Alcohol

Alcohol is the most used drug by Canton youth and youth across the Commonwealth*.


Annual Sticker Shock Campaign

CAASA teams up with local Canton package stores to raise public awareness about the minimum drinking age law and to discourage adults from providing alcohol to minors during Thanksgiving week when alcohol sales are brisk and alcohol related crime is high.  Students affix hundreds of stickers on bags and hang up posters in each participating package store.  Posters are also hung at Middle and High School.
