Epic’s Advocacy Committee recently held two Breakthrough Breakfasts to educate service providers and community members about marijuana and related issues. We would like to thank The Office of Addictions in the Department of Nursing at Southeast Missouri State University for sponsoring both of the breakfast events. We would also like to thank the speakers for these events. In August, Wally Allstun spoke about the general effects of marijuana use and in October, Kevin Glaser and John Payne spoke about legislative issues regarding marijuana and their
viewpoints about legalization. There were 44 people in attendance at the August Breakthrough Breakfast and 36 people attended the October event. Thanks to all for working so hard to educate our community on these important issues.
