Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grass roots organization dedicated to the effects of the drug war and drug war policies, specifically policies which harm students. The focus of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) is treating drug offenses, and drug policies primarily as a health concern verses a criminal matter, while also teaching students about activism and how to be politically involved. WCU SSDP is helping to promote many of these policies to our local community here in West Chester. One of the many policies and pillars of SSDP, as well as a focus of WCU SSDP, is harm-reduction education. These are practices that, when applied, will help reduce the harm of drugs and alcohol in our community while still providing a safe and fun learning environment. In an effort to provide a safe and entertaining option to the normal weekend party scene in West Chester, SSDP will be hosting an 18+ show at The Note Saturday, Feb. 5. Doors at 8p.m. and the show begins at 9p.m. The show will include a local West Chester band, Your Electric Instinct, to provide “thumping electric drum and bass rock.” They will open for Roots of Creation: “The Reggae-Rock Dubtronica Hybrid.” This show will help educate students about harm-reduction practices and ways they can help to educate the rest of the WCU community. Tickets are currently on sale online for $8 at www.thenote.tickets.musictoday.com, or in person. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets and more information. Tickets will sell for $10 at the door. Come enjoy a great night of dancing, music, crazy light shows, and education with SSDP and Roots of Creation at the Note, Saturday Feb. 5.
