Recently, Director of ONDCP, Michael Botticelli talked to HC DrugFree’s Executive Director, Joan Webb Scornaienchi about drug use and prevention efforts in Howard County. Shortly after this photo, Mr. Botticelli, someone who freely acknowledges being in recovery, received notice that his confirmation would be before the Senate on Monday, February 9th. Joan was close enough to hear an emotional Mr. Botticelli say “It’s all about recovery” as he struggled to fight tears.
Joan talked with Drug Czar, General Barry McCaffery and received a hug for her work. General McCaffery said his position as Director of ONDCP was his most important job ever.
Robert White, Esq. joined Drug Czar, Dr. William Bennett to sign Joan’s copy of their new book, Going to Pot. Earlier in the day, she heard Dr. Bennett speak about how legalizing marijuana is harming America.
