Alcohol 
Consumption or carrying Alcohol has legal restrictions. Typically, alcohol comes in a liquid form, but can be enclosed in any form. Be aware that there are legal limits on usage of alcohol. More specifically, driving after consumption of alcohol is  illegal and is dangerous to everyone.
Drugs
AAADA
There are various kinds of drugs that come in a different form that can alter functioning of your mind and the way you behave. Also, there are legal implications when you carry or consume these drugs without proper authorization from a Government recognized agency. Be aware of this and follow the rules. More specifically, driving after consumption of drugs is illegal and is dangerous to everyone.
All Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (AAADA) is a non-profit group founded by Adarsh Konda in order to bring awareness in the community about abuse of alcohol and drugs.

AAADA's goal is to promote awareness and implications when consuming and carrying alcohol and drugs. We promote this awareness by posting information on this website, by distributing educational material at public events, and giving talks at gatherings.

Ideas of promoting these goals have started in October 2016, and we are bringing these to the mainstream for the benefit of individuals and communities. AAADA is consisting of the Founder (Adarsh K) and volunteer committee members.

We welcome new volunteers and suggestions. Please send us your contact information and any message by filling out the below contact form. One of our team members will get back to you.

Also, please send us your event information so that either we can send the material to be distributed or we can request one of our volunteers to be at the event to promote the awareness.
