National Families in Action is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that was founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1977. The organization obtained the nation’s first state laws banning the sale of drug paraphernalia. It led a national effort to help parents replicate Georgia’s laws in other states to prevent the marketing of drugs and drug use to children and helped them form parent groups to protect children’s health.

Clicking on any yellow category accesses all summaries published under that category. Pages across the top provide in-depth analyses of key issues (Reports, Commentary) and tools (Fact Sheets, Infographics, Tool Kits) to educate leaders about various aspects of this complex and poorly understood issue.

Colorado 
Smart Colorado is the only non-profit organization focused on protecting the health, safety and well-being of Colorado youth as marijuana becomes increasingly available & commercialized. Great Information on the devastating impact legalizing pot has had in Colorado & surrounding state. 
  The challenges kids and families face today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures. It is extremely important to work together to protect the kids in our community. The average age a kid will first try drugs is 13. Studies indicate that people who reach 21 without engaging in destructive behaviors are likely to never do so, which is why we passionately educate about current trends, warning signs, and the long-term impact of destructive behaviors. We believe proactive prevention on the part of kids, families, and communities is the answer to long-term success.
