Community Meeting on the Legalization of Recreational Marijuana (Fri. 14 Dec, 2018 9:00 am - 10:00 am)

Scarsdale Drug And Alcohol Task Force To Hold Community Meeting Discussing Legalization Of Recreational Marijuana

The Scarsdale Drug and Alcohol Task Force (DATF) will hold a community meeting on Friday, December 14th at 9:00 AM in rooms 170-172 at Scarsdale High School. All community residents are invited and encouraged to attend this timely forum on a significant public policy issue.
The featured speaker is Luke Niforatos, Senior Policy Advisor at Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM). Mr. Niforatos has devoted his career to non-profit community healthcare and lived in Colorado during and after the legalization of recreational marijuana. The mission of SAM is to align marijuana policies with reputable science and public health principles using a common sense, bipartisan approach.

Ten states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes, and the issue is under discussion in more states, including New York. States with full legalization are assessing the tax revenue, incarceration rates, health care costs and incidence of marijuana-related accidents and hospitalizations in the aftermath of legalization. They are also examining the effects of legalizing marijuana on youth substance use. Mr. Niforatos will discuss these findings and the political and commercial landscape that is making marijuana a potential Big Tobacco playing field. Public policy options will be presented, and the audience is invited to engage in a discussion on these issues, particularly with regard to potential effects on adolescents.

The Scarsdale DATF is a community coalition dedicated to preventing youth substance use. For more information about the DATF, visit Facebook at Scarsdale DrugAlcohol TaskForce, or find the DATF on Instagram at scarsdale_datf, or on the web at scarsdaledatf.com.

TOPIC: Reading the Tanach like an Egyptologist
Egypt plays a major role in the history of the Jewish people. The earliest European interest in Egypt in the nineteenth century came from a desire to understand which episodes in the Hebrew Bible could be historically verified. This illustrated talk looks at what the Biblical writer knew about Egypt in the time of the patriarchs, the Exodus, and the prophets. It shows how a modern, scientific knowledge of Egyptian texts and archaeology help us to understand the composition of the Biblical text and how the Bible reflects history.
