  • NY Marijuana Abuse

    Marijuana is very easy to get and the biggest part of the marijuana that comes into New York City gets there by airfreight or by vehicles like trucks and automobiles coming from Canada, Florida or from the southwestern U.S. Marijuana also gets snuck into New York City by commercial airline and overnight package services.

  • Alcoholism in New York

    Around 1,500 people in New York are killed every year from alcohol. Thousands of other people end up in the hospital for alcohol related reasons. Their Health Department reported that excessive alcohol consumption was responsible for over 70,000 ER visits among New York City adults just last year. To get the serious message out to people last year a subway campaign was devised and signs were put up throughout the Holiday Season in English and Spanish reminding people just how serious alcohol consumption can be. Pictures on the ads reflected the words written on signs which included; Two Drinks Ago You Would Have Walked Away, Two Drinks Ago You Could Still Get Yourself Home.

    The Health Department released a health bulletin at the same time to help people measure their own use of alcohol in order to prevent overuse of their own alcohol consumption. The health bulletin said "Excessive Drinking Is Dangerous. Stop drinking while you're still thinking". New York City's Health Bulletin not only offered measurable guidelines as far as, how much is too much, but also offered resources for anyone in need of help.
