Gov. Neil Abercrombie and the state legislature have released $400,000 in grant funds for the Hawaii Meth Project.
The funds will be used to educate Hawaii’s young people about the risks and dangers of methamphetamine through online and direct outreach in schools and community events.
“We must empower our keiki to be wise and responsible with their lives,” Gov. Abercrombie said. “The Hawaii Meth Project provides them with the education they need in our fight against meth.”
The program was launched in Hawaii in 2009. It has five affiliates across the United States.
