HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaii Meth Project has taken its message of prevention to the Hawaii State Capitol this legislative session with works of art created by students across the state.

Using the Hawaii Meth Project's prevention message, "Not Even Once" as the central theme, more than 20 middle and high school students put their paintbrushes, colored markers, pencils, and creativity to work to show their concern for the danger and devastation caused by crystal methamphetamine, more commonly known as "Ice."

The public is invited to attend the exhibit opening Thursday at 2:30 p.m. Chamber level, turn-around entrance next to security office.

The Hawaii Meth Project is a non-profit organization that implements a range of advertising and community action programs to reduce methamphetamine use in the state. Launched in June 2009, the Hawaii Meth Project leverages a proven model that combines extensive research with a hard-hitting, integrated media campaign.

The Hawaii Meth Project is affiliated with the Meth Project, a national non-profit organization headquartered in Palo Alto, California, aimed at significantly reducing first-time Meth use through public service messaging, public policy, and community outreach.
