Addictions & the Illinois Legislature (Illinois Family Spotlight #339)

Monte Larrick is joined by Shane Hartman, the executive director of the Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems (ILCAAAP). Springfield has made slaves of so many Illinois citizens, through the legalization of recreational marijuana and betting on anything. ILCAAAP is working to combat the evil coming out of our legislature through educating Illinois youth about the dangers of drugs, gambling and liquor.

“The main thing is to let the kids know you care.” Hartman stated when asked what is the most persuasive argument to reach kids in our age of social media. “You care about their future, you care about where they’re at right now. . .social media presents a picture that’s not quite true. There’s a lot of filters and suggestions that ‘if I just do this or take these steps I’ll be popular and have lots of followers. . .but kids are starting to see through that.”
