We explore opportunities for policy development, implementation and enforcement to address the following three focus areas:
House Parties: the majority of youth in Novato report that they access alcohol either at their own home or in the home of a friend. One strategy for addressing this issue is the increased visibility of enforcement of Novato’s Social Host Ordinance.
Alcohol Outlet Density: Novato has an over-saturation of alcohol outlets in the downtown census tract, which can lead to adverse health outcomes
Marijuana: the team is currently researching community-based marijuana prevention strategies, and aims to focus on the notable difference in perception of harm between alcohol and marijuana.
