in the southwest of Prague and east-northeast of Nuremberg.
The Team had several exchanges with youngsters eager to better understand why drugs such as marihuana and cannabis derivatives are dangerous when data are circulating about their inocuity.
The Team met also two teachers from another close-by city who were interested to have drug prevention lectures made to their classes. So, appointments were taken. Another good event!
The next distributions were organized in the center of Brno, the 3rd biggest town of the country, a jewel of the Czech Republic. Brno is also the birthplace of the great writer Milan Kundera. The Team started on 27 July and distributed 1600 booklets and on August 3rd. The team distributed some 1400 booklets to the passers-by and many of them who wanted to get more data about the drugs were referred to the website.
The teams, on August 8th, moved to the Zlin City Center they had not visited since long. Despite a rainy day, they were able to distribute some 1400 booklets to passers-by, shops, library and an institute. They were asked for help by a mother whose son is addicted to Crystal Meth. They provided her with the needed information making the mother very glad to see a possible recovery for her son.
The same day, another team was in Vilanec where they delivered an interactive lecture on the harmfulness of drug use to 20 persons as part of their Communication Training. The result was that some attendees wanted to help the Team in the future.
But the surprise of the day was that a lady part of the lecture (and of the Training), recognized her feedback and her writings from 5-6 years ago when she attended a similar lecture and she remembered very well the presentation she attended at that time. Find more on:
