“Street Drugs and Homelessness” will be the topic when the Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness hosts a community meeting on Zoom next Monday, January 25.
The meeting will address reports that there has been an increasing number of homeless individuals who are using drugs, along with evidence of drug dealing, especially meth.
Amanda Cowan, outreach director for Clare/Matrix, an organization focused on substance abuse disorders, will speak about drugs, their effects and research-proven treatments to overcome addiction. (For CTN readers on the Rosebud and Lakota Reservations, where meth is also a serious problem, you are welcome to join this virtual meeting.)
Additionally, Los Angeles Deputy City Attorney Veronica DeLaCruz will discuss the legal aspects of drug sales and possession in California, including pending laws and orders and their implications for people experiencing homelessness.
