As you know, 4/20 is recognized by many as Marijuana Day – a day to smoke and get high. Here in Westchester, we choose to celebrate 4/20 as Marijuana Prevention Day. We reclaimed the day and declared it - Healthy Teen Brain Day.
The New York State STOP-DWI Association, Inc. is comprised of the duly-appointed STOP-DWI Coordinator of each county and the City of New York. Individually and collectively, the coordinators carry out their statutory mandate to reduce the incidence of deaths and injuries caused by drunk and/or drug-impaired drivers through the development and administration of plans combining strategies for increased enforcement, prosecution, adjudication, probation, rehabilitation, education, and public information. The Association provides a forum for the exchange of ideas as well as the creation, development and administration of new and innovative approaches for dealing with the drinking and/or drug-impaired driver. It also serves as a vehicle to advocate for public policy to further the goals of the NYS STOP-DWI Program -- a Statewide initiative funded wholly by fines collected from convicted drivers, and which has received Presidential and Congressional recognition for its innovative self-sufficient approach.
The Association acts as a resource to the county programs by providing a website and Facebook page as well as establishing list serves for county coordinators and county prosecutors to facilitate real-time communication regarding legal strategies and best practices.
In addition our Association member dues help to provide school and community groups with cutting-edge educational materials through our website including a Vimeo channel with videos and public service announcements, Power Point presentations and access to the latest research in the field.
 Formerly, the New York State STOP-DWI Coordinators Association.
