Background and Objective: Marijuana is the most commonly used recreational drug among breastfeeding women. With legalization of marijuana in some states and a 1990 study in which authors documented psychomotor defecits in infants breastfed by mothers using marijuana, there is a need for information on potential exposure to the breastfed infant.
When a San Diego-based mother posted an emergency alert on Nextdoor, a community discussion app, she hoped a Good Samaritan could help, according to court filings. Her son was hysterical after losing a flash drive with his homework near the local McDonald's, she wrote, uploading a photo along with the message. A neighbor quickly replied, explaining that the chewing-gum-sized object in the picture was not a flash drive: It was a Juul vaping device.
MPI will partner with Urban core youth for a few days of drug discussions. Each year in July and August, youth from the group have a chance to learn about the impacts drug/alcohol use have on the community.
Urban Core serves as a bridge to a better life for young adults ages 18-26. We provide paid job training, support services, and a second chance to earn a high school diploma, while simultaneously offering a variety of professional services to the community which helps train and employ our Corpsmembers.
Youth gain job skills on environmental, construction, and community projects. Whether planting a tree, removing graffiti, working in the San Diego River, improving a park, or rehabilitating low-income homes, our Corpsmembers improve themselves while improving the San Diego region.
MPI will be conducting a training for members of the San Diego County Children, Youth and Families (CYF) – Cadre meeting on Thursday July 12th.
Youth and Families section of Behavioral Health Services aids children and adolescents who are emotionally disturbed, and their families. CYF offers a wide variety of services, from early intervention to residential services. All services provided are oriented to meet the unique linguistic and cultural needs of the public to be served.
