"P.  Out of this appropriation, $25,000 the second year from the general fund is designated to support the State Council working the the Virginia Alcohol and Beverage Control to identify the current substance-abuse prevention and intervention programs including programs that address recreational and illicit drug use at colleges and universities.  A list of best practices will be complied to be included in a plan for Virginia's colleges and universities to implement.  This may include, but not be limited to, student-initiated or student-led peer-to-peer education programs and college recovery programs.  A final report shall be made to the Virginia Commission on Youth by November 1, 2017."


(This amendment would provide $25,000 GF to implement a recommendation from the Commission on Youth (COY) for the State Council to work with the Virginia Alcohol and Beverage Control to identify the current recreational substance-use awareness and education programs at colleges and universities. SCHEV is to compile a list of best practices to be included in a plan for implementation at Virginia's campuses in order to address the increased use of recreational drugs by young persons. A final report is due to COY prior to the 2018 General Assembly Session.)
