DEA Position on Marijuana

File Resource Download

Marijuana is properly categorized under Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), 21 U.S.C. § 801, et seq. The clear weight of the currently available evidence supports this classification, including evidence that smoked marijuana has a high potential for abuse, has no accepted medicinal value in treatment in the United States, and evidence that there is a general lack of accepted safety for its use even under medical supervision.

Faith-Based Security Strategy and Security Guidelines for Houses of Worship

File Resource Download

Dear Interfaith Community,

 

The Office of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor along with the One Voice partnership has proactively addressed common issues facing our community.  Over the past few years, we have addressed prescription and drug abuse, suicide, as well as discussing strategies to address other common problems here in Hunterdon.

Today, I want to inform you that my office will be putting forth an initiative of preparedness for Faith-Based Organizations, Security for Houses of Worship and Community Centers.

In light of the continuing turmoil abroad, we are taking steps to be better prepared here in Hunterdon to promote a safe community and react to incidents appropriately. 

Though there are no specific or credible threats towards the State of New Jersey, we are not immune to what has been occurring overseas and acts of violence in the United States.

Attached is the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness Faith-Based Security Strategy and Security Guidelines for Houses of Worship. Please take the time to review this material and meet with your faith councils to discuss planning and implementing a strategy to identify and mitigate security concerns.

In the near future, the Prosecutor's Office will offer training seminars on Faith-Based Security Strategy and Guidelines.

Anthony P. Kearns
Prosecutor, Hunterdon County

Parents Are Unaware and Underestimate Their Influence

File Resource Download

Many parents are not aware of the dangers of teen prescription drug abuse. Teens say their parents are not discussing these dangers with them, even though research shows that parental disapproval is a powerful way to keep teens from using drugs. And parents are in a unique position to dramatically reduce teen access to prescription drugs because they are found in the home.

Treatment for Alcohol Problems: Finding and Getting Help

File Resource Download

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), part of the National Institutes of Health, has developed a guide to help individuals and families understand available treatment options. Treatment for Alcohol Problems: Finding and Getting Help covers the latest research-based treatments and what to consider when choosing among them. 

An estimated 17 million Americans currently have an alcohol use disorder. However, research suggests that only a fraction of people with alcohol problems seek professional help. No matter how severe the problem may seem, most people with AUD can benefit from some form of treatment.   

This new resource helps physicians start a conversation with their patients about a wide variety of treatment options, including effective but underutilized approaches.  

The guide provides detailed descriptions of the two types of professionally-led treatments shown to benefit people with alcohol use disorders, which are:

  •          Established behavioral treatments which focus on changing drinking behaviors
  •          Medications, which are often coupled with behavioral treatment 

The guide also includes information about mutual-support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous. 

In addition to the information on treatment options, the guide offers patients advice on when and how to get help including:

  •          Signs of an alcohol problem
  •          Questions patients can ask their doctors to help guide their treatment choices
  •          Advice for friends and family
  •          New medications in the pipeline
