I-1183: expectation vs. reality

Earlier this month, a group of 23 people representing NE Seattle participated in the annual Washington State Prevention Summit in Yakima.  Three student teams were part of the NE Seattle delegation representing Eckstein Middle School, Nathan Hale High School, and Roosevelt High School.  Youth and adults learned about the latest substance abuse trends and how to develop and conduct prevention activities in their communities.

Some youth and adult workshop handouts are now available through the Prevention Summit website.

Among the handouts are ones from an adult workshops about the effects of Initiative 1183 that privatized the sale of spirits/hard alcohol and deregulated other aspects of our state's liquor system.  Here are a few of the slides from the presentation.

More information about the implementation of I-1183 is available on the Washington State Liquor Control Board website.  The Proposed Rules page includes information about defining "trade area" and the Recently Adopted Rules page includes new rules related to I-1183 including the delivery of spirits/hard alcohol to homes.
