Colorado Elks Association



Drug Awareness Program

Drug Awareness Education Committee Purpose: To implement the Grand Lodge Drug Awareness program in Colorado and to exercise all means possible to discourage the use of drugs by the youth of our state

The Elks started the Drug Awareness Program in 1983 with a resolution: "That the Elks affirm and support the concept of NO USE OF ILLICIT DRUGS EVER AND THAT WE OPPOSE THE LEGALIZATION OF ANY DRUGS INCLUDING MARIJUANA, OTHER THAN BY AUTHORIZED RESEARCH OR SCIENTIFIC STUDY."

The Elks National Drug Awareness Program strives to teach all children and parents about the dangers of illegal drug use and prevent the abuse of legalized and prescription drugs.  As the largest volunteer drug awareness program in the United States, the program relies on state, district and Lodge volunteers to promote a drug-free lifestyle.  By taking pride in America's communities and youth, the program takes action against youth drug use through education and inspiration.
